Why Instagram (Bookstagram) Helps Showcase Your Books:

Hello! I’m Ronyell (a.k.a Rabbitearsblog) and I am an official member of the bookstagramming community on Instagram!

First of all, I would like to congratulate Maureen’s Books for celebrating her Blogiversary this year and I am so honored to present my guest post on her blog for the special occasion!
So, onto the guest post!

So, I have been using Instagram for many years now and over the years, my tastes in how I take book photos had changed over time.  Not only has the appearances of my book photos changed over time, but I had begun to discover about the many ways that Instagram can be very helpful whenever you are showcasing books in general.

https://www.instagram.com/rabbitearsblog/First of all, there are a ton of awesome book photos floating around Instagram and the many ways that the photos showcased the books are done in a very creative way and they should definitely be given more attention around the world!  This is one of the many wonderful reasons why Instagram can be very helpful in showcasing various books!  So, the first thing you look for whenever you go book photo sighting is that you are looking for photos that are very beautiful and creative and some of the most creative book photos can grab your attention right off the ball and will not only have you gaze in wonder at the beauty of the photo, but also pay attention to the book that is being showcased.  Once the viewer sees the book being showcased, then they will automatically go out of their way to buy the book because of how much love and dedication the photographer put into the photo to get you to check the book out for itself!  Now, that is not to say that only the most beautiful and creative book photos will get attention, but just having any kind of book photo will be enough to convince the viewer to check out the book and put your favorite book or set of books in the spotlight!

https://www.instagram.com/rabbitearsblog/Another reason why Instagram can help showcase your books is that they show how much love and dedication the photographer has for the books they are showcasing!  It’s always fantastic to show your love for the books you’ve purchased or borrowed and what better way to do that than to take pictures of your books and your bookshelf?  The viewers will have the chance to check out how many books you have and how well you decorate your bookshelf and your books to showcase your enjoyment of showing off your books and bookshelf!

So those are the reasons why I think that Instagram can help showcase your books and I hope that Instagram continues to help fellow readers showcase their books for the world to see!


Do you have an Instagram account and if so, do you enjoy showcasing your books?
