Bookstagram: 20 Instagram Accounts for Book Lovers

Since launching Lectito in June, I’ve loved getting to know my way around the wonderful world of #bookstagram, an insta-community of fellow booknerds eager to share their love of literature with the world. It’s a place for micro-reviewing, reading recommendations, fun games of book tag, fangirling and fanboying over latest book hauls, recent reads, rare editions and more. But most of all it’s about sharing some seriously gorgeous #bookporn.
