Meet the Bookstagrammer:@crazytourists_books



  • How did you start bookstagram? It was the reason you made your account or not?

I have been an instagramer for the past couple of years and lately I 've been thinking about making an account just for books. So a few days ago I joined the bookstagram community!
  • How did you come up with your bookstagram name?

I have been a (amateur) blogger since 2007 with the name crazytourists so naturally when I joined instagram I used that name, and for my bookstagram account I wanted a name that would relate to my blog. So the name crazytourists_books was the perfect choice
  • How did you cοme up with your first theme?It was a spesific theme or just photos and why?

It was just a photo. I had some beautiful daffodils and I wanted to take a photo of the books I read in January.
  • What or who inspires you? 

       Nature, flowers, my kids, food...               
  • Which is the reason you have been part of this community?

It is always nice to belong to a group of people that share your passions and loves. Books, baking, knitting... Whatever those are. Plus, you get pretty good ideas about what to read next.
  • Do you want to be a "big" account or "small" and why? Does the followers count to you?

I haven't really though about that. I wouldn't say no to lots of followers I guess, but I prefer them to be people that my photos and readings speak to.
  • Do you interact with your followers and have you made friends? If so do you like this and why?

I love interacting with others and I have made some friends through instagram. For me there is no point in just posting and never comment or like other posts.
  • Why do you love books? What do they mean to you?

That's a hard question. It's like asking me why I love my kids. I just do. I love the smell of books, I love the feeling of the paper, the stories. Reading is like traveling. And I love to travel.
  • Which is your favorite book and why?

Pfff... That's even tougher to answer. I love lots of books, some of them by greek authors (like Karagatsis), some of them classics, some contemporary. One of the books that I read in 2017 and really earned a spot in my all time favorites list, was Confiteor. I got lost in its pages, I became part of the story. And that is precious for me.
  • Tell me two bookish fun facts about you!

I don't know if they are funny but 1. I can't quit reading a book even if I hate it. Seriously! In a few days I'll be 35 years old and I' ve only quit on 4 books (with extreme guilt) 2. I never, ever, ever, ever lent my books. If younwant to read my book, you should live under my roof until you finish it!
  • Which is you favorite photo of your feed? (Upload it)

  • Tell me your biggest dream of being a part of bookstagram? Which the most exciting thing you wanna do/be?

My biggest dream? I don't know. Having people tell me the read a book I recommended that stole their heart. I don't have any big plans, I just want to have fun
  • Do you spend more money for your bookstagram or not? Do you think it worths?

I don't plan to spend any money on it...
  • Have you ever thought of giving up and why?

I haven't. I 'm a new bookstagrammer, I am still excited!
  • Have you received negative comments/messages about you or your feed and how do you act?

I never had a negative comment/message on instagram. I don' t know how I would react, it depends on the comment. Is it polite? Personal?....
  • Lastly, what would you advice someone who starts bookstagram?

I am in no position to give advice. If I had to say something, it would be "have fun and be true". That's what I try to do and that's what I look for un other accounts.
