10 Bookstore Instagram Accounts That Are So Cute You'll Squeal

Bookstores are the best, aren't they?

Even if you don't love books (gasp!) you have to recognize the serenity of a bookstore. Independent bookstores are quaint and charming and Barnes and Noble allows you to get lost, be it in the wide variety of books or vast floorspace amongst shelves. Bookstores, of course, are beloved by book worms for very obvious reasons.

Instagram is a great tool for inspiration and creativity. The platform does have problems (read braggadocious behavior) but it can help distract you during a bad day at work or inspire you to do something for yourself. That's why we found some of the best bookstore Instagram accounts that allow you to do just that, escape from your daily life and pop into a friendly store of books.

Take a look at some of the coolest bookstore Instagram accounts, who knows maybe they'll inspire you to read!
