bookstagram-in-the-wild

After being a part of #bookstagram for several months, as well as Goodreads, and having a Twitter used primarily for book purposes, I have noticed several general trends.  I thought it would be interesting to informally analyze the “mob mentality” of bookstagram (and other bookish social media outlets) from a hopefully unbiased point of view; thus my new series The Booksta Mentality was born!  There are going to be several things that I want to open for discussion over the course of a few months including our obsession with candles, giveaways, bookmarks, why some books get more credit than others, etc.
