Giveaway on My Bookstagram!


I have officially reached 500 followers on my bookstagram, @samsaraparchment, and I am so, so, so excited! Bookstagram is honestly a wonderful community, I’ve met so many amazing people there, and made some awesome friends! I want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to each and every one of my bookstagram followers for helping me to reach 500! It truly means so much to me that 500 of you want to see my pictures and see what I think! I hope y’all know that I mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say that I appreciate you!

So, all of this information is in my 500 Followers Giveaway post (look for the picture above) on Instagram, but I thought I’d reiterate the information here (with a little bit of extra, since I don’t have a character limit here….), and include some close up pictures of the prizes if anyone is interested!

So, first things first:


  • a $25 Barnes & Noble Gift Card so that you can purchase any book your heart desires! (also works on their website,
  • a French Bull brand clip on reading light (I have this same reading light and I take it with me everywhere! It’s super bright, flexible, easy to clip onto any book, and perfect for reading while camping, traveling, or just hiding under the covers/living in a pillow fort. Seriously, I don’t judge.)
  • one package of Page Mates page flags (I don’t know about anyone else, but I love stickering the heck out of my books with these as I read! I sticker my favorite parts, favorite quotes, interesting parts…long story short, my book is covered with them by the time I’m done.)
  • 4 pack of magnetic Harry Potter bookmarks – Harry, Hedwig, Dobby, and Hagrid
  • a pair of cozy, cute knee socks featuring a pattern of adorable woodland animals (because y’all know I LOVE #socksunday)
  • a Green Room brand polka dot journal
  • a 3 pack of cute gel pens (teal, orange, and dark gray)



This gift card is loaded with $25 so you can purchase one hardcover, or a few paperbacks, if you’re a bargain hunter, maybe even more! The world is yours, my dear. And by the world I mean this gift card.
