As far as social media goes, Twitter takes the cake for a few things. Unlike Facebook, it’s controversial character limit keeps posts brief and to the point — no page long rants, unless you click on links. Unlike Instagram, you can include links into any post, and similar to both, you can follow people who share your interests. Here is a list of Twitter accounts that have one thing in common — the love of books!
1. Book Nerd (@booknerdfession)
Book Nerd is best known for posting bookish quotes that are insightful, inspiring, and downright magical.
“I told her once I wasn’t good at anything. She told me survival is a talent.”
— Susanna Kaysen, Girl, Interrupted

4. Novel Publicity (@NovelPublicity)
Novel Publicity is largely for authors who need help getting their work out there. However, for anyone else who loves novels, there is a major perk to following this Twitter account! Novel Publicity posts links to sneak peaks at new books. Read the first few chapters and then you can decide if you want to purchase the book when it’s released. It’s a win-win relationship for readers and authors alike!
