Twitter has proved itself to be the most popular site for social networking for people who love books. It’s the most popular online book club that connects book lovers across the globe, providing the latest information about when the book you’ve been waiting for all year will finally be available, as well as giving you the possibility to tweet your top authors and even make your book-related fantasies become a reality by getting a response.

This is why this list of must-follow Twitter feeds is for book lovers. Just a few swipes on your phone, and you’ll have a plethora of book recommendations, reviews, top-10 listicles and excerpts, quotes, and endless opportunities to win books for free in just a few simple steps.

If your TBR pile isn’t quite big enough, here is a list of some Twitter profiles for those who read all day long.

Bethanne Patrick, via @TheBookMaven

Bookforum Magazine, via @bookforum

The Twitter feed of Bookforum Magazine is a sure sign that you’re going be able to make your mark when you follow these people. The magazine is known for its thoughtful and artistic book reviews, and its Twitter feed certainly reflects that. In addition, with their somewhat subversive tone, they’re a great source to learn about the books that may not be on the radar of other readers.

BookPage, via @bookpage

As the Twitter feed for the monthly publication of book reviews is @bookpage, you’ll see your TBR pile rising within a matter of minutes. With a wide range of interests and a vast array of all kinds of literary genres, from historical and biography to romance and mystery, there’s something to suit everyone.

Book Riot, via @BookRiot

Their slogan is “Always books. Never boring.” They meet their promise. Book Riot’s content is varied, inclusive, and funny. You shouldn’t be missing the Our Reading Lives series, either.

Books Report, via @Booksreport

Publishing book content from all over the world, Books Report is going to be the go-to resource for retweets related to books. They’re interesting and timely, and at 28.6K tweets, they don’t miss anything.

Electric Literature, via @ElectricLit

The Twitter feed of @ElectricLIt is the reason why many of us were at the AWP convention trying to track a “Yoga For Writers” poster ⁠— you already know you want one, so check out their website! Since it is the Twitter official account of non-profit Electric Literature, this feed is solely dedicated to creating an online community of writers and readers. Do not miss their recommendations for reading!

GalleyCat, via @GalleyCat

Your go-to Twitter for the latest news in the world of books. The @galleycat feed covers everything from new book releases and publishing events, adaptations of films to books, and the most recent and best essential products to meet your book-loving desires. There is much more.

Goodreads, via @goodreads

If you’re not already following Goodreads on Twitter, we do not know what you’ve been doing all these years. No one is more passionate about reading than this group, and you can also be grateful for Emma Watson’s book club for women.

New York Times Books, via @nytimesbooks

It is worth noting that the New York Times book section is an excellent source for reviews of books, reflections on the current state of reading and writing literature and many other book-related articles. Authors often come to the site to read reviews of other books, and that’s really amazing.

Guardian Books, via @GuardianBooks

The same sort of greatness in books like that of the New York Times, this account provides an excellent foundation for the East-of-the-Atlantic literary scene, including reviews, interviews with authors, and fun quips.

NY Review of Books, via @nybooks

The slightly narcissistic self-anointing as “The premier literary-intellectual magazine in the English language” aside, the New York Review is a great place for readers. In addition to reviews on books, you’ll also be able to read amazingly well-written articles that cover other genres and more.

LA Times Books, @latimesbooks

Although not as popular as its east coast contemporaries, the LA Times‘ newspaper section and book blog are fantastic for reviews (which they have more of than other feeds) and author interviews and essays.

HuffPost Books, via @HuffPostBooks

Another online news source with an amazing book section, you can be immersed in HuffPost books for several days. They’re great for covering female-oriented books or for women, as well as on women. They also have a wealth of other fantastic books on diverse topics and genres.

Best Career Options for Book Lovers

Bes Career Choices for Book Lovers

Maybe you’ve recently completed your degree in English Literature or Creative Writing. Perhaps you’re considering changing careers and pursuing a career that requires more reading. Maybe you’re already spending most of your day reading and are thinking about how you could do this and still purchase groceries. The good news is that there’s no need to starve in a room filled with new hardcovers. There are jobs available in the field of books! We’re not saying that all of these industries are simple to get into, but there are some fantastic career options for people who love reading.

Before you dive through the list of jobs for readers, be cautious about what you wish for. The most rewarding careers options for those who love books could be those that don’t require reading books. Consider if working with books for a long time will make you lose the fascination of their appeal. However, if you believe that you’re the type of person for whom the bell for a book job rings, get out there and polish your resume.

Author

This isn’t a job for the weak of heart. However, one must get down to creating all those novels, short stories, and memoirs out of sheer passion. The only issue lies in the fact that unless you’re a famous celebrity, it is highly likely that you will need to write a complete novel before you’ll be able to land an author deal. If you want to be an author, start writing!

Blogger

Your parents were lying to you that you could make an income posting your thoughts online without any hustle. Well, it’s a competitive industry. In the beginning, hone the skills by applying for staff writer jobs at websites and magazines. Once you become a prolific writer, start your own blog, get a cult following through it, and then start earning through ad sale revenue and influencer deals.

Book Reviewer

It’s possible that you won’t get an interview with a book reviewer in The New York Times right now, but plenty of smaller and more popular websites are always seeking a new review of the latest releases. Being paid to go through a novel and then discuss it can be an ideal career option for a book lover.

Librarians

Librarians are the ones helping to keep the society running, you guys. They’re not just there to organize books or wear cool glasses, they’re experts in the area of library science, and they ensure that art and information are open and accessible. Becoming a librarian means you’ll be surrounded by books and do your part in saving the world.

Editor

There wouldn’t be an industry of books without editors cleaning the mess. Copy editors scrutinize an article to improve its grammar, style, clarity and accuracy. Content editors take the author’s words and turn them into a real story. If you are an editor, you’ll be able to save manuscripts and give them a brand new look that’s appeasing for the readers.

Archivist

“Archivist” may sound like some kind of wizard job straight out of a George R.R. Martin novel; However, it’s a real job that you could take part in. Archivists work to examine and preserve archives. These may range from old manuscripts, diaries, and postcards to digital files and analog films. Archivists are needed in universities, museums, libraries, hospitals and corporations, as well as everywhere in between.

Translator

If you’ve ever had the chance to translate a paragraph using Google Translate, you know the value of an individual translator. Literary translators aren’t just language dictionaries; they’re storytellers that reinterpret text into a completely new language. It’s a creative profession, particularly when it comes to idioms with no translation (or the process of figuring out the middle name of Voldemort in different dialects).

Proofreader

Many people believe that editors and proofreaders are the same (sometimes, they can be in smaller settings). However, large publishing houses have editors to edit their work. And proofreaders are used for scrutinizing the mistakes. If you’re adept at catching errors and spotting errors, you may be able to get an opportunity to read throughout the day.

Teacher

For most of us, teachers were the ones who taught us the joys of reading and the joy it is. Although they may work in stressful environments and often are underpaid, there’s no greater joy than the experience of introducing youngsters to the world of literature. It doesn’t matter if you’re keen to teach phonics or advanced literature at the college level; there are a variety of options to pick from. Even kindergartens and preschools are choices, and a lot of the teaching is played-based, but you can include literature in a variety of ways throughout the day with activities like storytime as well as tongue-twisters. In addition, elementary school teachers incorporate things like comprehension. Middle school teachers will incorporate the occasional reading comprehension, and it increases from there.

English Professor

Many professors opened the world of reading and books in a new way with in-depth dives into Langston Hughes’s work, long hours spent with Jane Austen, and close analysis of Leo Tolstoy. You may want to focus specifically on Shakespeare or prefer something broader, such as Western Literature. But this isn’t an occupation you could just enter into. It usually requires advanced degrees that require time, money, and privilege. If you can envision yourself influencing students’ minds and sharing your love for books, it’s the time to polish your skills and start working.
