The Best Bookish Twitter Accounts To Follow For Literature Lovers

October 9, 2017

“What are the top Twitter Accounts to follow for Book Lovers?” We looked at 177 different channels, aggregating and ranking them into the following list!

Previously we highlighted the Best Websites To Visit For Book Lovers, and now we are following that up with a series of articles showcasing the best bookish personalities and sources to follow in a variety of different areas.

We put together a full Twitter List of all the accounts listed here if you would like an easy way to follow them all.

Because of how we put these articles together (aggregate as many “Best Book Twitter” articles as we can find and rank the individual items by how many times they appear), sometimes a top ranking entry may be somewhat outdated. There are a few accounts on this list that are no longer active, but we decided to keep them because they all still have a nice back catalog to go through. We did highlight those articles though, so it isn’t a mystery as to which are still active.

The additional 125+ twitter accounts that didn’t rank in the top 34 are listed in alphabetical order at the bottom of the page, as are the articles we used to make our list.

Like we mentioned in our Instagram article, a proper Best Twitter Accounts post wouldn’t be complete unless we shamelessly promoted our own account as well. We can be found at @bookscrolling where we mostly curate interesting book related information we see online (a lot of it coming from the accounts ranked below).

Happy Scrolling!
