Online book communities have grown a lot lately, and for good reason. They are dedicated to bringing all the book-related content that book lovers crave. One community that has grown especially is book channels on YouTube, where you can find all sorts of content, from reading vlogs, to book hauls, reviews, reading lists by topic or season, and news of your favorite authors.
The BookTube community has grown and diversified, with genres and topics for any taste. So, maybe you are an avid reader who is constantly looking for more new material, or maybe you really enjoy reading, but you don’t have the time or energy to invest in a story without knowing it’s going to be worth your while. This is where BookTubers come along. On YouTube, you can find countless content creators with channels dedicated specifically to book lists and reviews, so that you get new titles to add or scratch from your reading list.
