Welcome to our occasional series of bookish delights. In Part One, we’d like to introduce you to a couple of our favourite BookTubers that we’ve been following lately. BookTube often seems like such a YA phenomenon, teeming with enthusiastic young vloggers, and we wondered what was out there for inquisitive readers over the age of 21.
A real find for us was Simon Savidge (@SavidgeReads). Known as The Bookaholic With a Beard, Simon’s vlogs are chatty, unpretentious and totally up to the minute.
Just as knowledgeable and assured is author Jen Campbell (@jenvcampbell), vlogging about all things bookish to over 44,000 followers.
We also find Lauren’s enthusiasm at Reads and Daydreams (@readsanddaydreams) quite contagious and like her choice of books. Lauren won BookTuber of the year at the London Book Fair in April.
A medium that demands real warmth and personality, BookTube is an excellent addition to literary broadcasting. Check out Jen, Lauren and Simon’s weekly vlogs, they’ll soon seem like friends.
