BookTok Is Big for Book Discovery

Lauren Brown writes the following in “More Than Half of Young Readers Credit BookTok With Sparking Passion for Reading, PA Finds” for The Bookseller:

A poll conducted by the Publishers Association has found more than half of young readers credit BookTok, a subcommunity on the social media platform TikTok focused on books and literature, with helping them discover a passion for reading.

Of 2,001 16–25-year-olds surveyed by the organisation in October, 59% said that BookTok or book influencers had ‘helped them discover a passion for reading’, while more than half (55%) said they turn to BookTok for recommendations. Moreover, 68% said BookTok had inspired them to read a book that they would have never considered otherwise.
