More bookworms are taking to social media to share their favorite books, authors, and genres with their followers. In fact, according to the New York Times, staying home in 2020 was great for book sales. Print books had their best year in a decade, e-book sales increased, and audiobooks went up 16.5 percent from 2019 to 2020. That popularity is still easy to see on Instagram, where the #bookstagram hashtag has more than 77 million posts. These #Bookstagram accounts share their reviews, recommendations and latest hauls.
