9 Websites For Readers Who Think About Books All Day

Please check your E-mail inbox or spam to confirm.

I love books and I love the internet, which means I’m always looking for great sites about books. If you’re reading this, you’re probably the same way. The great news is that there’s also a huge online literary community to explore. Every site has its own flavor and its own pizzaz. There’s plenty of fun, diverse ways that you can engage with writing and reading. Whether you like reading about writing, reading about reading, or you just want something new to read, there’s plenty of options for you out there.


What’s really special about the online literary world is that with all of this free content, it’s really easy to be a reader without emptying your bank account. What this accessibility means is that reading (an already extremely democratic activity) is something that people from all economic backgrounds can do. Can we just take a moment to geek out about how cool that is?

It also means that it’s super easy to interact with your favorite authors. So many authors are also contributors at these websites. So while you’re waiting for their next book, you can soak up as much of their lovely brain as you can.

As someone who spends literally all day on the literary web, here are my top recommendations for sites that readers and writers will adore.

Book reviews, interviews, essays, and more, The Rumpus is a must when browsing the literary web. With regular contributors that include Roxane Gay and Cheryl Strayed (see her advice column, Dear Sugar), the content on this site is top-notch.

If you’re like me, you judge people by their books. This Tumblr takes it one step further, with spies in urban areas keeping tabs on what people are reading on public transportation. This is a fun way to discover new reads, and get the low-down on what books are really popular.
