Looking for something more from social media than vapid selfies and food pics? Well, then this is the post for you. Today, along with the community over at The Broke and Bookish, we’re looking at ten bookish people you should follow on Twitter right now!

Digital Humanities

Do you like pictures? Well, do the medievalists have pictures for you. Illuminated manuscripts, early printed books, marginalia, jousting monkeys. Whatever you want, they’ve got it. But wait, there’s more! Do you like donuts? Who doesn’t. Really just type in medievalist into the search bar. Better yet, click on #monktastic and #nuntastic and follow as many as you can. You won’t regret it.

The Digital Bird and Baby

Tolkien Professor

Founder of Mythgard institute and podcaster extraordinaire. I listened to his classes when I was still a government employee trying to keep myself sane. Thank you Prof. Olsen. Also, you have excellent taste:

I just saw The Force Awakens, and I don't care what anyone says: I loved it.
