While we’ve all been stuck at home, many of us have turned to our favorite books and authors as a source of comfort. Whether we’re seeking to feel inspired, learn about our world’s fascinating history, make a connection through stories or just escape into an entirely different reality, books can provide the words we so desperately need to hear.

YouTube Originals has premiered BookTube’s ninth episode in which some of our favorite authors, celebrities and BookTubers came together to share the books that have kept them uplifted, distracted, entertained and engaged over the past few months.

Authors John Grisham, James Patterson, Scott Turow, Emma Straub, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sue Monk Kidd, Lisa See, and Nicolas Sparks along with Chelsea Handler, comedian Cameron Espisito and actor Tituss Burgess are just some of the folks sharing their latest reads.

New episodes premiere the third Thursday of each month.
