Discover Your Next Favorite Book
Books on GIF is a smart, fun and free biweekly newsletter that's the animated alternative to boring book reviews.
‘Books on GIF is a brilliant high-low fusion of an old art form and modern story telling device.’ — Esquire
‘Books on GIF is exactly what it sounds like: a book review sent every other week, told with gifs.’ — Book Riot
‘Books on GIF is one of my favorite bookish newsletters.’ — What to Read If
Books on GIF launched in 2016 to provide an alternative to the sameness in book criticism. Everywhere you looked, from legacy publications to social media, you saw the same books, the same authors and the same discussions.
BoG is different. We highlight the popular as well as the obscure, and seek to bring fun and fresh air to conversations about books. We emphasize the joy of reading and connecting to books that have personal meaning, not whether a book is 'good' or 'bad.'
Newsletters hit your inbox every other Sunday. And they’re free.
We look forward to helping you find your next favorite book.
Books on GIF is the animated alternative to boring book reviews. Enjoy!
