6 mins read

On April 23, “International Book Day” is celebrated, the date was established by UNESCO, with the aim of promoting reading, the publishing industry and the protection of intellectual property through copyright.

In turn, April 23 is a special day in the world of letters since that day, in 1616, Cervantes, Garcilaso de la Vega and Shakespeare died (with some exceptions, since Cervantes actually died on the 22nd, but was buried the 23rd, and as for Shakespeare, that April 23rd corresponds to the Julian calendar, still in force in Elizabethan England).

However, 406 years after the departure of those mentors and representatives of the literary universe, there is now a community of creators on YouTube who share their passion for literature and promote the habit of reading.

Booktubers, as these book influencers are called, promote this habit, either through electronic devices or in analog format, and capture millions of followers who daily look for their next reading, or debate, as a result of what is currently being read.

According to Google searches, in the world, there is an increase in interest in these communities as of May 2020.

That is why on this commemorative day we present these influencers who, with very different styles, create entertaining and illustrative content about what they love most: Books.
