Twitter is useful for a lot of things: finding cute kitten photos, reading breaking news, finding cute puppy photos, seeing what movies Emma Watson will not be starring in, finding cute hedgehog photos, stalking James Franco—you get the point. But for book lovers, Twitter is also a great place to follow the random hopes, dreams, and interests of your favorite authors, from the esteemed William Shakespeare to R.L. Stein, the man whose job it is to terrify children. Herewithin, my very own personal trail mix of the best in the bookish twitterati, from nonfiction heavyweights like David Grann to geek gods like Will Wheaton.
