Well, thankfully bookworms can now go even further when discussing their favourite reads as the video sharing site has a brand new feature.

Users are allowed to share links to their favourite books for the first time.

But there’s a slight catch – it only with books published by Penguin for now.

So how does it work?

How to link a book on TikTok

Go ahead and create your video as normal on TikTok first.

Once it’s ready to go, tap Next for the page where you write your description and add other bits, like tagging people.

Look for Add link.

Here, search ‘Book’.

Then you search for the book title you’re looking for.

How to view books on TikTok

If your favourite TikToker is talking about a book, you should see a link to it at the bottom of their video.

It’ll be right above the caption.

Clicking the link takes you to a special page with extra details about the book, such as a brief summary and other videos about it.

You can even save titles to your Favourites tab on your profile as well.

Are other publishers coming to #BookTok?

At the moment you can only link to books by Penguin.

It’s also only available in the US and the UK.

But bookworms across the land will be hoping others follow.
