Booknerd Wednesday: Twitter Edition

Get ready for some very specific booknerd tweets that will hopefully add some LOLs to your hump day.

I’ve scoured the internet – and by scoured I mean I just did a simple search and these were actually very easy to find – looking for twitterers who just get what it means to be a booknerd, and/or make fun of booknerds.
