For authors offers 1-minute book review videos. Together, these videos form a growing collection of positive reading suggestions for book lovers. All books can be purchased via the website.

In the videos, people simply explain why they love this particular book. They share how a book has touched them, inspired them, or made them laugh or cry.

So far, most videos are in Dutch. That will change. We have a growing number of English video’s.  You’ll find the complete list at the bottom of this page.

Working with authors

Why I Love This Book loves to work with authors. We always make two videos with authors:

  1. A video about your latest book (~ 1 minute). In this  video, the author tells the story of why he/she wrote this book. We are looking for compelling stories about the idea, background, reasons, anecdotes, etc. As little synopsis as possible, we’ll put that on the site in text. If you want, you can read a small fragment of your book.
  2. A video about a book that you really love (~ 1 minute). That is a ‘regular’ Why I Love This Book video, and no, it can’t be about a book you wrote 😉 In this video, you share why you love this book. How it ttouched, moved, inspired you.

The videos will be published on, and on the Whyilovethisbook Youtube Channel. Authors, publishers and others can embed the video’s on their website.


Why I Love This Book prefers to make the videos with you. If that is not a possibility, you can make a video yourself, and send it to us. All self-made video’s will be published on the Why I Love This Book Youtube Channel. And all videos that meet our quality standards, will also be published on the Why I Love This website.
