Website | @JustBethanne

Bethanne Patrick is Executive Editor of Book Riot, a web site for engaged readers about today’s book culture.

Her Twitter bio cheekily notes that Bethanne is “The Artist Formerly Known as @TheBookMaven,” an account that has grown to over 135K followers and is now the official Twitter account for her book-promotion business and popular meme, @FridayReads.

Bethanne’s second book with National Geographic was released last October: “An Uncommon History of Common Courtesy: How Manners Shaped the World.”
