Bookum (Shorthand for “Book Community”) is a dynamic social book clubbing and networking platform for readers and authors alike. Create clubs, join community Nooks (Live Podcasting), and even monetize your bookish-generated content (BGC).

Bookum is where ‘Bookish Conversations Happen’ so connect with your friends on a platform made for book lovers!



All great books (and even bad books) need to be discussed and Nooks are the place to do it! Nooks are our social-audio rooms that allow you to have real-time book discussions. If something juicy happens in your book, invite your friends and talk about it! No more having to wait to connect.

Book Clubs

Bring your offline book club online with a full immersive and communal book club experience. You can choose to host a private club with selected friends only (great for small group book clubs) or you can even make your club open to the public and let any app user join in on the fun! Club features include private Nooks, dynamic group chats, and admin tools that allow you to add friends and authors to join in on your book discussions. No more having to jump from app to app to host your online book clubs. Host it all in one spot!

Membership Clubs

Book Content creators create so much value for the book space and your members want to show you an appreciation for your amazing bookish-generated content (BGC). Host book clubs, Nooks, and other exclusive content and allow your members a monthly subscription to your Membership Club.


Share books, photos, blogs, and reviews that the community can comment on and react to. Find like-minded readers to connect with and follow… Who knows maybe you all will even start a book club together!

Join now, thank me later!

I’ve been riding with Bookum for a while now. I started as a beta users and the app has come so far. The developers are so receptive to feedback and are building a community for book lovers and content creators. I’ve gotten tons of great recommendations from seeing what others are reading and checking out their reviews. I love to be able to share what I’m reading with a community who gets it.

Loved this App

I was a beta user and the app was awesome! I love how easy it is to use. My favorite part was the book progress features and the nooks

Mic Difficulties

I’m not sure if my mic is on or off while in a Nook Session. The icon doesn’t change on my end symbols or light up in any manner red/green for me to know. I fear interrupting speakers or accidentally have it on without knowing. Thus driving me away from events. Pls fix this ux.

Developer Response ,

Absolutely, I understand your concern. In the Nook Session, the mic is automatically turned off when you're in the "listener" area. You won't inadvertently interrupt speakers or have your mic on without realizing it. Once you're on the "stage," you'll see a clear "mute" or "unmute" mic icon, giving you full control over your audio. So feel free to participate without worrying about accidental interruptions!
