Favorite Character Selfies

Celebrate with Us in Cosplay!

Readers should dress up as their favorite fictional character on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) using the hashtag #FamilyReadathon and tagging the Library Foundation and BookSpring. The top posts will be eligible for special prizes! Posts will be judged based on creativity, how well they represent the book’s themes, and overall engagement. We will repost and share your creativity to help promote the Readathon and cheer on Readathoners! 

How to Participate

  • Step 1: Select a character from your personal Reading Wish List.
  • Step 2: Create a costume out of anything you have around the house.  It can be your own interpretation of the character, not something you’ve seen on a screen. Don’t be afraid to get creative!
  • Step 3: Snap a photo of yourself in your costume and post to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Be sure to tag BookSpring and the Library Foundation and use the hashtag #FamilyReadathonPlease post early in February order to be considered for prizes. By tagging The Library Foundation and BookSpring, you agree to have your entry shared and re-posted. All posts must be public in order to be shared and reposted. 

Encourage friends and family to view your post and create their own!
