Happy October!
You know what October means? Halloween is coming.
And A Year of Reading is hosting a VIRTUAL HALLOWEEN PARTY!
YOU ARE INVITED! Now, in case you are wondering what to wear, we have some ideas.
Instead of dressing as your favorite decade (as we have all done in the past) we want you to dress as one of your favorite book characters.
If you'd like to join us, start thinking now. Then, sometime between October 26 and October 30, post a photo of yourself in your costume on your own blog or site and then send the link to A Year of Reading (details on where to link closer to the party date!). Then, we will all be together for this fun Halloween event. What better way to celebrate Halloween than to see all of the great costumes of the Kidlitosphere!)
And, of course, there will be a prize for BEST COSTUME. You are eligible if you dress as a book character and have your photo to us by Friday, October 30 at midnight. The winner of our BEST COSTUME contest will receive Ohio's favorite candy for their Trick-or-Treat bag --Buckeyes from Anthony Thomas.
We can't wait to see you at our party!
(And, don't forget: CYBILS Nominations begin today. So, while you are thinking about your costume, make sure to put in your nominations!)


  1. Oh, boy! This morning I said that every day in October is going to be great. (This is part of my prep for the long winter...) And look--a party!

  2. Hmmm... what will I wear??
