Nine of the Best #DressLikeABook Photos!

This is the Twitter trend you need to watch!

The nonprofit organization Electric Literature, which works to make literature relevant, accessible, and inclusive, has just released a new contest under the hashtag #DressLikeABook.


The contest is simple: dress like the cover of a book, win a free tote bag that says READ MORE WOMEN. An exciting enough prize and a fun enough competition; people from the farthest depths of Instagram have been avidly posting their best book cover attempts.


Here are nine of the best:





















It’s #FuckFashionFriday because my oldest friend in the world, Sofija Stefanovic (and she is very old), has written a BOOK! 💛📒💛Miss Ex-Yugoslavia is a collection of funny and sad stories about growing up in Australia while the country we were born in fell apart. Apparently, even though we are the oldest of friends, I didn't make it into the book, but there is a hilarious story about my mother and her unfortunate encounter with an Ozzie cop. The magnificent memoir is available in the US, Australia and on @amazon. Also, @electricliterature has started a very geeky competition - #DressLikeABook. Dress as your favorite book cover and tag them for a chance to win some lovely stuff. #Literacy #Yellow #ReadABook #MissExYugoslavia #Yugoslavia #Jugoslavija

My very loose interpretation of the Handmaids uniform. . . Currently (re)reading: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood . . I wanted to reread this before I started the series (I have yet to watch a single episode. I know, I know...). When I first read it, I liked it but didn’t love it, but i was also in one of those reading moods where the words just seemed to wash over me instead of fully absorbing it. Here’s hoping Round 2 fares better 🤷🏻‍♀️ . . #thehandmaidstale #margaretatwood #womenwriters #feministliterature #currentlyreading #reread #books #bookstagram #bookstagrammer #bookaddict #bookaddicted #bookaholic #bookworm #bibliophile #booklover #booksofinstagram #igreads #igbooks #instareads #instabooks #humpday #red #DressLikeABook
