20 bookish Halloween costumes we loved

Halloween night was filled with tricks, treats, candy, and costumes — and we saw some GREAT costumes! We asked our readers to share their bookish costumes with us, and they didn't disappoint! Below is a small selection of the images we saw: Scroll on down and maybe you'll get inspired for next year!

Dog Man galore!



Dog Man says, “Ruff,” which means, “Happy Halloween” or “Get off my tail.” We’re not sure.
