 FAQ

Q: Why do I have to sign up?

First, you have to sign up to be eligible to win our prizes. Second, when you sign up, you’re sharing your social media info with other participants. This is the perfect way to make new bookish friends and see what everyone else is reading. Sign up early to make those connections now so you can chat and make plans for the weekend of April 22-24! (Like swapping books, sharing your favorite snack recipe, or getting recommendations.)

Q: What’s this about a private community?

A: New this year! Feminist Book Club has moved our discussion community off of Facebook (because they’re the wooOOOooorst) and we’re inviting you to check out our new community platform for FREE during the weekend of the Readathon. JOIN US HERE!
(Please note: if you do not cancel your virtual membership in 7 days, you will be charged $12/month. We do this to maintain the safety of our community. However, this perk is complementary with any FBC subscription.)

Q: Does it cost anything?

Nope. All are welcome! Note: The virtual community has a 7-day free trial and if you’re not already a Feminist Book Club subscriber, you will be charged $12/month after the trial expires.

Q: Can I join if I’m not in the United States?

Yes! And you’re even eligible to win prizes!

Q: What can I win?

WE HAVE SO MANY PRIZES, and they’re not just books. Our big prize is a 6-month subscription to Feminist Book Club! Check back soon for more. And make sure you’re following @feministbookclubbox on Instagram for sneak peeks.

Q: How do I win?

Participate in the prompts, discussions, and challenges all weekend long and be sure to use #FBCReadathon on every post on every social media platform! We’ll contact you through that platform, whether it be Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, or Goodreads. Make sure you’re checking your DMs!

Q: Do I have to read all 72 hours to be eligible for prizes?

No way, rules are for suckers. Just read as much as you want, read as much as you can, read as much as makes sense for your life. This readathon is your excuse to carve out some time to catch up on all the amazing literature out there that you’ve been wanting to read. You’re welcome.

Q: How will I know if I’ve won?

Bookmark this page and come back to it throughout the weekend to see if your name has been drawn! We’ll contact you through the social media platform first but double check here. Winners should email us (hello@feministbookclub.com) to claim their prize. (We’ll remind you, don’t worry.)

Q: Can I share this with my friends?

Abso-fruit-ly. Here’s a badge you can use to share on social media, too!

Q: What should I post during the readathon?

We’ll have challenges all weekend long! These will include things like “Show us your book stack” and “Who’s your favorite fictional character?” Be sure to use #FBCReadathon on all content you share so we can give it some love!

Q: Does my social media account need to be public?

Yes, for the duration of the weekend, your account will need to be public to participate and be eligible for prizes. You can switch it back to private as soon as the event is over. In previous years, participants have created dedicated social media accounts just for the #FBCReadathon, so that’s always an option!

Q: Do you have any book suggestions?

Do we ever! Check out our Bookshop site. We keep a curated list of what’s on our TBR and we’ll be sure to keep it up-to-date for ya.

Q: Why are you doing this? What’s the point?

Listen, we’ve all had a shitty couple of years. Let’s spend a weekend in the pages of someone else’s stories, connecting with others with similar interests, and focusing inward in the face of all the chaos outside. We need to build up some reserves of rest and this is the perfect opportunity. As Audre Lorde bravely wrote in the face of cancer, “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare” (A Burst of Light: and Other Essays).
