Towel Day ( http://towelday.org/
) is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001) - for a biography see http://en.wikipedia.org/---/Douglas_adams
I thought I could just wear a towel that day, but why not get other Bookcrossers who love Douglas Adams involved too?
So, here's the Challenge: On Friday 25 May (your local time) release as many of Douglas Adams' books as possible. These can be books written by, collaborations with, containing stories by, or books about Douglas Adams. The list on the Fantastic Fiction website seems pretty complete - see http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/---/douglas-adams
All releases must be wild. Releases to OBCZs, donated to a charity or thrift shop, and the like will be considered wild.
Releases that fit multiple release challenges are welcome.
After making your releases, record them here with and a link to your journal entry. Please mention in your release notes that the book was released as part of this challenge and/or as part of Towel Day with a link to that website
Report any catches (and new members resulting from this challenge). A link to the journal entry would also be appreciated.
While I'm sure we can all have a lot of fun with this, I will also offer some prizes, Wings for a month for:
- the BCer with the most number of releases,
- the BCer who does the most innovative or amusing themed release (at least IMHO),
- the BCer who uploads the most interesting or amusing release photo (again, IMHO), and,
- one other BCer who released any book, not received one of the other prizes, and who will be drawn at random.
You can post your releases and catches at any time, but the above prizes will be awarded by me sometime on the weekend of 2-3 June.
"Oh freddled gruntbuggly thy micturations are to me
As plurdled gabbleblotchits on a lurgid bee.
Groop I implore thee, my foonting turlingdromes.
And hooptiously drangle me with crinkly bindlewurdles,
Or I will rend thee in the gobberwarts with my blurglecruncheon, see if I don't!"
