Into the Wild Wild (April 21st - April 27th) - amended again

You may all think I'm crazy, but I got a notion in my head that I'd like to WILD release as many books as I can find with WILD in the title or author's name on International BookCrossing Day, April 21st, 2014 .

Like http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12541029 and http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12541030 .

Embedded words are okay. (Like WILDe or even WILDerness.) Dual releases with other challenges are great.

I'll post my Wild Wild releases here AFTER I release them. Would anyone like to join me? No prizes, just for fun.

ETA: I've been told that one of the books being released just a few days later for World Book Night is "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed, so have amended the Challenge from one day to one week so WBN releasers can play too. (April 21st through April 27th)

PS - Please don't post your releases here until after they are actually done. Thanks.

I like it! I've been collecting a variety of books for release on the 21st - a mix of classics, children's books, favorites of mine, etc. - but adding some literal "wild" books to the mix sounds like fun.

I used the bookshelf-listing "in hands" option plus the "print bookshelf" option to get a single page of searchable text, and found that I currently have five books with "wild" in the title, subtitle, or author-name field (including two Oscar WILDe books - if embedded "wild"s are allowed). Might try looking up a few more before the day...

Don't know how many books will qualify, but I will try to find a few.

I'm in

I'll have to hunt for some though. Nothing on the availables stash....

I'm in...

because I think this is a great idea and I have 3 books in my stash. :)

If I can

find a few I will join (I don't think I have any on hand, but will re check)

Anyone remember the "Leap into the wild challenge"? Was a general release challenge (all books accepted) but books with "Wild" on it were extra points or something and was year-long.

the April Showers/Botanical challenge for mid-April/mid-May, the word "wildflowers" or "wild rose" will work for both her Challenge and this one, and can be a dual release for both.
