52 towns in 52 weeks challenge 2015

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel, read only one page."

(I don't feel very creative at the moment, so I'll just copy last year's text for now. Most important is that the thread is up in time, isn't it?)


Bookcrossing is about letting books travel. Travel with books, travel for books. Make this a world of travelling books.
Go where you never went before, and find the surprises waiting there for you. Leave a book to be the next visitors surprise.



What's this challenge?
----------------------

The goal of this challenge is to release books in at least 52 different towns throughout the year 2015. This is an average of one per week, but doesn't need to be one each week.
You're welcome to join also if you're sure you won't make the 52 - just try and make it as many as possible.


Some rules...
-------------

* You can join the challenge at any time, and also count books you released before joining as long as they were released in 2015.
* Wild, OBCZ and geocache releases count.
* Controlled releases and meetup handovers do not count.
* Public transport vehicles can't usually be assigned to one town because the vehicle will leave the city limits. They don't count, then. Just release another book at the station and you're fine ;)
* You need to release the books yourself at the place in question. You cannot release a book "to" some place, but only "at" some place. It's always the place where the book leaves YOUR hand which counts.
* Geocaches count for the town where the box lies, also if the listing coordinates are somewhere else.
* Of course you can visit the same places as in previous years again. New year, new challenge.
* Please include at least the following in your posts: Sequential number, country, state/province/region and name of the town, and a link to the books journal.
* Please post only one release for each town. If you release more than one book, choose one freely.
* Report as many releases as available in one posting, but don't add new towns by editing old postings because people won't notice there's something new then.
* If you like, you may also track catches.
* You're welcome to explore the release spot surroundings and report about your adventures along with the release.

Of course you are. My monthly charts always go by the date of the posting, so the september chart is going to include all releases _posted_ to the thread until September 30th 24:00 UTC. I already registered the ones until yesterday and checked them for obvious errors, but won't finish the chart before the month is over. An exception is December. Since that is the last chart of the year it should include all releases, also those which aren't posted before early January.

Have there been charts for July and August? I don't remember seeing any for the last few months. Or else I'm missing them as I scroll through the thread!

It's not a big deal but it's interesting to see how many books have been released and in which countries.

RE: Charts

No, there haven't been some yet - but there will be. Actually the data is collected and could be turned into a chart with a few keystrokes, but I decided to post them all at once together with the September chart.

For some reason I seem to have gone into professional procrastination mode over the summer - in any case, I had postponed doing the July chart until it was kind of too late. Then, with start of September I was on vacation for a week just the days when the August chart would have been done usually, and a few days after that my life was suddenly turned upside-down (positively but it kept me from doing many things that could easily be postponed).

While I am extremely grateful for your statistics and I in no way want to criticise you, I do want to point out that I have released books in 4 countries by the end of September: Canada, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Well, there can always be errors in the chart - after all, it's me who reads the threads and turns it into a list, I'm a human, and humans make errors.

I took a short look back and found that I missed the Netherlands at # 23-27, probably because they were surrounded by UK releases. This will be fixed in the October chart. Is everything else correct?
Profile Image
Yes, it is. And of course, you are only human and it is a herculan effort to read through all the releases and provide stats, so I definitely did not mean it as a criticism!

This was a lot of fun and got me out of the house and finding some great places to release books (and eat). I'm glad to be done now that the snow season has started! Also, back to my OBCZ and other regular release places - they've been a little neglected.

Profile Image
Congratulation bookhunter21. I'm a little surprised to read that your snow season has started. Winnipeg hasn't had any that has accumulated yet (although I'm sure it isn't too long now).
Profile Image
We have had only a trace so far. It's been very warm this year. But technically the season has started where, if it snows, it will stay. I think they call it the "continuous snow season."

We had over two inches of rain on Wednesday, so they kept telling us how much snow that would have been if it had been cold enough. But it wasn't. So it was rain. Today it is "seasonable" and sunny. But what if it would rain? And be cold?
Honestly, sometimes I think they have to invent weather news.

Thank you. And congratulations for releasing more than 52 yourself.

I actually had a three hour wait between planes in Denmark and a shorter wait in Norway. I am now kicking myself for not doing a release at each of those countries. I could have added to the country list. I did dash outside in Denmark and find three geocaches near the airport, but I should have released a book too.
