BC Challenges I'm participating in:
2008 Movie/TV Books Release Challenge - This is a good one for me, as I recently cleaned out my spare room and found a bunch of movie/TV tie-in novelizations.

Reading Challenges I'm participating in:
The 1% Well-Read Challenge
Book Awards II Challenge
A Midsummer Night's Challenge
These aren't BookCrossing challenges, but I plan on releasing the books I read for them through BookCrossing
