Welcome to the challenge!!!

I’m at least the third hostess for this weekly challenge, which has been continuous for many, many years.

GUIDELINES AND RULES:

Each Saturday a book cover is posted as the theme for the coming week. The object is to find books with the themed cover for the week and release them within the week. For instance, the week’s theme might be cover with a pen showing on the cover (modern or quill) or the word pen within the title of the book; or the colors yellow and pink showing on the cover; or authors named Christopher.

Sometimes we will have a “Mystery Namer” – someone other than me who will set up the challenge.

1) Saturday is overlap day when either the previous week's cover can be released or the new cover can be released. FOR EUROPE, Sunday is the overlap day.
2) Both the front and the back of the book are considered “the cover,” so pictures on the back are acceptable.
3) Any kind of release is OK but only catches from wild releases will count.
4) Each person must keep track of their releases each week which must be posted here with a link to the JE. PLEASE DO NOT go back and edit a previous post and add more releases to it, but make a new post for releases of any given week.
5) If you wild release a book and it gets caught then you have a release counted and a catch counted. However, if the person who caught the book releases it and it gets caught again - that's not another catch for you since you didn't do the second release.
6) When you have a cover which could work for 2 consecutive weeks, then you must to decide for which week to count it as a release (remember that it’s only one book and can only be counted once).
7) Anyone is welcome to join this challenge at any time and you can participate as much as you like. You can begin on Week 1 or Week 31 or Week 51, whatever suits you.

IF YOU DON’T WISH TO BE A MYSTERY NAMER, YOU CAN ALWAYS SEND ME SUGGESTIONS FOR BOOK COVERS! I will periodically use them.

Ok, let me go looking..

 

I must have burnt all my bridges, because I can't find a single one! What a pity!

tried to spread the assignments a bit. Since week 19 was by far the easiest one, and week 17 second, this means that a book which is valid for another week than these two is counted for the other one, and a book that's valid for weeks 17 and 19 is usually counted for week 17.

2. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11265626 Anne of Ingleside by L. M. Montgomery. (My copy has a different cover, which does have a bridge over a stream.)
Controlled release.

 

A challenge for all of us -- LAST names in the title of the book. (We did first names earlier this year.) Don't forget that there are those people who have names which are both first and last-type names: James, Ray, etc. Also, it might be a good time to check out the non-fiction books -- Hitler's Scientists, Roosevelt's War, Mao's Last Dancer, In the Footsteps of Churchill (those are from just one of my shelves [unfortunately all unread]). Good luck.

 

 

I think this is going to be an easy week. If we aren't insisting on the title actually being someone's real name, and allowing first names like James, Mao etc at last names, I don't think there would be too many books that don't have at least one word in the title that isn't someone somewhere's surname.

Looking in the local phone book I haven't found any books yet that don't when you use a word out of context as a last name/surname.

IMHO, the fact that there is someone on the world who uses the same letter sequence as a name doesn't make a word in itself a name. If we wanted to have a "free for all" week, it wouldn't really make sense to disguise it as "names". But then, this is just my opinion.

However, I will stick to actual names in the title.

 

That was my point. If you allow the use of a first name that can also be a last name, then any word that can also be used as a last name would also be allowed.

To be any sort of challenge the title would have to include an actual surname/last name of either a real person or a character in the book.

Do names in subtitles count, like "Snagged: A Regan REILLY Mystery"

Yes. Those who have been in my other release challenges can tell you that subtitles always are acceptable.

Originally intended this for the re-do of week 22 but I didn't get it registered & released in time.

As Davros-10 mentioned, there are a lot of given/first names that are also last/surnames, so that helps quite a bit.

When I walked by the second time the book was gone, so I was hoping for a journal entry. Now I'm dancing too..well, inside, anyway. :)

The famous Del Mar Race season began last Wednesday. In honor of Bing Crosby and Pat O'Brien and others who started it, our cover will be . . .

Pics of horses or the word Horse.

Good luck.

 

the word Horse.

What about other words for specific kind of horses, like pony, mare, stallion, foal and so on? I definitely have such books in stock, and I'm not sure all of them have a horse in the picture...

Sorry, only the word horse will do.

Well, so I'm lucky that the serious translations problems this decision would make were resolved by the fact that all questionable books had horses in the cover picture. Specifically there were several copies of one german classic: "Der Schimmelreiter" - in english: "The rider on the white horse". So while the english title is almost a direct translation, the translation is valid but the original title isn't. Reason is that in german we have a special word for white horses which english hasn't: "Schimmel".

Fun fact: It's the same word as for mold (like found on food gone bad).

It has made its way from Ithaca NY to Springfield MA. How, we do not know. I released it in a cafe that doesn't even exist any more.

 

What fun! It spent 5 years *between* journal entries... :p
