Go find them. Bring books for the next visitors to find.
The small village besides the highway might keep some hidden gems of architecture, the minor road over the hills you always thought would just be a waste of time might show you a magnificient view you'll never see from the motorway. There's a train in the opposite direction as well, you know, and there are people living around that station with the funny name. There's that cycle trail around the corner - ever seen the castle it leads to? Well, you won't see it if you don't go looking.
The aim of this challenge is to go out, discover new places and - of course - spread the word.
To fulfil the challenge, you should try to release books in at least 52 different towns over the year (see next post about some guidelines what to call a town). This is one town per week in average, 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.
* The challenge runs all of 2013. Local time applies.
* You can join the challenge at any time, and also count books you released before joining as long as they were released in 2013.
* Wild, OBCZ and geocache releases count.
* Controlled releases and meetups 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. In case you used a generic zone or misplaced it in the release note, it's still the place where you actually left it.
* Geocaches count for the town where the box lies, also if the listing coordinates are somewhere else.
* 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.
