I am offering a release challenge again for 2013. No prizes, only bragging rights.

Rules:

1. Book must have been made into a movie
e.g., Gone with the Wind, by Margaret Mitchell
or book was based on a movie
e.g., Fantastic Voyage, by Isaac Asimov

Made-for-television movies and mini-series count, as well as motion pictures that were shown in theatres.

Except for mini-series, books that were made into television series or which are based on television series are not included in this challenge. (You can release these kinds of books in Davros-10's TV Series Release Challenge, http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/487456 .)

Books published in any year, and movies released in any year, are eligible.

2. All releases must be wild. Releases to OBCZs, thrift shops, or The Book Thing will be considered wild.

3. Releases that fit multiple release challenges are welcome.

4. After journaling your release, record it here with a link to your journal entry. Please mention in your release note that the book was released as part of this challenge.
