The challenge starts at 12:01 am (your time) on Saturday June 22 and continue it until Monday July 1 at 12 midnight (your time). That will give us 10 full days of releasing!

Here are the rules for the challenge:

1. Books written by Canadian citizens or landed immigrants count.
2. Books set in Canada even if they are not written by Canadians count.
3. Books must be wild-released but I will allow OBCZ releases as well.
5. Anyone can join.
6. There will be prizes distributed as follows:
a) Prize for most books released in Canada
b) Prize for the most books released outside of Canada
c) Prize for best release location
d) Prize for most books reflecting the special theme released by one releaser
e) Prize drawn at random from the Canadian participants
f) Prize drawn at random from the non-Canadian participants
g) Prize drawn one month after end of challenge for best catch
h) Some just because prizes

The special theme for this year is books that are mysteries or thrillers. Remember, though, these books have to be written by a Canadian or take place in Canada.

Please indicate in your post if a release is for the special theme or if you have tried to do a themed release for a book and are trying for the best location prize. You MUST give the link for the release and if you can indicate in the subject line what day and the number of releases that will be a big help to me.

Have fun. If you have any questions you can pm me or post here and I will do my best to respond quickly.

2. Platinum Blues by William Deverell
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11258547

As I said in my release notes for the second book I believe Deverell's Needles was the first mystery written by a Canadian that I ever read so I thought it was appropriate to start off the challenge with one of his books. The other book is one I received last year as winner of the Sweepstakes. I held onto it because it fit the theme this year.

We've got 83 books out in the wild so far (well 8 of those are ones Pooker3 won in the sweepstakes but I know she'll get them out soon). I've uploaded this year's chart to Ibis3's site. Please check it to make sure I've got everything correct.

If you consider it a themed release then I consider it a themed release. And that's a good reminder for everyone that if you do a themed release then put something to that effect in your post.

That's not necessary varykino. I've put them on the chart already.

 

Thank you. The CLSC came to take out the staples today. My son will release some more books with in the next few days. I'm still not up for long walks or lugging a big bag of books around. Greenfield Park has a Canada Day Parade. In the past, I always made sure I was home for the parade. Then I discovered the Canada Day Challenge and I spent Canada Day in the Old Port or in Old Montreal. So I'll keep a few books to release in the park across the street from chez varykino.
My only regret was I only managed to eat in only one restaurant this challenge. The Lion of Burgundy on Notre Dame Street. The best fish and Chips of my life!

Well enjoy the parade varykino and take it easy so you can heal. Too bad about the small sampling of restaurants as I always look forward to those reviews too. I'll have to try to remember your recommendations for the next time I visit Montreal.

You had no control over what happened to the book after you released it. I got the release alert at the same time as the rest of the BC world. Being close by gave me an advantage but, by the time I got there, it could just as easily have been picked up by any passer-by. I just got lucky. :)

Not the runner of the release challenge, whose word is final and unchallenged, but I agree with Pooker3. Besides, gypsysmom has great books!

 

When I joined bookcrossing I often checked the go hunting pages. By the time I got there the book was gone. So it was karma. The book fairies wanted Pooker to have the book!

Catch #3
Monday Mourning which I released on Monday morning (natch) on the way into work has been caught and the finder joined and it sounds like the whole group is excited:
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11258551

Notice I'm calling it catch #3 since Pooker3 and quietorchid have made such compelling arguments about the book Pooker3 caught.

44. Life Skills by Marlis Wesseler http://www.BookCrossing.com/---/10142940
45. Places Far from Ellesmere by Aritha van Herk http://www.BookCrossing.com/---/9970574 - this one was caught before I could do the release notes! (will report catch in next post).

 

1. June 24 release - Snowball, Dragonfly, Jew by Stuart Ross http://www.BookCrossing.com/---/11506382 (This was a book I left to replace the one that I caught from gypsysmom. So, if I hadn't run out to catch her release I wouldn't have got this catch for me. Maybe I should follow her around while she does her releases. Haha!)
2. June 25 release - Conspiracy of Silence by Lisa Priest http://www.BookCrossing.com/---/11911094
3. June 25 release - Places Far from Ellesmere by Aritha van Herk http://www.BookCrossing.com/---/9970574

Wow, that's great. I saw the catch for Conspiracy of Silence last night on the sidebar but I didn't want to say anything because I thought you should be the one to mention it. I'm glad your book that you left in place of mine got caught. Maybe I should make another trip to Broadway. All those people eating at the food trucks need something to read right?

And I just realized that I was so excited about your catch that I didn't post my releases from yesterday. I'll go do that right now.

This is my entry for themed release:
51. I'm Not Wearing Pants: True Tales from Canadian Radio Gals by Kelsi Jordan http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10412523/


Wow, you Calgary BookCrossers sure don't let a massive flood get you down. Well done.

 

Correction to #38: No change in stats, just wrong Bachelor Brothers book

38: Bachelor brothers' bedside companion by Bill Richardson http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10179407

 

 

 

From the JE it sounds like BC is still giving problems. Nice that the finder persisted.

 

This might be the last update I get to do since I will be going away on a camping trip for the weekend. I am thrilled to see some lovely colour on the chart and we're only half way through. Also Fracula has taken over the lead from Pooker3 -- that little flood thing that happened isn't keeping Calgary BookCrossers down!

http://www.readerofthestack.com/---/canadaday.htm

Please let me know if there are any errors or omissions on the chart.

Happy releasing and Happy Canada Day everyone.

 

Please let me know if there are any errors or omissions on the chart.

Hi Gypsysmom - thanks for updating the chart. The only change for mine is that I've released two themed (mystery) books. Thanks.

So you know how I've been lamenting that, while I love my Little Free Library and literally hundreds of books come and go, hardly anyone ever journals the books they take? Well that's still the case. That is unless another BookCrosser comes along! Judysh came by yesterday and found a whole pile of books to her liking and she left a bunch too - all Canadian books! Gleeful happy dance ensued!

So here's my catches:
