It's 2014: go ahead and post here! :D

Based on KateKintail's thread from 2012: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/474822
2013 thread here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/487403

Just because - no points, no stats other than what you choose to keep for yourself. I use it to keep me motivated to wild release regularly.

The goal is to average at least 3 wild releases every week: charity releases & LFLs, and OBCZs count. It's not a rule, just a guideline; if you're short one week you can always make it up another week.

Themed releases, photos, and multi-challenge releases are encouraged.

BookCrossers who are going to try this:

book-a-neer
booklady331
brezova
Genielady
glory-to-glory
hyphen8
jare
NancyNova
Nimrodiel
quietorchid
sha
spazcat
tchaikovsky
tomato68

Won't you keep us company?

Notes:

* My weeks will run Sunday through Saturday, but if you'd prefer to start & end your weeks on different days, feel free.
* I will start with a short week, Wednesday 1/1 to Saturday 1/4, but you don't have to do it that way. If you want to do Wednesday through Tuesday, that's fine too.

Good idea
Since KateKintail and I are doing the latest round of goals together and mine includes wild releasing 101 books (separate from those released at book festivals), that comes out to almost 2 a week in 2014. Surely if I am trying to release 3 a week I should at least be able to manage 2 a week, right?

Well, this was originally KateKintail's idea.. :)

 

I'm in again!

 

but with the big stash of availables from flut3girl (and the fact that I can mass release one week and skip the next), this should work.

Count me in!

 

 

The holidays are making me crazy busy but I'll keep trying!!!

 

Have lots to release.

 

Count me in. I haven't participated in a challenge since 2008 or 2009. But I remember how. ;)

 

This sounds like a ton of fun, and will definitely motivate me to wild-release some more. Sign me up, please :)

 

I fell short of sticking with challenges this year, but want to give it a go again next year!

 

 

I'm shooting for an average of 3 per week; I do count festival releases which helps a lot(!) but (breaking out my sketchy math research) am hoping for a mode & median of at least 3 as well.

I'm also *trying* to average at least 1 RABCK per week although I haven't done as well as I hoped for this year.

Oh, and as much as possible, I will take photos of my wild releases.

 

Remind me, hyphen8, my friend, if I forget!! LOL

Just call me little nag (even if I'm nowhere near as smart as Minerva). :p

And if you don't know what I mean, that's ok too...

 

How do you attach a photo to a release?

 

How do you attach a photo to a release?


The important thing is to know the location of the photo you're trying to upload - where is it on your computer?

As long as your photo's not too huge and it's on the computer you're using to do your journal entries, you should be able to click on the "upload journal picture" link at the bottom of your journal entry.

If a photo is too big the system might take a while to load it or you might get an error message. You may need to resize your photos specifically for BC, but I suggest you do that to a COPY, not to your original photo.

NOTE: I don't use a hand-held device (phone, tablet, etc.) to upload photos to BC, so I'm not sure how that works. Can someone else help?

 

duh - I never noticed that "upload photo" option.

Most of my releases aren't that interesting - the bookshelves at the train station (and, honestly, the heavier the hardback, the faster it moves - go figure) and the lil book box at the post office where the patrons like the romance/women's fiction paperbacks the best.

Most never check in again, but they definitely leave. I have to restock both places at least twice/month.

Add me
I want, no need, to do at least 3 Photos a week. So that's my goal, and this will help me keep it.

I try to post my release photos to the group on Flickr ( http://www.flickr.com/---/610310@N25/ ) - that helps keep me motivated when it comes to photos.

 

1) John Riley's Girl by Inglath Cooper http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/7040406/
2) The Snow Bride by Debbie Macomber http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11701951
3) McNally's Secret by Lawrence Sanders http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11771537/

 

Hopefully I can do it :-)

 

For this challenge, my week will normally run Sunday through Saturday, but this is a short week.

YTD: 8 wild releases

 

in the never judge a book challenge, this sounds easy and fun!

 

I'm off to a slow start. I found that I am out of BC labels and need to go to the store for an ink cartridge for my printer. I've been with family and had doctor appts and haven't gotten the ink yet.

I should catch up next week. I think of weeks running from Sunday morning through Saturday night. I should be able to get six out next week!

Happy Bookcrossing!

I chose to do Sunday through Saturday so that there would be a weekend day at the beginning and end of each week; it increases my opportunities to do wild releases. :)

Not like you can do anything about the weather, and this is supposed to be fun (and a bit challenging), not an *obligation*. It sounds like you did well to get two out. :s

Wow!

 

We are reorganizing our bookshelves and I don't have room for them all so I have to make some decisions. One of our goals this year is to organize even the closets and sort through things.

You can't do anything about the weather. I have been doing a lot of indoor releases myself.
Though one outdoor LFL release was fun, as there was snow on the ground, snow on top of the little free library, and someone had tumbled all the books inside into a huge mess. So I was standing trying to balance my tote bag, and hold books as I pulled them out and re-stacking them inside. Holding 10+ books in one arm while trying to objects with the other arm is not easy to do.

I managed not to drop anything in the snow which was a surprise. Especially as it started to snow while I was doing it.

I love the ice sculptures. Unless you can find good *indoor* spots, wild releasing has got to be a bigger challenge in the winter. Don't end up with your face stuck to the camera. :p

 

.......... Unless you can find good *indoor* spots, wild releasing has got to be a bigger challenge in the winter. .......


For good or bad, my primary two release spots are indoors, although one isn't as visible any more. The book shelf that some one dragged into the train station from the now-out-of-business thrift shop, was parked in front of the main heater for the ticket office. Someone dragged it over to the side, next to the ticket counter where it's not as visible. But at least we're getting heat in the building!

I haven't found any good outdoor release spots up here in Pa. I had several good ones when I lived in Florida (and it had nothing to do with the weather - there just were good parks and benches there).

 

 

For this challenge, my week runs Sunday through Saturday.
