2014 Never Judge a Book By It's Cover Release Challenge, 3rd Quarter

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. Just PM me if you would like to be a “Mystery Namer” and let me know which week you would like to do so.



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 which week to count it for 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 SEND ME SUGGESTIONS FOR BOOK COVERS! I will periodically use them.

 

Since today in the U.S. is Independence Day, we will celebrate by finding three colors on the cover -- RED, WHITE, and BLUE. The cover MUST have all three colors showing.

Happy July 4th to everyone wherever you may be.

Ok... I didn't just break my personal record of 268 releases for one NJABBIC week but vaporized it ;) This was actually a fun week - and my boxes haven't been as empty as just now for ages. Here's a summary, the lists are in the old second quarter thread.

week 14 (rhymes) : 6
week 15 (double letters): 117
week 16 (trees): 33
week 17 (flower names): 3
week 18 (numbers): 63
week 19 (three name authors): 17
week 20 (clouds): 21
week 21 (ascension): 9
week 22 (translated): 103
week 23 (male names): 49
week 24 (flags): 4
week 25 (name of contributor other than author): 18

Sum: 444 releases

Of these were:

200 controlled releases (includes two boxes sent off as donation for OBCZ, some wishlist books, some special wishes, and a good number of random books to fill up to the weight or size limit for the same postage level)

3 geocache releases (haven't been caching much recently)

7 meetup takeaways

175 releases in 1 OBCZ and 7 public bookshelves

59 true wild releases along the way

Another 31 books were released which don't count for the challenge, which makes a total of 475 books in one week. Call me crazy if you like.

 

Call me crazy if you like.



Okay!

Crazy and rather amazing!

I haven't counted mine yet. Haven't even done release notes for the last few days or so, too busy registering and actually going out to release them. (Everything got held up by two days of thunderstorms when I couldn't turn my computer on to register the books.)

But I'm betting you've got me beat, by quite a bit!

 

Fantastic! Definitely a releasing superstar. I don't know where you get the time or energy to do that many, but I certainly applaud your efforts.

 

Amazing number! Well done.

I took loads to a stall at a street fair last week, but not nearly this many.




 

I didn't come close to breaking your unbreakable record.

I spent almost the whole day catching up on release notes and I'm finally up to date. I don't have an official number yet for this week, as I'm also behind on posting, but it looks like I released (approximately) 296, based on a rough tally from my notes in my releases journal.

Now I have to get to work on posting to all the Challenges. I'm up to the middle of my June 12th releases there, so I'm behind by slightly over a month.

And I also never posted any releases from 3/15 through the end of May. I started over posting again as of June 1st, intending to keep it up daily (which never happened) and to eventually go back and post the older releases too.

Don't know if that will ever happen though, as I'm too busy registering and releasing new ones : )

 

You two are an inspiration to the rest of us. Where do you find the time AND energy.

Amazing, this is 2 catches now in the last month or so after none for probably years.
Both of them were caught in the city, I live in a coastal town and I get no response to my releasing here. Think the answer in to make the trip to the big smoke more often.
This is quite exciting for me

Congratulations! And not only a catch, but a new member. Very exciting.

 

In honor of Ocean Day on July 15, our cover should have fish or sea creatures or the words 'Ocean' or 'Sea." Amended to allow sea mammals (which, of course, are not fish).

(Sorry I'm a bit late -- had to take the car in and although I was there at 7:00 it took longer than I thought it would.)

Sec, how about pictures of the ocean or the names of sea creatures?

Nope. Although I had to raid my September Animal Challenge bag, I know there are lots of fish, lobster, etc. out there on covers. I will amend the list to allow sea mammals as I realize that many big sea creatures are mammals, not fish.

 

If you allow the word "ocean," may I assume that "sea" is also okay?

And will a mermaid count as a picture of a "fish or sea creature"?

Yes, I will allow Sea as well. Mermaids and other fantasy sea creatures or sea Gods are allowed as well (Percy Jackson is a favorite series for me -- can't diss Poseidon).

Yup, I amended my previous answer to you to allow them along with other fantasy sea creatures/gods.

Can't remember from when you used this theme previously: does the verb have to be in that form? Or would "walking", "jumped", etc. work? Also how active do they have to be? For instance: how about joke? Or die?!

those embedded words. I don't think I'd have thought of any of those.

You're an inspiration. I've got to go look my books over again.

Well, after the show you & ekorren have been putting on, I had to try to get a *few* more books released for the challenge. I can't compare with your numbers (either of you) but embedded words are always a fun challenge to find.

Would the book with the title "Bantam of the Opera" work, seeing as an opera is musical?

I think so. I really want anything that indicates music or musicians.

 

 

I can't pretend I understood what you mean with action verbs vs. non-action verbs or whatever. I just hope at least one of those will be ok.

However, my motivation was quite low for a number of reasons - one, after the releasing sprees of week 26 and 27 and some cycling competition which got me to do several rather long trips (on which I usually release at least one book in each village I come through) I'm running low on stock and have to fill up first, and I feel a slight BC-burnout.

Additionally, there's the celebration of arbitrary letter combinations in this thread. Each time this comes up, I feel alien enough in this group to consider dropping out, and each time the main reason why I continue is that I don't want to break such a long chain (and that I certainly like this challenge although it includes military "celebrations" and embedded words, which both are usually a no-go for me).

Whatever.
Here are a few books that might count.

http://bookcrossing.com/---/12601521
Corinna kann HELLSEHEN
Translation problem: There seems to be no such verb in english. Dictionary suggests "Corinna is a psychic" or "Corinna has the second sight". In german, there is a verb for seeing the future, as in a crystal ball or by reading tea leaves or whatever you can come up. You probably know what I mean.

Im Atemhaus LEBEN = LIVING in the breath house

http://bookcrossing.com/---/12598535
PROBIER es aus, Baby = TRY it out, Baby

http://bookcrossing.com/---/12780040 So FÄLLT's leichter
Another translation failure. Word by word it's "So it falls lighter". It actually means "It's easier this way".

You release so many it's no wonder you would have some burnout. I hope you had a great time with the cycling. Your verbs are find, especially given the challenges of translation.
