Book titles must contain words that refer to time measurement: second, minute, hour, day, year, time, eon, decade, Christmas, century, millennium, a.m. (or am), moon, etc.
Here is a link to the list of approved words (PLEASE check the list BEFORE asking if a word is acceptable. And if a word is NOT on the list, please check to make sure it is acceptable BEFORE releasing): http://home.comcast.net/---/Tick%20Tock%20words%2092313.jpg (if the list loads small, click on it once it loads and it should magnify)
The following eras of time will also be acceptable: Civil War, Cold War, Depression, Industrial Revolution, Jurassic, Renaissance, Reformation, World War I, World War II. However, in order for them to be acceptable, the entire phrase must be present. For example, the phrase "civil war" would be acceptable but the worlds civil and war by themselves would not count. There may be other periods of time (those on the geological time scale come to mind), but PLEASE ask about them before releasing to make sure they are acceptable.
A number alone is NOT acceptable, as in "Four Blind Mice." Plurals are acceptable. Embedded words are acceptable ("rAMifications", “Red Badge Of CourAGE”). Non-English language books are fine as long as the time reference is in the same language as the book. A.M., P.M and A.D. are fine in any language.
Ordinal numbers first through thirty-first may be used either spelled out (third, fourteenth, etc) or in number/suffix form (3rd, 14th, etc), but if you use the number/suffix form the suffix MUST be present (6th, not 6). Please ask if you have questions about this rule.
Books must be released between midnight (your time) on Wednesday, October 1 and midnight (your time) on Friday, October 31st. Wild or controlled releases are OK but please only post wild catches. OBCZ releases count as wild releases. Dual releases with other challenges are fine.
When you record your releases, PLEASE number each book and include the link and title of the book. Keeping a running total in your subject line would also be helpful. Please do NOT edit old posts to add books, make new posts each time.
Prizes: Two random participants will be chosen and given wings.
Good Luck and Good Releasing!
NOTE: My DH broke his femur a couple of weekends ago, and with three kids I am a bit run ragged until he is more mobile. I will check the thread for questions, but please don't be mad if I don't get back right away. Thanks!
