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.

 

In honor of Child Health Day on October 6, our cover should have a CHILD or CHILDREN on it. If you can tell that at least one of the people on the cover is under the age of 18, you have an acceptable cover.

Have fun.

Another idea - this was the first one I found that was not a biography (haven't released it yet): There's a picture of a 100 DEM bill on the cover, which itself includes a picture of 19th century musician Clara Schumann. Dollar bills would work fine as well, the people on those should all qualify as "famous"...

I don't suppose this sort of thing would work?

Still looking...

Several hundred books later: how about a sarcophagus?

http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTAwWDM3NQ==/z/f50AAOSwVFlUKr9P/$_57.JPG

Off to do more digging...I remember what I used when you had tombstones in a previous year, but I don't have a copy of that book now. Going to go look at what everyone else released for that week (2012: week 22).

 

I didn't think this would be difficult but I struggled to find these releases.
Both have drawings of English villages with churches and a few gravestones in the foreground.
Will be spending a few days in Singapore on way to India so will release these books tomorrow, on arrival to lighten my load

I did think this would be difficult but I didn't expect it to be virtually impossible.

I looked through about 1500 books by now and couldn't find one yet...

 

Going to go look at what everyone else released for that week (2012: week 22).

I just took a look myself - and found that 2012 week 22 also allowed the words "fallen", "grave" or "cemetary".

Well... I found one book now. It's in french language. Now I wonder where I could release a french book here...

Yes, that made it easier. This time Sec said pictures of gravestones..and didn't mention words, so I presume she means pictures only. That means we have fewer options: unfortunately just because the title has "grave"or "cemetery" in it doesn't mean it shows a gravestone on the cover. (And I'm *not* giving up my keeper copy of Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book, kindly brought back from England by a friend since I wanted the Chris Riddell artwork.)

But then, I always find pictures more challenging than words, since I have to actually LOOK at the covers to see if they qualify. :)

 

Well... I found one book now. It's in french language. Now I wonder where I could release a french book here...


Surely you have a french bakery there. Here, they are in every city.

Actually, we don't. :P

(We believe that french bread is just boring because they basically know only one type. A small german bakery stocks not less than twenty very different ones for every taste. The french make really good pastries, though.)

Anyway...there surely are appropriate release spots for books in french language in town (either at the university or at the french film festival that's about to start these days), but the people there would probably appreciate original french texts more than a french translation of an english thriller.

In other news, I've been to a "for free shop" today and looked through parts of the stock. Surprisingly, I found even two books quite fast there. One among the thrillers, the other one among the children's books. The R. L. Stine Fear Street books actually were a good place to start looking ;)

 

I don't suppose this sort of thing would work?Roadside Crosses: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9867342


I'll accept that. It's a kind of gravemarker and that's what I wanted. Granted the body is probably not there (probably that's where they found the body rather than where it is buried), but I'll accept it as a marker.

How convenient: This was book sale weekend, so I could comb through shelves and shelves of mysteries and horror looking for tombstones. Even so it wasn't easy to find them!

 

the _only_ reason I went used book shopping was to find a book for this week's challenge. The fact that I came home with 7 books is irrelevant. :p

At least I successfully found a book with tombstones on the cover: now I just have to register and release it!

Well, I did the same thing, found a tombstone rather quickly and came home with 5 books. Just can't resist the buy 4 get the 5th for free at Value Village.

I hope everything is okay.

 

Didn't you hear? The ghosts of Halloween scared the week away and all attempts to convince it to come back were without success so far. The authorities hope to recover normal time by next weekend.

 

No, I hadn't heard. Thanks for letting me know. The information is much appreciated.

 

I hope everything is okay.

Me too.

 

Shall we pick a topic and proceed until we hear from Secretariat? Any ideas? I might not be able to respond until later on today so go ahead and decide without me or maybe we will have heard from secretariat by then.

 

Shall we pick a topic and proceed until we hear from Secretariat?

Has anyone mailed Secretariat and asked? Maybe she just was too busy and forgot to post... wouldn't be the first time...

Yes, why don't you send a PM. And thanks for offering.

: )

 

I'm sorry if I worried you. An emergency cropped up on Friday evening and I raced out early Saturday morning to Los Angeles and have just gotten back. I was hoping that you weren't frazzled by it and/or that you'd chosen your own topic. Since you were so nice to wait for me, we'll do an easy one -

Your cover should have a MAN or BOY on it.

Thanks for being so patient.

The most important thing is that you are O.K. You are always so prompt with your weekly posts so when it doesn't happen, we worry about you!

And of course the two books I released Saturday had NO people on the cover. :p

Hope your emergency was resolved successfully.

The season when we begin to have fall/winter weather is upon us, so our cover should have LIGHTNING on it.

Happy hunting.

Like a bolt of lightening from a thunderstorm? Or a ray of light like this cover http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12596146/

Nope, lightening from a thunderstorm.

 

Words and/or pix?

Sure, if you can find the word go for it.

The word "thunder" wouldn't count, would it?

(just because I just found a book with that word... haven't yet worked through most of my stock, though)

 

Lightning in winter?! Do you live in a part of the world that has a monsoon season rather than a snow season, perhaps?

Actually I do. It can, on occasion, be tropical here. We are just about to begin our "rainy" season. Given that we had less than 5" of rain last year, that takes a bit of imagination, but we certainly hope to have storms hitting us. We often get lightning (and in the last several years we often would get lightning but no rain), but rarely thunder.

OK - lightening bolts it is (although I don't have any of them at present - maybe there's at least one that came home with the two bags of mostly stock books yesterday)

 

Wishing you a prosperous rainy sason, then.
