Coming in November: the E-less challenge.

As the title suggests, the challenge is to release books without the letter "E" in the title. In the past we used a points system and it's fine if you still want to do that, but prizes will just be awarded randomly because I won't have the time to check everyone's points.

Rules for the points (if you are so inclined):

1 point for a title with no E in it.
Bonus point for no E in subtitle.
Bonus point for no E in author's name.

No need to sign up, come 1 November just start posting your releases. Enjoy!

ETA: all releases count and please just start posting here on 1 November as I will not open another thread.

 

Or will controlled releases also count?

 

Or will controlled releases also count?


My guess is that controlled releases will be ok, based on last year's thread: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/500241

* All releases count (wild release, controlled release, OBCZ).


At least I *hope* so. :)

 

I've been saving for this.

 


 

Not all registered yet. My daughter got me 7 boxes of books from a used book store going out of business. They just gave them to her.

I have some put aside, but they still have to be read.

 

...but I'm looking forward to it. So far I only have a couple.

 

I'm in again!

 

This is a difficult challenge, depends what 's on the bookshelf.

 

put aside for this

 

I have quite a few of these saved up - looking forward to it!

Autoren ohne E

Oh, did I get it wrong? I thought the idea was to start off with an E-less title and when the authors name was E-less also that was a bonus point.

No, you did not get it wrong. The title CANNOT have an E in it, if the author name also has no E in it, you get a bonus point, but this challenge is first and foremost about the title.

 

Sorry, couple of clarification points:

The challenge is to release books of which the TITLE has no E in it. If the author name has no E in it, that is a bonus point, but the whole release is invalid if the title has an E in it. I know it's difficult to find titles with no E in it, but that's why it's a challenge, right? :-)

Also, the challenge does not start until 1 November, so only releases made from 1 to 30 November count. (ETA: I just saw you set the releases to happen on 1 November, so the timing is right, just not all the titles.)

 

Ok, dann habe ich es falsch verstanden, sorry. Es zählen nur die Titel ohne E.

Ok, dann werde ich die Liste nochmal überarbeiten.

No problem! You at least found SOME titles without an E, that's more than I have :-)).

This challenge is definitely harder with german books than with english ones* but nevermind. I'm not trying to beat any record, I'm just trying to have some fun ;)


* My statistics program found about 7% E-less books when run on large shelves with primarily german books, and about 10% on a large shelf with primarily english books.

 

book 1: Rain Man - Leonore Fleisher
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12575909

book 2: Animals - John Skipp
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/10464858
(that was a catch before I could write my release note :-)

book 3: Play it again - Stephen H. Bogart
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12855864

book 4: Fataal - Robin Cook
http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/12903556

book 5: Solar - Ian McEwan

And that 's all I have :-(

Texas has an E in it unfortunately.

 

Thank you for catching that! It slipped by me. Those E's do that! I shall erase it.
