The special theme for this year is poetry. Some children's books are written in verse so they count but if you don't have any books that fit the special theme do not despair as there are many opportunities to win prizes. See below.
Here are the rules for the challenge:
1. Books written by Canadian citizens or landed immigrants count.
2. Books set in Canada even if they are not written by Canadians count.
3. Books must be wild-released but I will allow OBCZ releases as well.
5. Anyone can join.
6. There will be prizes distributed as follows:
a) Prize for most books released in Canada
b) Prize for the most books released outside of Canada
c) Prize for best release location
d) Prize for most books reflecting the special theme released by one releaser
e) Prize drawn at random from the Canadian participants
f) Prize drawn at random from the non-Canadian participants
g) Prize drawn one month after end of challenge for best catch
h) Some just because prizes
I'm hoping that the extra day of releasing and two weekends will spur participants to release even more books.
Thanks to the amazing Ibis3 the chart of all the releases will be updated once a day. You can find it here:
