April 2016 Ultimate Challenge Thread

Post your April reads and releases here. Please include the points for the post and your total points so far.

This challenge is for readers and/or releasers. Join in at any time! The themes and guidelines can be found here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/526594.

Each book can earn up to three points:

Read = 1 point. All books count, including registered books, audiobooks, e-books, library books and non-registered books.

Release = 1 point. Books must be registered. Both wild and controlled releases count and you can count releases from other challenges.

Theme = 1 point. If the book you read and/or release fits the monthly theme, you get another point. Each book can receive a theme point only once. Embedded words are allowed, and theme words can occur in the title or in the author’s name.

April: Gardening—words related to gardens and plants, including names of flowers, trees, fruits and vegetables (e.g., dig, spade, rose).

Examples: Spadework, Cold Sassy Tree, Brunswick Gardens

Be creative, and if you have any questions, please post here or pm me. If I haven't answered your question in the thread, please do pm me. I don't get to check the forum very often.

Fitting Words?

I had a couple books set aside for April because I thought they would fit, but I will double check. One has the word SUN and one has the word EARTH, two things that I find to be essential for plant life. Are those okay?

Yes, these are both fine!
