2016 Rules: WILD release books with WILD in the title or subtitle or author's or illustrator's name for one week, from International BookCrossing Day, on April 21st, 2016 through the 27th.

Embedded words are okay. (Like WILDe or even WILDerness.) Books like or or work.

Dual releases with other challenges are great. (For example, "Wildflowers" works for the 2016 April Showers/May Flowers wild-release challenge (4/15-5/15) by GoryDetails.)

Books released at OBCZs and LFLs are considered wild. Pictures don't count, just words.

Please don't just list the BCID. Post the title (and author or illustrator if that is what is wild) as well. Looking at a number isn't any fun. Seeing what books you've released (titles, authors) is fun!

PLEASE don't post planned releases here. Don't post until after they are actually done.

No prizes, just for fun. Join us!
