The Be SENSIBLE Challenge - July, 2016 - any kind of releases - multiple Challenges encouraged.

Please do not just post a BCID link. Looking at a number is no fun. Also post the title (and author if that has the sense word) so we can enjoy seeing what books you've released, as well as the link.

Please don't post until after they are actually released. (Making release notes in advance is allowed).

(words of the five senses—which allow us to see, hear, smell, taste, feel—in the title or author's name)

Examples below:


The Sight of the Stars
Rugrats: Sight for Sore Eyes
Murder in Plain Sight
You Can't See a Dodo at the Zoo
The Cat Who Couldn't See in the Dark
Tunnel Vision: A V.I. Warshawski Novel


Time to Smell the Roses: A Hermux Tantamoq Adventure
Season to Taste: How I Lost My Sense of Smell and Found My Way
The Smell of the Night: An Inspector Montalbano Mystery,


The Hearing
Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry
Holler If You Hear Me: Searching for Tupac Shakur
Without a Sound
Blackwater Sound


A Taste for Death: An Adam Dalgliesh Novel
A Taste of Chicken Soup to Inspire a Woman's Soul
Mediterranean: A Taste of the Sun in Over 150 Recipes
Suddenly, the Cider Didn't Taste So Good: Adventures of a Game Warden in Maine


Touch of Texas
Touch and Sparkle: Baby Animals
The Highlander's Touch
Nutrition for Women, Second Edition: How Eating Right Can Help You Look and Feel Your Best
I Feel Orange Today
I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman

ETA: list of some words that are accepable for the Challenge:


Also embedded words are fine. Just let us know what they are, as I don't always notice them : )

If you have questions about whether other specific words work, ask in this thread.




You're welcome - helps to be on this side of the world :)


1. The Dog OBSERVED http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14040398/

What about scent? Like smell it is a verb, noun directly involved with the nose?


1. The Dog OBSERVED http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14040398/

Yes, scent is on the list of approved words. Thanks for joining in.



I'm glad to see that you joined. : )


I'm glad to see that you joined. : )

Thanks! It will just take a little more discipline by myself to see that the books are actually released before being added to this thread. That should keep me on my toes! ;)

I didn't think I'd like doing the release challenges, but I started doing them this year and find them really fun.


Yes, I've noticed that you have been enthusiastically joining in several.

Almost every book I release is for at least one Challenge. That's what makes it fun for me. I've got a gazillion books around the house (acquired an additional 26 big shopping bags and 4 boxes of books in the past few weeks, from 3 library sales and a friend) but they usually just sit here until a Challenge comes along that they fit. I've been tripping over bags and boxes all week. No room in any of my bookcases at the moment. I almost *never* release an Unchallenged book.

I'm glad you caught the bug too. : )

ETA: Have you checked out Never Judge a Book By Its Cover Yet? Fun because it changes every week.


Have you checked out Never Judge a Book By Its Cover Yet? Fun because it changes every week.

No...because I don't want to have to keep up with what the theme is for each week! That changes too often for me. I think what works best for me is just one monthly challenge with a fun theme. I tried to do two themes last month, but I didn't like that as much. I also think I want to stay away from the quarterly and yearly challenges as they go on for too long. I think that's why I'm going to try hard to do your challenge correctly...even if it messes with my journaling and releases. :D

Great releases! I'm enjoying reading the posts and especially the embedded words you are finding in title and author.

I am not out releasing as much as usual as my car died on July 2nd, so I'm car-less and only releasing when given a ride by a friend. (I hope again tonight).

this Challenge.

Only words of the five senses—which allow us to see, hear, smell, taste, feel are on the approved list. Talking isn't one of the five senses allowed. : (

ETA: I've done that too and had to take "talk" books back out of my pile for this Challenge when I realized later that they didn't fit.


OK - no problem :)

[For some reason I have more "ears" this time than anything else {wry grin}.]

I'm glad the rest of you keep posting the ebedded ones. I never thought of Shakespeare. I've got a few that I'll go grab off the shelf. And someone posted a Beverly Cleary. I would have missed that one too, if someone else hadn't posted first. (But since they did, I released one last night).

Thank you. I just registered a copy of Eclipse. Hadn't notice the eye there either. : )

I thought of that...but I've chosen not to spend money on that series, so there are no copies on my bookshelf, virtual or physical. So unless someone actually *gives* me one to give away, I won't have any. :p

I do have two books by authors named Meyer on my BC shelf (Carolyn & Deon), but neither is still with me.
