POST HERE: One Word Title Release Challenge in August

AUGUST

Start saving your books for this fun and easy challenge!

The concept of the "One Word" Challenge is to release books with a "one word" title. Sound easy? The OW Challenge will begin August 1st and run thru the end of the month. Let's see how many books with a "one word" title we can release!

This idea came to 300dogs while reading Sail by James Patterson. Books with just a one word title will count. No numbers, such as George Orwell's 1984. Books such as Sweetheart and Sandcastles are allowed since they are still just one word. Titles such as Kisser: A Stone Barrington Novel counts as the title is one word before the colon : Got it??

The book titles need to be One Word in YOUR language. They do NOT have to be English.

Wild releases and controlled releases will count the same! Multiple challenges are encouraged.

Let's have fun with this OW challenge!! Start saving books-August will be here before we know it!

You can release without joining ~~~ just release.

I've got some books saved. I usually try to make mine truly one word, so no subtitles.

I like that idea. I'll do that as well.

Then again...maybe I won't! After all, the idea is to move along as many books as possible.

I'm in!

Glad to see it's back

...I'll start saving them for August instead. :)

right now. Except next week I won't as I am going on a cruise and I release the books when I finish with them. It will still be July so I can't release One Word Title books.

my 26 year old nephew died yesterday and I will be flying up to my sister's house on Thursday or maybe Tuesday depending on the flights and my sister. Monday she and her husband will meet to make arrangements and plan the service with the pastor, so I will know more after that meeting. I will be gone for 9 days and may not be on the computer. Just use your best judgement if you have a question. If you think of us, please say a prayer. His friends are planning a candlelight vigil for him on August 5.

My thoughts and prayers are certainly with you and your loved ones at this sad time. What a tragedy to lose such a young person...and a dear family member as well. Travel safely. We'll be fine here. Take care.
Profile Image
Oh my goodness, I'm so so sorry. Take care, be safe, know our thoughts are with you, and don't worry about your challenge. Family is much more important.

Thank you for your kind words. I agree Family is much more important. Just wanted you to know why I don't answer.

So cool...all of those book being released in the "Schrank"! :D

P.S. I love practicing to read German. :)

Not all of them. Some were actually real wild releases. Also, several different "Schränke" ;)

For those without knowledge of German:

Schrank means locker, e.g. for clothes. In this case, it's a "Bücherschrank", i.e. a bookcase, which is the common term for a public bookshelf which has doors. Little Free Libraries would usually also be called so, but in Germany most public bookcases are much larger and put up by organizations, not private. There are about ten of them in reasonable bike range, and I wanted to empty my first box of One Word books as soon as possible so I decided to visit a few of them in the first days of August.

Packing for the next one now :)

Profile Image
Well, I didn't read through all of your 62 releases. Haha! I'm really impressed, though, with the number of your releases. I am so happy to have a Little Free Library of my own in which to do wild releases. The ones that don't move go to other local Bookcrossers in our monthly meet-ups.

My daughter was just in Germany (for the first time ever) this summer. She turned 30 in July and always refused to have anything to do with BookCrossing even though I've been an avid Bookcrosser since 2003. She traveled to four cities and lost the book I gave her to read (which was a reread for her). Would you believe it? It got caught at a hostel in Stuttgart! We both had a good laugh over that.

Well, actually I find it hard to believe - given that the books I released at Stuttgart yield a sub-average journal rate ;)
