August 2016 Ultimate Challenge Thread

Forum » Release Challenges | Refresh | Search

Sort Options 

Post your August 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.

August: Occupations—words that are job titles (interpreted broadly).

Examples: Maigret and the Burglar’s Wife, The Baker’s Apprentice, Interpreter of Maladies, Memoir of a Geisha

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.
