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.
September: Animals—animals, birds, fish, reptiles, insects (e.g., dog, bug, pet), including mythical creatures. Also, books where the main character is an animal or books that are largely about animals, even without a theme word in the title
Examples: Dewey’s Nine Lives (about a cat), There’s a Seal in My Sleeping Bag, Dinosaur in a Haystack
I chose this theme for September to coincide with the annual You're Such an Animal release challenge (http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/533120). Any words acceptable for that challenge are good here too!
