zbird's Clean Start for the 2017 New Year...it's all about SOAP!!! SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!! : D

In celebration of zbird's return to Bookcrossing http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/5/537430/8853490, and with her blessing...in her honor...I'll be hosting this Challenge that she created last year...FOR FUN!!! : D

Dozens of NEW WORDS have just been added to the list of this 2nd Annual Challenge...come join in!!! : D

It will run the full month of January and ANYTHING GOES!!! Any type of release is fine, embedded words are fine, be creative and have fun!!! Below is the list she created with everyone's input last year, combined with dozens of new words just added (in CAPS) for this year. No need to sign up, just post here whenever you please. ; )

Post your releases here...READY...SET...SOAP!!! : D

*********************************************************************************
*********************************************************************************
From zbird's Original Thread last year, with modifications added as needed:


Clean start for the new year so it's all about the soap! Jan 1 to Jan 31

We all like to start the new year off with a clean slate so I figured why not start a release challenge involving soap... how much cleaner can we get.

Any books with the word soap or names of soaps in the title and yes the author's name. Embedded words in the title, author's name, or across words also count, as well as any and all forms of release. We're going to be HAVING FUN while cleaning up!!! : D

NOTE: Words in CAPS are NEW for this 2nd Annual 2017 Challenge.

The program I need to use is only on the computer I rarely have access to, especially during inclement weather that doesn't allow for the Veteran I take care of to go fishing as often as he could!!! And while I am terribly behind on snail mail to my BC friends, I am trying to catch up...HOWEVER...I have only received a PM with an address from SqueakyChu. I wanted to be able to send all who participated a little something, so please PM me with your addresses when you have a chance. ; )
