Post your April 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/23/537435.

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.

April: Directions—words related to directions: north, south, east, west, up, down, in, out, forward, back, backward, toward, away, here, there, near, far, on, off, to, from, fro.

Examples: East of Eden; Out of Africa; North Star Conspiracy

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.

Would "at" work? How about "around" or "through?" "Above?" "Below?" "Before?" "After?"

Thank you.


For direction, I think it works if you can refer to movement or a path of travelling. So yes to "around" and "through," but no to "at," which is more like placement than direction of travel.

I would also say no to "before " and "after" and "above" and "below." That might seem to contradict "on" and "off" but with those I was thinking of direction of movement for something like jumping (e.g., jumping on).

"The Martian" by Andy Weir


If someone asks, "Where are you?" and you say, "Here", it is a direction, at least in Finnish. How about English? Or if you say, "Go there" - I understand you're meaning "Go that direction". But am I right or wrong?



So it seems, thanks for telling it. I've copied the original list and haven't read this thread like I should have.


I added them to the post after you asked the question. Sorry for any confusion :)
