September 2017 Ultimate Challenge release thread

Post your September 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.

September: Mail—words related to mail (e.g., letter, post, send, stamp). Also nonfiction collections of letters and epistolary novels (told through a series of letters), even without a theme word.

Examples: Dear Exile; The Letters of Vincent Van Gogh; Postcards from the Edge

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.
