Hi gang!

The The Challenge is on again for November 2017.

Release books with the word 'the' in the title (doesn't have to start with 'the', and can be in your language equivalent).

Post releases here and have fun!!!


I haven't set any aside but I can't imagine it will be hard to find many.


Good to see that you're doing this again. :D


Yes, all releases count :)


I'm sure I've got a few books around that'll fit the bill!


However, other challenges will have priority and it might take a while until my first list occurs here.


so I think I'll jump in again this year.


I'm always glad to reduce the amount of books in my house.


I was wondering if this was going to run again


I have a TON of books I'm trying to release...
