December 2017 Ultimate Release Challenge Thread

Post your December 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.

December: First names—Books (fiction or nonfiction, including biography) containing someone’s first name in the title. If the title contains a last name that can also be used for a first name (e.g., Scott), that counts. Also, baby name books and books with the word “name” in the title. For obvious reasons, author’s names can’t be counted this month. This theme coincides with the What’s in a Name? challenge. See this year’s post here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/546955.

Examples: The Riddle of St. Leonard’s; Typhoid Mary; The Divine Ryans

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.

Hello everyone! I am happy to keep hosting this challenge, but if anyone else would like to take over, that would be fine too.

Also reply here if you have any ideas for themes for 2018 or any other suggestions.

I haven't managed to keep track all year, but I wanted to see what I've actually read and released this year(um, last year!) because I only managed to finish reading 18 books (with another 15 half-read Ballycumbers). And I only went to two meetings so I didn't release as many as usual. Also, even though I always pick out books each month to match the themes, my reading gets pushed off topic by my book club's choices.

So, to cut a long story short, my sum total was 76 points. Checking back through my releases over the past year, I discovered that one of 'my' books had been released by another BCer in Bulgaria and another in the Ukraine, as well as in France and Sweden. Just in case anyone's interested, I'll post the books read and released in separate posts, but I'm afraid I'm way behind on my reviewing and many of them are only recorded on Goodreads and not yet registered as BC books or were library books or I intend to keep them for now. I do enjoy reordering my shelves to fit the monthly theme, so thank you for organising it, jumpingin.
