Don't forget to order your supplies for this year's International BookCrossing Day (April 21)! The last day to order them is March 25, because we'll need time to get them to you before the big day arrives. And this year's labels were designed by Azuki and they're great. So don't miss out, get your orders in while you can!

January 2018 Ultimate Read and Release Challenge thread
Post your January 2018 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/23/548408.
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.
January: Home—types of homes (e.g., house, hut, flat, apartment), parts of homes (e.g., window, door, room, key), and words related to moving from one home to another (e.g., pack, truck, box).
Examples: The Buddha in the Attic, Room, Blackbird House
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.
Please use this one. I don't know what happened. THIS was the original thread, because I posted "Posted early this month!" right after creating the original post. And that was right after posting the year-long list of themes, which is also listed as 6 days ago, not one week ago.
3 Points...I hope, using "Creative License" for "COMBE" for a theme word, for the beautiful Combe House Hotel in the UK http://www.combehouse.co.uk. A Hotel is a type of Home for many these days, after losing everything to many different disasters, and/or loss of income due to job loss, or inability to work due to health issues...and there IS a photo of a house on the book's cover. ; ) DEFinitely points for a Registered TBR that has been read and moved along. ; ) Thanks for continuing to run this excellent challenge jumpingin!!! : D I'm trying to get back to and stay on track with my BC Reading and Releasing for 2018 and this might just be the ticket!!! ; D

I finished The Archaeology of HOME this morning, but I will count it, since I read the bulk of it in January, and since it would still be on Mt. TBR were it not for this challenge. http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/9773019/
