As this is a recurring theme, whenever I see suitable books I get them in anticipation. So using these two books today as not too keen to have them in the house.

Welcome to the challenge!!!

I’m at least the third hostess for this weekly challenge, which has been continuous for many, many years.

GUIDELINES AND RULES:

Each Saturday (or on occasion on Friday) a book cover is posted as the theme for the coming week. The object is to find books with the themed cover for the week and release them within the week. For instance, the week’s theme might be cover with a pen showing on the cover (modern or quill) or the word pen within the title of the book; or the colors yellow and pink showing on the cover; or authors named Christopher.

Sometimes we will have a “Mystery Namer” – someone other than me who will set up the challenge. Just PM me if you would like to be a “Mystery Namer” and let me know which week you would like to do so.

1) Saturday (in US and Canada) is the overlap day when either the previous week's cover can be released or the new cover can be released. FOR EUROPE, Sunday is the overlap day.

2) Both the front and the back of the book are considered “the cover,” so pictures on the back are acceptable.

3) Any kind of release is OK but only catches from wild releases will count.

4) Each person must keep track of their releases each week which must be posted here with a link to the JE. PLEASE DO NOT go back and edit a previous post and add more releases to it, but make a new post for releases of any given week.

5) If you wild release a book and it gets caught then you have a release counted and a catch counted. However, if the person who caught the book releases it and it gets caught again - that's not another catch for you since you didn't do the second release.

6) When you have a cover which could work for 2 consecutive weeks, then you must to decide which week to count it for as a release (remember that it’s only one book and can only be counted once).

7) Anyone is welcome to join this challenge at any time and you can participate as much as you like. You can begin on Week 1 or Week 31 or Week 51, whichever suits you.

IF YOU DON’T WISH TO BE A MYSTERY NAMER, YOU CAN SEND ME SUGGESTIONS FOR BOOK COVERS! I will periodically use them.

 

Sorry that I'm late reporting in. My WiFi crashed and I had to work with tech support to get it up again. Since we have a new year, our cover should have :

A title with any of the following numbers in it: 2, 0, 1, or 8. Arabic, Roman, or in text are acceptable.

Have a great weekend.

I don't have a problem writing the date on things. My problem is realizing that so many years have passed since we worried about our computers dealing with the new decade.

Happy weekend.

Ouch. There was "snow", "winter scenes" and the quarter redo week recently... all good chances to have those books gone already. I wouldn't expect to have anything left that matches...

I don't have any left either. Not sure I can make it to a used book store and just used my last winter scene and snow for the 3rd quarter re-do. Oh well, I guess my life won't end if I miss a week. Will it?

I lucked out with a 25¢ kids book from the thrift shop. If it helps, I'm thinking the best bet for embedded words is SKI...

Thanks, I *never* would have thought of that. I'll have to go check my Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes pile for some skin. Although I did find a couple of winter sports at a used book store last night, since I wasn't really sure if it would kill me to miss a week!

ETA: I found one skin. Thanks again for the suggestion.

Ha, ha..I didn't think of that, since I don't have a HSKT pile. I was thinking of skill, skip, skim..is there a novelization of The Big Lebowski?

Better to be safe, when possible, right? ;)

Wouldn't help for me because I prefer not to use the "embedded words" option ;-)

Being sick all week and having my stock down to a long time low doesn't help either. I had been quite eager with releasing away stuff through december and early january because I usually get an offer for a large amount of free leftover books for pickup mid-january - so I wanted to free space in my basement. However, when the mail came in this week, I wasn't able to take it because I was sick. I hope the books will still be available on monday, but can't be sure (they definitely will be gone on tuesday evening if I haven't at least picked out and packed up my choices until then).

However... I had the feeling that the best chance to find something would be Pixi books - a huge series of tiny children's booklets quite famous in Germany, sold for 99ct each as impulse items in supermarkets, book stores and toy stores (I guess many are sold to avoid buying the kids sweets ;) ). I finally found a little box of unregistered copies which I had stored away somewhere some time ago to be processed later, and among them was a 1977 copy of "Petzi builds a sleigh". Wouldn't have registered this copy otherwise because it's IMHO a bit too battered, but seriously - it's just the back cover that really doesn't look good, after all ;)

Now I only have to get this little thing out of the house within of 31 hours...

 

and among them was a 1977 copy of "Petzi builds a sleigh".


Great!! Hope you feel better soon.

I know, but I was thinking of slt. Besides, I presume it would be different in German anyway.

...among them was a 1977 copy of "Petzi builds a sleigh".

Nice! Hope you're feeling better so you can get out & release it. :)

Actually, the german word for "ski" is "Ski". Note the difference ;-)

In case someone tells you it would be spelled "Schi", be assured that this spelling might be found in schoolbooks and dictionaries, and might even have been made official and taught to children, but I have never seen it being used out in the wild...

...among them was a 1977 copy of "Petzi builds a sleigh".

Nice! Hope you're feeling better so you can get out & release it. :)

More or less. I decided for the fast and easy option: Walk over to nearest public bookshelf and drop it off.

A few years ago I printed green ballycumbers for a while... what had happened was that somewhere in the cartridge there must have been a leak in the ink pipes, causing some blue ink to mix in with the yellow ink.

Since I continued to have problems with the color printing in my ancient printer and the color cartridges are effectively much more expensive than the black cartridges anyway, I'm now printing everything in grayscale for several years. For outside labels placed on the cover, I use bright yellow paper instead, which is more eye catching than the yellow print had been anyway.

What a good idea. I wonder if that would save me money. Thanks.

The "problem" is that there aren't any affordable self-adhesive yellow inkjet/laser labels on the market. I couldn't find anything else but expensive brands in small packages, going for about 0.50 up to 1 € per A4 sheet. For comparison: I pay about 7 € for a 100-pack of white self-adhesive labels in A4 (good quality).

However, using the self-adhesive inkjet labels on the outside of the books turned out not so much of a good idea anyway: They seem to attract dirt. If such a book is haunting the boxes and shelves for a while, the labels often look just filthy.

So I resigned to using the yellow standard paper (non-sticky), cutting them myself, and fixing the paper pieces with strips of transparent adhesive foil. My outside labels are rather small, no more than 65x35 mm but usually less, so a standard 50mm (2") wide parcel tape roll does the job. Price tags: 9 € for a 500-pack of A4 paper in intense yellow (cheaper brands I tried came with poor printing results), 2 € for a 66m/50mm roll of tape.

My supplier for the latter two is a local family-owned office market mostly known for high-end office furniture - people often have a hard time to believe me that this shop often sells better quality for less money than the nation-wide chains, online shops or even Aldi and Lidl... really, they rather suggest that I must have miscalculated the price per sheet than accepting that envelopes or labels at Aldi are simply overpriced ;)

I end up putting clear packing tape over all my labels anyway, so maybe they would work for me...

Yeah, that's basically the point. Because the self-adhesive labels attract dirt when put on the outside of the book, you need to put protective foil (i.e. parcel tape) over them. If you need to use tape anyway, you don't need the (small) labels to be self-adhesive.

In other news I was able to secure eight banana boxes of free books yesterday. Still have to subsequently get them home (two boxes at a time on the bike trailer) but I prefer to do that during dry weather as waterproofing the boxes on the trailer is a bit difficult.

This will make many of those romance covers good. Have a good weekend.

Going by what you've done in the past, I'm presuming humans only? For example, I have a boy hugging a dog: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14910714

Also, couples only? I have a family with their arms around each other: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14910713

Otherwise, it's off to the used book store for me...

(Note: I'll be releasing both of those books soon no matter what; if I can count them for this challenge, I will. If not, then not.)

So our cover should have a picture from history - any period -such as Hitler giving one of his horrifying speeches, peace marches in the 60's or the peace marches of Ghandi, a civil war battle (any civil war), etc. Also, I will allow the words heritage or history in the title of the book.

Have a nice weekend.

Always nice to have you with us.

 

I can't recall from the past how you treated a book with two authors, one alliterative, one not: "by Kelly Oriard, Callie Christensen"

Would you allow this?

Yes, one author is alliterative, so you're covered.
