March 2018 Ultimate Read and Release Challenge

Post your March 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.

March: Colours—names of colours and related words (e.g., hue, shade, rainbow). Some colours are included in this month’s Celebrate the Irish Challenge, if you’re participating in that one too. See this year’s post here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/550366.

Examples: A Beautiful Blue Death, Shades of Earl Grey, Red Sky at Morning

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.
