Post your June 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.

June: Sounds—things you can hear and words related to noise and hearing (e.g., crash, loud, listen, thunder, quiet, loud). This includes the names of things that normally make sound (bird, bell) and the word "ear."

Examples: Hard Laughter, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Silence of the Songbirds

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.

Q: How about thing that can make sounds, like "bird" or "trumpet"?
A: Yes, because these are related to sounds. Let's limit it to things that are known for making sound or things where making a sound is a normal property of the thing. For example, "book" wouldn't count even though a book CAN make a sound if you throw it against a wall or flip the pages quickly. But something like "bird" or "bell" or a musical instrument is fine.

Q: How about "ear"?
Yes, "ear" is fine!
