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.
September: Pets and farm animals—any animal that is kept as a pet or on a farm (e.g., dog, snake, emu, cow). Also, books where the main character is one of these animals or books that are largely about one of these animals, even without a theme word in the title. If a book is about a normally wild animal that is kept as a pet (e.g., A Lion Called Christian), that counts too. For this month, these animals pictured on the cover also count.
This theme coincides with the You’re Such an Animal Challenge: http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/555014.
Examples: Casper the Commuting Cat, To Say Nothing of the Dog, Alex and Me (about a parrot)
