Post your November 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.

November: All the world’s a stage—words related to performances and shows (e.g., theatre, costume, play, music, magic, set, film). Also, books that are based on or have been turned into movies, plays, or TV shows; biographies of performers; and books where the main character is a performer, even without a theme word in the title.

Examples: Orange Is the New Black (book turned into a TV series), Dancing in a Distant Place, The Colour of Magic

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.

Would you also accept radio?

I have a book of Lake Wobegon Stories, as on the NPR show A Prairie Home Companion.

And one of stories from the NPR show Car Talk guys.

 

Yes, absolutely!

Also, I loved Car Talk.
