The 2019 You're Such an Animal Release Challenge begins at 12:01 a.m. (your time) on September 1, 2019, and ends at 11:59 p.m. (your time) on October 4, 2019 (which is “World Animal Day”). This is the 15th year for this challenge, and each year has been loads of fun.

It’s easy. Just WILD release at least 20 books where the name of the book has within it the name of some kind of animal (not human), insect, or reptile. Any once-living animal or mammal (except man) will do—cat, dog, chicken, wolf, tiger, monkey, insects, lizards, arachnids, birds, dinosaurs, creature, and beast are acceptable words. You can use the gender names of animals and the baby names animals, too: mare, stallion, pup, kitten, kitty, puppy, pony, kid, etc. I even allow mythical creatures (phoenix, griffin, mermaid, dragon, etc.) Books entitled “The Cat in the Hat,” “Along Came a Spider,” “The Mouse That Roared,” “The Monkey House” and “A Bird in the Hand” are all good. However, a book titled “Rin Tin Tin” doesn’t work because although it’s a story about a dog, it does not have the word “dog” in the title. Embedded words are also acceptable (i.e., KIDnapped, LASSie, The SHADe of the Moon). Though controlled releases are not allowed, releases to any official OBCZ is satisfactory because OBCZs are somewhat Wild in that you never know who will be picking up the books.

You may use foreign (non-English) titles—but the title must be translated into English when you put down the link. Translations must be as the author would have intended them (so if there is more than one meaning to a word and one of those meanings is an animal, it can only be used if the author would have intended it).

In the past, there have been members who have issued special challenges within the Animal Challenge, for instance, releasing only one book of each kind of animal or only books with the word cat in them, or you may wish to theme your releases (i.e., The Rats of NIMH released at a science lab). I’m not requiring any of these, but will take note of any extra releasing complexities in the challenge and will give extra credit for creativity and difficulty, so PLEASE be sure to let me know when you add pics of the books released or when you do themed releases. Wings will be awarded to top releasers at the completion of the contest.

Each link you give for your released books should look like this:

#6. Cat http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/3243651. (Themed release with pic)

It must tell me which number book you are releasing and the kind of animal. Credit is given only for number of books, not
number of animals released per title. If you release “The Wolf and the Dove” you get only one credit. Again, be sure to let me know if you’ve themed your releases, put pics of the release points, or done other things which I might give extra credit for. Come and join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

Here are more specific answers to some questions asked in the past:

The following are okay:

Release more than one copy of an animal book or duplicates of the same animal
animals of all sorts (mammals, fish, birds, bugs)
the gender of any of those animals (drake, mare, stallion)
Breeds: maltese, yorkshire, palomino, etc.

The following words are good:

bait (because bait can be a fish or previously living animal)
cootie (or louse)
slang (Kitty, Puss, Doggy, etc., but spelled correctly)
all the 'baby' animal names are acceptable (duckling, cygnet, pup etc...)
plural (ants, dogs, Appaloosas etc...)
Spellings must be correct (cat not Kat, lion not Lyon)
No abbreviations (alligator, not gator; dinosaur, not dino)
embedded animals are okay (harry pOTTER or clASS, etc- -
embedded animal has to fit the language. (so, German animal in a German title, etc.) -
embedded also has to be in ONE word, not across spaces.
embedded--can be in the subtitle (even if it doesn’t show in the original book title, be sure it is in your journal entry)
Readers' Digest or other book collections okay as long as one of the titles has an animal in it and the title is shown on the front (or spine) of the book must be in the title (not the author)
the animal has to match the language (so Spanish book must have a Spanish animal name)

The words below won't count:

Capricorn, Leo, Taurus (the Zodiac signs)
groups (like gaggle of geese- - geese is ok, gaggle is <u>not</u>)

List of Participants:



I am SOOOOO READY, and have SOOOOO many animals ready to release!!! 🙈🙉🙊🦁🦒🐴 THANK YOU for hosting again, Secretariat!!!😊🐶🐱🦝🐷🦎🐠🐢🐛🐜🦋🦅👻😇😈🐍

Though controlled releases are not allowed, releases to any official OBCZ is satisfactory because OBCZs are somewhat Wild in that you never know who will be picking up the books.
Will the same hold true for releases to LFLs, Secretariat?


Will the same hold true for releases to LFLs, Secretariat?

Definitely. One was put up about 2 months ago on a corner I pass every day and I've been meaning to drop by. Obviously, it needed animals to make me do it.

I think the LFL are close to being 100,000 yay, I love mine and have at least 6 more within a 1 mile radius!


I just found T.H. White's THE BOOK OF BEASTS, something I'd been unitentionally harboring. https://www.bookcrossing.com/journal/15155609. It's just the thing for this!

T. rex and the Crater of Doom

While it is an abbreviation, I believe it's a style commonly used for scientific names (H. sapiens, for instance).

As it happens, this particular title has an embedded "rat" in it anyway, but I figured I'd ask.


Count me in! It’s has been a while since I have participated and released books :)
