The 2020 You're Such an Animal Release Challenge begins at 12:01 a.m. (your time) on September 1, 2020, and ends at 11:59 p.m. (your time) on October 4, 2020 (which is “World Animal Day”). This is the 16th 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). It's definitely not required to theme your releases, but it does make it more fun and challenging. This year there will be no prizes awarded. Frankly, I've gotten very bad about remembering to come back and award them, so I'm taking it off the table to save myself the embarrassment.

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. 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:

Angel
Devil
Dragon
Ghost
Vampire
Animal
Mammal
Beast
Hound
bait (because bait can be a fish or previously living animal)
creature
serpent
Fowl
Pet
Ass
Cattle
longhorn
bug
insect
Reptile
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:

gator
coon
Capricorn, Leo, Taurus (the Zodiac signs)
Prey
Wild
tom
monster
fiddler
groups (like gaggle of geese- - geese is ok, gaggle is <u>not</u>)

Wonderful. A virtual tour of Paris. Are the streets nearly empty or is France doing well with COVID response (unlike the horrible response of the US).
This month, Paris was empty, everyone in holydays and no tourists. The health situation is calm and we will remain cautious until the end of this shitty year. I would surely make fewer releases than usual, not easy to walk long masked.

 

Present !

so glad to see my old nemesis back again!

Oooooooooooo, I read alot of Stephen King and you don't know the meaning of haunt, OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO look out Elj, just kidding good to see you!

 

A friend (and BookCrosser) texted me yesterday, she was at a used book store and found a bunch of cheapish kid's books, asked did I need anything. After I told her what Release Challenges are current and upcoming, she apparently minioned me some kitty and puppy books. : )

Can't wait to get them from her. (Properly masked and careful, of course).

 

I haven't released any books for ages, so it'll make a change :)

I like how you can fit books behind signs. Where I live, our signs are all flat.

Hooray! I always look forward to your cemetery releases! (I may have mentioned this in the past, but in case I didn't - I stayed in a hotel overlooking the Montparnasse cemetery when I visited Paris some decades ago. Between the food, museums, cemeteries, and general being-in-Paris, I had a wonderful time, but have fond memories of that cemetery in particular, as I got to stroll through it every day on my way to and from my hotel. I recall being impressed at the number of cats who made their homes among the tombs...)

 

Hooray!

First of all, congrats on #65 going around for the 2nd time BUT

I had a heck of a time finding the embedded yOU. Bing and google didn't have a clue, with much diligence I finally found it, tnx! I'm off to find a ewe (lol) in my stacks

I had a heck of a time finding the embedded yOU. Bing and google didn't have a clue, with much diligence I finally found it, tnx!

It helps if you add "bird" to your search string.

Oo and ou (or more properly ‘ō‘ō and ‘ō‘ū) are Hawaiian birds. The ‘ō‘ō is sadly extinct.
