I'll go ahead and post this now: join in whenever you wish!

The goal of this challenge is to AVERAGE at least three wild releases every week: charity releases, public bookshelves, LFLs, and OBCZs all count as wild for this challenge. The number is a rule, just a guideline; if you're short one week you can always make it up another week. This is for fun, so don't get too worked up about it.

Just because - no points, no stats other than what you choose to keep for yourself. I use it to keep me motivated to wild release regularly, and I try to take photos of my releases when possible (those get posted to https://www.flickr.com/---/hyphen8 and https://www.flickr.com/---/610310@N25 ).

Themed releases (see goldenwattle's thread), photos, and multi-challenge releases are encouraged.

You?

Notes:

* My weeks will run Sunday through Saturday, but if you'd prefer to start & end your weeks on different days, feel free. For 2021, the first day of the year is a Friday, and I'll be starting my first "week" that day..so it will be a short one. If you choose to start on Saturday the 2nd or Sunday the 3rd that's fine.

Glad to have you!

none this week. The LFL's I release into locally were all packed full.

Well, that’s not entirely a bad thing, if it means other people are adding books. Welcome back to this challenge! :D

 

I think this is the only challenge I have been faithful to every year since it started eight years ago. It pushes me to get books out of the house. My TBR is still so full, I may have to go through it and cull some books unread.
