Places of Worship challenge

Release a book in as many different places of worship as possible.
Who can score the highest?

Rules:

1. Be sensitive in your choice of book
2. The first release gives you 1 point. Releases in any other places of worship of the SAME denomination get you another 1 point per book released.
3.You keep scoring one point until you release in a place of worship of a DIFFERENT religion or denomination.
4.When you change denomination/ religion, your score goes up by one point.

This way, the greater the variety of places of worship you release at, the higher your score.

eg
Release at:
a local Church of England church= 1 point
another Church of England church = 1 point
a local synagogue =2 points
a mosque = 3 points
a local Quaker Meeting = 4 points
another Church of England Church = 1 point

Total: 12 points

Um, I assume outside of England, those Church of England are going to be harder to come by. Can we make that Christian church of our choice?

Sounds like a fun challenge. I have some ideas.

a certain day/week/month?

I've actually been debating releasing a whole series of books (The Mitford books by Jan Karon). I have 7 and thought of leaving one at a different church throughout my town, all on the same evening. It might be hard to let those books go though... Even though I am not religious, I really like those books!

Mitford

Oh that would be cool if you left one at an Episcopal, one at a Baptist, one at a Presybetarian and (I forgot if there are any other church's mentioned in the books?)

I might have to take up that idea as I have some Mitford books I need to find a place to release.

I was just using it as an example! Think 'Episcopalian'.

What I was trying to say is I think there is difference enough between the Christian denominations to class each new version as an-extra-pointed visit.

For instance Baptists and Episcopalians are both Anglican Christian denominations but they are still pretty different.

I was thinking of having it as an on-going challenge, but maybe I should give an extra 10 points for completing the challenge in your own time-frame.

Therefore you only get the 10 points if you manage to release x amount of books in y time-frame. You choose the numbers but once you've set your targets, you only get the 10 points if you reach them.

What do you think?
