Aileen and Watson, The Lost Book Welcome to The Lost Book!

The Lost Book is a collaborative adventure in storytelling. It's taking place online and anyone can join in. At its heart is an animated web series: the adventures of investigative journalist, and BookCrosser, Aileen Adler, who is trying to solve the crime of a missing book. Episode 4, the third of five episodes to be written by the public, was launched last month. It saw Scotswoman Aileen going undercover in New Zealand to listen in on the plans of evil genius Beryl Potts - watch the story so far. Right now we're animating episode 5 (which will be launched on Friday 19 June 2009) and working on the plot for episode 6 with help from all the visitors to the website.

Where the story goes next remains in your hands. You can suggest plot developments by visiting now. Each month between now and July the storylines will be pulled together into the next episode, animated and published online.

There are loads of ways you can get involved and it won't cost you anything. Please help us to write the story for the web series - make suggestions or vote on other people's ideas. You can also join our special guest writer Jasper Fforde and reconstruct a stolen book in our weekly microstory competition. You can enter our soundtrack competition by creating your own music for the web series. You can even produce your own animation.

And, you can read this book, tell us what you thought of it, give it away, and follow its journey.

The Lost Book is a partner project to the Edinburgh UNESCO City of Literature Trust's 2009 reading campaign, The Lost World Read 2009, which is using free books, online resources and events to get people reading The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle. The Lost World Read is the largest collaborative reading project ever seen in the UK. We're extending the reading campaign, thanks to the generosity of project sponsors Canongate, by giving away other free books throughout The Lost Book.

Life of Pi is that rare thing - a bestselling modern classic. It's a story about a boy, a boat, and a 450-pound Royal Bengal tiger. This is a brand new special edition (publication date 02 Jul 2009) for the worldwide Life Of Pi readalong that will be taking place in August 2009.

Journal Entry 6 by Jonniboi from Birmingham, West Midlands United Kingdom on Tuesday, July 07, 2009
I have just finished this book, but it really didn't appeal to me when I saw the cover, and the blurb (back of book) made it seem plain and boring. However, this wasn't the case inside, and I found that it was a really good interesting story, but what I loved the most about it was the Author's note as that captivated me straight away. I know you are probably wondering why I gave this a rating of 5, but the reason is, is that it really wasn't my sort of book; it didn't appeal for me, and found that I wasn't paying much attention to the story-line overall, this, needless to say, might not have been for me, but then again I am hard to please, so maybe this is a book for you! And I'm sure Rrrcaron will prefer it a lot more than I did, I shall send it to him when it's not predicted to rain, and when I have made completely sure I have enough money!
