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 www.thelostbook.net 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.

One Moonlit Night is a classic originally published in Welsh in 1961. The Guardian's review of this new edition, published in January 2009, says "A welcome return for this Welsh short classic, first published in 1961 and translated by Philip Mitchell in prose which miraculously conveys the incantatory biblical and Celtic cadences of the original" - while The Independent suggests it's "an early precursor to The League of Gentlemen"!

So join in, wherever you are, and have fun!

Journal Entry 3 by feasulwen from Johannesburg, Gauteng South Africa on Wednesday, July 01, 2009
The book itself is rather strange, I haven't finished it yet. This is my first book I've found so the thrill of picking it up and realising it was a bookcrossing book is still running through me. Even though it is a promotional thing, I found it amongst some leaflets at Findhorn after watching the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (what a moving evening.) The book is linked to a whole online world, thelostbook.net, where people are creating an online book/story.

Anyway I plan to read this one, and then set it free when I get home to South Africa, so that the concept of setting books free can grow at home too, and then maybe oneday I'll find one there.
