Welcome to The Lost World Read 2009!

You’ve got hold of a book that is part of the UK’s largest reading campaign. We’re celebrating Arthur Conan Doyle’s 150th birthday and Charles Darwin’s bicentenary by bringing people across the UK together to read a classic adventure tale of a lost plateau, discovery and dinosaurs - The Lost World.

Investigative journalist Ed Malone joins a band of explorers sent to South America to prove that deep in the jungle there is a forgotten world where dinosaurs and other prehistoric animals still survive. What do they find - and will they make it home to tell the tale? It's the first Conan Doyle story featuring the larger-than-life Professor Challenger.

And, 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 21st century investigative journalist Aileen Adler.

There are loads of ways you can get involved and it won’t cost you anything. You can help us to write the story for the web series. You can join our special guest writer Jasper Fforde to 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 produce your own animation.

And, you can read this book, tell us what you thought of it, give it away, and follow its journey. So join in, wherever you are, and have fun!

(Oh, and sometimes you’ll need a password to get into sections of Only people with a copy of this book will have the password, so these areas will be exclusive to you. The password is: the last word on page 150 of this book. Don’t forget!)

This book is going to travel to Jare in the USA, then to Bookworm-lady in Madrid. When Bookworm-lady's finished reading the book will be wild released.

If you've picked it up - welcome to BookCrossing! I hope you enjoy The Lost World and then pass it on to continue its journey. It'd be great to find out where it has travelled to and read your review. You can stay completely anonymous if you prefer, or you can join BookCrossing (it's free) if you'd like to take part in this booklovers' community.

Book arrived safe and sound in Albuquerque today, thanks for sharing it! It has been many years since I have read this (and even then I don't think it was more than just excerpts), so I'm looking forward to reading and then passing on to Spain!

Wow! I am impressed!
Received the book (thanks, Jare, for passing it on!) with bookbands, postcards and stickers.
I will be glad to read it (it will be the first time for me, mind you!) and then finding another good home for it!
Thanks for sharing, and good luck with this project!

Currently reading it; will wild release when I finish.

Journal Entry 9 by wingBookworm-ladywing from Madrid, Madrid Spain on Monday, June 29, 2009
What an amazing book!
Its style is modern and fresh; it could have been written yesterday, instead of back in 1912.
I loved the narrator character! A quote describing his feelings about love:
"My instincts are all against a woman being too frank and at her ease with me. It is no compliment to a man. Where the real sex feeling begins, timidity and distrust are its companions, heritage from old wicked days when love and violence went often hand in hand. The bent head, the averted eye, the faltering voice, the wincing figure... these, and not the unshrinking gaze and frank reply, are the true signals of passion."
Good old days!
It is a very interesting read, and I highly recommend it.
I will wild release, in order to keep with the Anniversary Celebrations.
Thanks for sharing this one!


Será liberado mañana, alrededor de las 18 hs, en la estantería de Bookcrossing.
¡Buena caza!
