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 www.thelostbook.net. 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!)

Update: The Lost Book ran until July 2009 and is now finished - apart from lots of books like this one that are still travelling and finding new readers!

Reserved for the 2009 Bookcrossing Convention.

Journal Entry 6 by Pixette from Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Friday, April 17, 2009
Picked up at the Christchurch bookcrossing convention. I've never read "the lost world" so I thought such a classic might be of interest.

I'm a little puzzled by the lost book concept. I'll have to check it out online.

Journal Entry 7 by Pixette at Sydney, New South Wales Australia on Wednesday, April 27, 2011
I found this amongst my pile of books. The lost book scenario is a bit old now but the book itself is still valid.

Picked up from the local OBCZ. I've just read Arthur and George by Julian Barnes (another BC book) which is about Conan Doyle, so I'm currently quite curious to read some of his non-Sherlock Holmes work. Perfect timing!

Journal Entry 10 by wingJean-Solwing at Melbourne CBD, Victoria Australia on Thursday, July 21, 2011
I had a lot of fun reading this. It started by a total disbelief and a 'why I am reading this silly old-fashioned story', then I was hooked and could not put it down. Obviously the whole thing is a ridiculous concept but it didn't matter to me and I felt like being a kid again through reading it. Thanks for sharing this with me!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I will leave this book somewhere in the museum when I go to the Tutankhamon exhibition today after work. I had no luck with my previous releases at the Museum so I'm crossing my fingers for this one.
