The Lost Book: Interactive Reading -- Officially Launched!

January 8, 2009
Now here's a cool twist to reading: The Lost Book, a collaborative adventure in storytelling. It is an online animated series with a difference: the story will be written by you, me and everyone who wants to get involved. The first episode (jam-packed with clues) is live as of January 30, 2009 and where the story goes after that is up to all of us – it’s a collaborative adventure!

The Lost Book is part of The Lost World Read 2009, a reading campaign that celebrates Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s 150th birthday and Charles Darwin’s bicentenary. It's bringing people across the UK (and elsewhere) together to read a classic adventure tale of a lost plateau, discovery and dinosaurs - The Lost World.

BookCrossing is a big part of The Lost Book. From January 2009 onwards there will be release challenges, wild releases and bookrays linked to The Lost World. There'll even be some exclusive bookplates to download. If you'd like to get involved with The Lost Book, head over to the website at www.thelostbook.net or to the member article, or to the forum (or all three!) and start exploring.
