May 1, 2010 - May 1, 2011
Lydia of The Literary Lollipop is hosting her very first challenge, the Into the Wild Book Challenge. Here's what she says:
I will be hosting my first Challenge this spring. The “Into the Wild Bookcrossing Challenge” will be a little different from other Challenges because you are not required to read a specific genre or author. You will have to give some of your books away, releasing your recently reviewed novels “into the wild” for other readers to enjoy, for free! As I mentioned in one of my previous entries, Bookcrossing is a free resource for book lovers. When you sign up, the site allows you to assign Bookcrossing Identification Numbers (BCID) to a book you will be giving away in random public places (aka, releasing “into the wild”). The person who finds it has the option of “catching” the book on-line as well. It’s extremely fun to watch where your books end up over time. Of course, not everyone will “catch” your books. Perhaps they do not have access to internet. Regardless, it’s interesting to see what parts of the city, province or state your book ends up.
- Between May 1st 2010 and May 1st 2011, read any 3 novels (of any genre or author– although it must be fiction) and review it on your blog. Along with that review, post a picture of your recently reviewed book being “released into the wild”. Get creative! There are some fun ideas on the Bookcrossing website.
