Lifetime Release Challenge

This is my journal for the Lifetime Release Challenge that I have decided to join as of February 10, 2009. My aim is to send out at least one book to every country in the world. (And hopefully have it journaled.)

As an added bonus, for myself, I will also try to release a book in every province of my own country. However all of these books will still count as only one book for the country Belgium.

Thanks to charbono for starting this and to Wyando for maintaining the site and details! See around the world in 233 books and Lifetime Release Challenge for more information.

I have been sending out a couple of books before joining and will use these as a start for my first journals.

Rules:

  • The books I use will be either books I have registered, or books I have received from others.
  • For the challenge I will use books that I send out as RABCK's, trades, swaps.
  • I will also count personal wild releases: releases I have made myself. (Which might not get a Journal Entry.)
  • I will count bookrings and rays, but I will only count the first JE after myself.
