Amy (bookczuk) | 97 comments Just want to post invitations to folks to join in two upcoming challenges and to remind about another.

First of all, the ongoing Never Judge a Book by its Cover (NJABBIC), which has thankfully lost it's (yes, that's a joke) extraneous apostrophe, is now being hosted by our own GoodReader Secretariat (though she has another name here.) I have stayed clear of this challenge in the past, but as I release so many books, I decided to give it a try and am quite enjoying it. http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/...

BCinDC is hosting a release in memory of young N-R-Jyzer, daughter of ResQGeek, who was killed while riding her bike last fall. http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/... The release is on what would have been her birthday, and there are suggestions for themed books at the above link. (It ties in nicely with some other challenges, such as the Valentine Challenge (http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/...).

Finally, I'm again hosting the Wine + Food + BookCrossing Challenge in March. Any way you can theme a book to Food/drink/eating/cooking or anything related is acceptable. The main purpose is to have fun and release books. You all are welcome to join in and can read more here:

Cathy (cathepsut) The challenge for March sounds doable. I'll have to see how my reading goes. I'm alraedy 1 book behind on my 50-books-in-2011-challenge, but I suppose I could combine the two! I'm a sucker for food...

I could read and release this... My Life in France by Julia Child or this... Two for the Dough (Stephanie Plum, #2) by Janet Evanovich or this... The Subtle Knife (His Dark Materials, #2) by Philip Pullman or this... Le Tour Gourmand - Ein kulinarisches Reisetagebuch von Bad Ischl bis Peking by Christoph Wagner .

They are all currently on my shelf and it would be more fun like this than to simply work through my TBR pile...

Hi Cathy....I would love to "catch" the Julia Child book. Are you open to a postal swap...or is that contrary to the conditions of the challenge. The books I have to offer are :

Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterson

Blackberry Wine by Joanne Harris

Five Quarters of the Orange by Joanne Harris

I'm willing to mail from Canada

Judy (judygreeneyes) | 144 comments I'm doing the NJABBIC challenge again, maybe my 3rd year, not sure. I really enjoy the weekly challenge of it. Although I have to go digging for something to satisfy Secretariat's theme for this week, aarrggghh :)

I have three bookrays/rings posted if anyone is interested:
All are international:
"Sexing the Cherry" by Jeanette Winterson, continuing a long ring started by FreePages in Australia:

"Songs of the Humpback Whale" by Jodi Picoult
http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/20/...
"The Line of Beauty" by Alan Hollinghurst
