Book Club Fun

Check out this video made by members of a book club that’s currently reading Book Scavenger! They hid books in their community and around their school and explain how to play the game. Great job, Book Scavengers!

 

Book Scavenger shirts for sale! Limited time only.

From now until November 4, 2019, I’m opening up sales of Book Scavenger shirts (youth and adult sizes) to United States mailing addresses. Once I have the total amount of shirts, I’ll place a bulk order and when the shirts arrive, I’ll package and ship them to you. You can expect to receive your shirt mid/late November. Plenty of time if you plan to gift it to someone for the holidays! (And the shirt pairs nicely with a set of Book Scavenger books!)

Help Celebrate Book Scavenger’s Birthday!

Sunday, June 2, marks four years since Book Scavenger has been published!

Want to help celebrate Book Scavenger’s birthday? Here’s something easy you can do: Hide a book!

Any children’s book—it doesn’t have to be part of the Book Scavenger series. Chose a book you’d like to share with others!

Here’s what you do:

Once you’ve chosen the book you’d like to hide . . .

  1. Print out a game plate here.
  2. Get a tracking number for your book here.
  3. Write the tracking number on the game plate and secure that to your book.
  4. Put the book in a plastic bag to protect it.
  5. Pick a public hiding spot and hide your book.
  6. Submit a Hidden Book form.

 

That’s it! If your hiding spot is some place where people not playing the game might find the book, leave a friendly note asking for the book to be left alone unless they want to play the game. Something like this:

“Hi! This book is part of a game called Book Scavenger. Please leave me here if you don’t want to play the game. Someone will find me soon!”

 

When your hidden book post is on the Book Scavenger website, share it with others to celebrate Book Scavenger! Examples:

Happy birthday, Book Scavenger! To celebrate, I hid The Train of Lost Things by Ammi-Joan Paquette.

Book Scavenger is turning 4! To celebrate, I hid Jasmine Toguchi, Mochi Queen by Debbi Michiko Florence.

 

If a book is hidden near you, go see if you can find it! If you do, fill out a “Found a Book” form so we can update the Hidden Book post.

 

Also, if you’ll be in the San Francisco Bay Area on June 9, please come celebrate Book Scavenger in person at Books Inc. in Palo Alto at 2:30! There will be games like Pin the Cowlick on James, you can pose as Emily and James in a Book Scavenger photo booth, and there will be more fun and games too!

 

You’re Invited to a Party!
