It's COYER Time Again.

So I failed epically failed at the last round of COYER - as in I gave up (and is epically actually a word?) I'm not sure how this round is going to go but I do look forward to the social media posts and things so I at least wanted to give it a good college try.  The gang always has so much fun I don't want to miss out on.  So here's how it is working this time around and for more information, check out the blog.

COYER rules:

  1. Read Your E-Reads! Every book you read MUST be in an electronic format – meaning E-Book or Audiobook. It’s okay to start a book before December 1st, you must be less than half way for it to count then review it during COYER.
  2. The books must be FREE or NEARLY FREE! This includes review books, tour books, NetGalley, Edelweiss, etc. What’s nearly free? No more than $2 for eBooks and no more than $5 for Audiobooks (or the equivalent in your currency). This does NOT include library books, borrowed books, or Kindle Unlimited books.
  3. Announce your participation! This can be a blog post (or if you don’t have a blog – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Booklikes, Goodreads, Shelfari, etc.) If you want to list books you would like to read, that’s great, but not necessary. The point is to let everyone know you’re committed to COYER, maybe share some goals, and help spread the word. Not sure how to do your post? Check out this example from a previous COYER.
  4. Link up! Link that post (not just your blog homepage) to the linky below. (remember if you signed up before our site crashed we need you to sign up again)
  5. Review & Link Reviews! Your review may be on your blog, Goodreads, Shelfari, Booklikes, etc. Link the review to the Review Linky (which will be available on the kick off post on December 1st).
  6. We are giving away (2) $10 Gift Cards. One is for the review link and the other is for a goody type of giveaway. It will be for readathons, participating, visiting, etc. We will have all the info on the kick off post.
  7. Visit Each Other, Chat & Have Fun!


We will have a few read-a-thons this COYER, where we go to summer rules... as in anything goes. Price and format won't matter during those read-a-thons. We'll have the exact dates for the read-a-thons on the Kick off Post December 1st. 

Social Media

If you haven't yet, be sure to join our Facebook group! As always we'll have daily games and questions to chat about. We'll also have 4 twitter parties this time around, dates will be announced on the Kick Off Post. Be sure to follow #COYER for reading updates and for the party! We'll have our month long Instagram challenge in February, so watch for that photo announcement in January! 


  1. I'm doing my own ebook challenge through all of next year to just clear as many as I can. I'm certainly hoping for DNFs to speed things up!

    Good luck with your challenge!

  2. I've never joined this challenge but everyone always talks about it and has so much fun. Maybe one of these days!

    1. The interaction with others is always my favorite part. And not everything I read fits but since it's 3 months long, it all works out in the end.

  3. oh man I SO should do this challenge. I'm so behind! Good luck Barb!

  4. One of these days I need to join this challenge. Have a great time with it.

  5. This sounds like a great event, not sure why I've not heard of it - well, I live under a rock, so there is that.
    Good luck this year.
    Lynn :D

  6. This year I did my own challenge to clear my eBooks. And I'll be doing that next year too. So many still to go. Good luck with COYER!
