The awesome COYER challenge is back and with it my excitement is also on the seventh cloud. Hosted by Berls of Fantasy is More Fun, Stormi of Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My! and Michelle from Because Reading is More Fun, this is a challenge that challenges book lovers to read and review their Freebies or books bought below the rate of $2.99. These can also include the ARCs and books sent by authors and publishers. Are you like me who has over a thousand books laying in my kindle unread and this is the approximate count if I dont count the books lying everywhere in my room with my shelves already overflowing. I am an avid reader who cant live without hording books. So this challenge gives me a motivation to start on the books as yet unread and R&R them. What is better than reading your lovely books and also get chances to meet new book lovers as well as win cool prizes! I am in heaven. :)
In order to participate, you need to sign up either at Berl’s blog, or at Michelle’s blog or at Stormi's blog. And let me tell you the COYER challenge is a lot of fun! I have met some great bloggers thanks to past challenges, and I have also managed to read a lot of the e-books that had been hiding on my kindle for a while. There are mini-challenges, twitter-parties, link-ups and lots of great conversations, too. Of course, the COYER challenge does have some rules, here are the most important ones – you can find the full list in the official sign-up places with Michelle and Berls – in my mind:
You have to read e-books only for them to count towards your challenge. Both kindle/nook/kobo/pdf and other e-formats for reads are permitted, as are audiobooks.
The books have to be either free, or very cheap. The upper limit is $2.99.
Once you have read and reviewed a book, you can link to your review in the official link-ups, you don’t have to have a blog to participate, you can link to Goodreads, Booklikes or Leafmarks or any or all buying sites like Amazon, Flipkart as well as a personal blog.
My Winter COYER Goals are:
1) I will try and clean out as many books from my TBR as possible.
2) I will try and participate in the Twitter parties this time irrespective of the time gap.
3) I hope to meet and connect with new blogs and bloggers.
4) I hope to enjoy participating in the challenges and have fun.
