COYER Going Back to Basics Sign-Up!

Posted December 6, 2015 by @Angelized_1st in COYER Going Back to Basics, Reading Challenges / 0 Comments


COYER Back to Basics is a fun “Clean out your E-reads Challenge” hosted by Fantasy is More FunBecause Reading & Books, Movies, Reviews! Oh My!. The Challenge will run from December 19th to March 4th, and is a fantastic way to clean out your free or nearly free E-reads! Aside from cleaning out your e-reader, participants will get a chance to win a $10 Gift Card from Amazon or B&N. Three winners will get picked at the end and there will also be a lot of chances to win some really cool stuff throughout the challenge.

I’ve heard about this challenge, and was too busy this summer to participate. Or so I thought. So now that they’re doing it again, I’ve decided to go along for the ride and join up. This challenge is right up my alley since I’m addicted to clicking the buy button on my iPad, and have a slew of books I need to read. Hopefully, I’ll get loads of them read during my three-week winter vacation.

The Rules

  • Every book read must be in an electronic format – meaning E-Book or Audiobook. It’s okay to start a book before December 20th, you must be less than half way for it to count then review it during COYER.

  • The books must be FREE or NEARLY FREE! This includes library books, review books, tour books, NetGalley, Edelweiss, etc. What’s nearly free? No more than $5 for ebooks and no more than $16 for Audiobooks (or the equivalent in your currency).

  • 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 us know you’re committed to COYER, maybe share some goals, and help us spread the word. Not sure how to do your post? Check out this example from a previous COYER.

  • Link up!.Link that post (not just your blog homepage) to the linky below.

  • Review & Link Reviews! Your review may be on your blog, Goodreads, Shelfari, Booklikes, etc. Link the review to the Review Linky (we will share this December 19th). We will randomly pick three review links to win a $10 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. All links must be entered by March 5, 2015 at 11:59 PM EST.

  • Visit Each Other, Chat & Have Fun!

As of now I have no idea how many books I should pledge for the challenge. I’ve mostly completed my various reading challenges this year, but I have two left unfulfilled. Maybe I’ll finally read some of the books I have for those challenges and kill 2 (or 3) birds with one stone. Or maybe not. I don’t think I want to tie myself down to one kind of genre, or particular book. We’ll see!
