#COYER Winter Switch

Reading time 2 mins

COYER (clean out your e-reader) is a semi-annual challenge hosted by Berls and Michelle of Because Reading is better than real life and Stormi of Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My! I had so much fun participating in COYER Summer Reading that I am doing it again! This time the rules are a bit different.

The Basics

  • The challenge begins December 16th at 12am EST and ends March 9th at 11:59pm EST.
  • You must create a sign-up post anytime between now and January 20th on blog, goodreads, fb, google+, etc. Be sure to indicate if you’re doing regular COYER or The Switch. Link your sign-up to the linky below.
  • You can choose to do regular COYER – which is the same as The Strict – or COYER Switch.
  • Link your reviews to the linky that will be provided on the Kick-off Post.
  • There will be three grand prize winners – $10 gift card – one for the linky review list, and two for Switch participants.

There are actually two different ways to participate:

1) This is good old strict COYER. The rules:

  • Every book you read must be an eBook or audiobook.
  • Every book must be either free or less than $5.
  • No library books, borrowed books, or Kindle Unlimited.

2) COYER Switch

COYER Switch has 3 components: The Strict, The List, and The One with the Twist. If you participate in COYER Switch, you’ll do each component at different times. There will be three phases:

  • December 16 – January 12
  • January 13 – February 9
  • February 10 – March 9

You can choose to do the three components in any order you’d like, but you’ll do each component once.

Social Media

As always, they plan on bringing you lots of Social Media fun. Throughout the challenge, they’ll have games on the Facebook Group. They are also planning on bringing you some new games to mix in with the old fun you’ve come to love.

There will also be twitter parties. I hope to participate in at least one this time.

It's time for #COYER Winter Switch! Two ways to participate again, are you in? https://kissinbluekaren.com/coyer-winter-switch/ Click To Tweet

I am participating in COYER strict, which means I am only including books read in eBook format. This is almost cheating for me, since I only read from my Kindle anymore. I have so many books lined up already.

I will be linking up all my COYER books here, so check back for updates.

You can find all the details and sign up here.

Are you participating in the COYER Winter Switch? If so leave me a link so I can cheer you on!

    I’m so happy you’re participating again, Karen! So am I, and I’m dong the strict challenge, too. I read mostly on my kindle, but finding the cheaper books is what can make it a challenge for me 🙂
    Good luck reaching your goals!

      I am just so glad they let me read eARCs. I have a boatload of them already going in to May of 2018! I think I have plenty to read for this challenge.

    I’m also only doing The Strict. I also exclusively read from my Kindle, except for the books I buy at our book fairs.

    I probably should stick to the Strict–I have so many e-books to get through, especially review books. But I opted for the Switch. I think it will be fun either way. It has to be right? We’ll be reading! Good luck with the challenge, Karen! Happy reading!
