I can BARELY contain my excitement right now. I’ve been waiting for COYER Winter Edition since we finished up the summer challenge. I did so well in the last two rounds of COYER (13 books read last winter and 26 read (or attempted) over the summer), I couldn’t wait to join the winter challenge!
From the #COYER Winter Switch Rules
Let’s start with the basic rules and then we’ll get to the complicated.
- 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 your blog, Goodreads, Facebook, 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.
Of course that’s not it…way too simple for us! Now to show your three options #COYER Switch!
My COYER Reading Plan
I’m going to do the #COYER Switch. So I will be doing all three parts (The Strict, The List and the One with the Twist) over the course of the Challenge. I hope I’m up the the Challenge!
From the COYER Rules…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: Going to tackle The Strict. I have some eARCs I want to tackle and some quick electronic reads and those seem to work best early for me.
- January 13 – February 9: Going to tackle The List. This will give me the flexibility to go between physical books and electronic books.
- February 10 – March 9: Going to tackle The Twist, but I’m going to see where I’m at with tackling my list before I decide on the format.
