Winter COYER

COYER Winter Challenge
COYER Winter Challenge

I’m participating in the Winter COYER (from Dec 20, 2014 to Mar 6, 2015) The reading challenge is hosted by Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun and Michelle @ Because Reading.

My Goals

I have a few ideas about what I’ll read, but first I need to go through my books and see which books will work for the challenge. I’m limited to E-Books and Audiobooks that are FREE or NEARLY FREE, NetGalley books or library books. I have lots of inexpensive e-books and audiobooks so I’m excited to focus on them.

Here are my goals:

  • Read & review at least 20 books – that would be two books a week!
  • Visit and comment on at least 5 reviews from the linky a week
  • Participate in at least 2 of the read-a-thons
  • Participate in at least one twitter party
  • Participate in the Facebook group
  • Do at least 1 mini-challenge
  • I plan to post a list of books which I may read when the challenge begins
  • Have fun

I participated in Summer COYER and had a great time! I’m so glad Berls and Michelle decided to have the challenge last so long like they did during the summer. These are my starting goals, but I know they’ll change – so I’ll do updates as the event progresses.
