COYER Seasons: Summer 2022
I’m doing the COYER Seasons challenges all year this year, and it’s time (actually, past time!) to sign up for the Summer season. COYER Seasons Summer 2022 runs from July 1 through Sept. 30, 2022, and you can sign up here. It’s a pretty laid-back challenge, in that the rules are relaxed so that pretty much everything you read will qualify for the challenge. Kindle Unlimited, Scribd, books you were given, ARCs, books you bought… it all counts.
Here are the rules:
Like traditional COYER Summer it’s time to relax the rules all the way. Your rules for the Summer (beginning July 1) will be:
- Format doesn’t matter anymore. You can still read your eBooks and Audiobooks, but now you can also read physical books.
- Price doesn’t matter anymore. They can be free, they can be $50. They can be Kindle Unlimited, borrowed, etc.
- Announce your participation! This can be a blog post (or if you don’t have a blog – Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Goodreads, etc.) If you want to list books you would like to read, that’s great, but not necessary. The point is to let everyone know you’re committed to COYER Summer, maybe share some goals, and help 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 Sign-up Linky.
- Review & Link Reviews! Your review may be on your blog, Goodreads, etc. Link the review to the Review Linky (the same linky as Winter and Spring, but Michelle will start pulling winners after Spring reviews). When you post your review to the linky use the following format: Your Name @ Blog (if applicable): Book Title (e.g., “Michelle @ Because Reading: Twilight”).
- Follow & share reviews on Twitter. We’re going to try and use twitter a lot more this year (like we used to). Use #COYER on your posts and look for tweets with the hashtag.
- Visit Each Other, Chat & Have Fun!
My primary goal is to read 30 books over the 3 months of the challenge. Given my usual reading pace, I should be able to manage that, so my stretch goal is to write at least a one- or two-sentence review for every book for Goodreads, and link those to the Review Linky if I don’t get an actual blog review written.
