COYER Summer 2015, Goals

The Summer COYER (Clear Out Your E-Readers) challenge began on Saturday. There are actually two simultaneous challenges. The first is just to read as many of the books currently in your possession—free or nearly free books. The second is a scavenger hunt. COYER participants can choose one or both of the challenges, so I've been thinking about goals.

I intend to complete at least one freebie every week. (Did I mention that the challenge includes writing a review?) If a book meets the criterion for one of the scavenger hunt categories, then I'll record that as well. And, there are five read-a-thons scheduled for COYER, and I plan to participate in at least three of them—all of them if I can manage it.

I still have some library books on hand that I need to read before their return date; I have a couple of significant year-long challenges that I can't ignore all summer long. So, while I'm going to be participating in COYER throughout the summer, I am not going to be reading exclusively for it.

To summarize:

  • Read one freebie each week
  • Record qualifying books in scavenger hunt
  • Participate in at least three COYER read-a-thons
  • Join the discussion in the COYER Facebook group

Monday Motivation

I started reading Mark Schweizer's The Christmas Cantata on Saturday afternoon. I received the Kindle edition as a gift (that counts as free, right?). Next up is The Lost Concerto by Helaine Mario. The eBook came from NetGalley; publication date is July 1, so I need to read it fairly soon. And I'm starting to listen to Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. This was a freebie in the 2015 SYNC audiobook give-aways. Those should give me plenty to read along with the library books I've borrowed—which don't count as part of the COYER challenge
