#COYER Big Summer Birthday Bash Sign-up Post

Y'all, Berls & Michelle are celebrating FIVE YEARS of #COYER! Can you believe it?!? Y'all know #COYER is one of my favorite challenges because we *ALL* need to clean off our ereaders... amiright?!? And it's such a fun and interactive challenge! Berls & Michelle have come up so much goody-goodness for this celebratory version. I've listed the basics below and a little information on the other elements of the challenge as they apply to me. If you're interested in joining me - and why wouldn't you be?? - can click the graphic above (or here) to check out the FULL details. Here are the basics:

  • The challenge begins June 9th at 12 a.m. EDT and ends August 31st at 11:59 p.m. EDT
  • You must create a sign-up post anytime between now and June 9th on blog, Goodreads, Facebook, Google+, etc. Be sure to indicate your cleanup goal and don't forget to link your sign-up post to the linky here.
  • It's Summer and you know what that means...anything goes! You can read books in any format, purchased at any price as long as you legally obtained it. Library? Yep! Borrowed? Yep! KU? Yep! $500? Yep (but are you crazy?)!
  • Link your reviews to the linky that will be provided on the Kick-off Post.
  • There will be two grand prize winners - $10 gift card - one for the linky review list, and one for the Birthday Bash goodies.
Sounds fun, yeah? Here's where it gets even more fun! Berls & Michelle came up with Birthday Bash Goodies for each COYER they've hosted thus far. Again, for ALL the details, click the graphic above but here's the Goodies I'll be partaking in.

Goody #4 in Honor of COYER #4: Mini-Challenges 
Participate in 1 or ALL the mini-challenges hosted by COYER participants to get an entry in the goody bag. Get an extra entry for hosting a mini-challenge.

These are always fun so if I have time I'll participate. And Lexxie and I are going to host one as well!

Goody #5 in Honor of COYER #5: Scavenger Hunt
COYER #5 was a summer scavenger hunt and I really had fun with it. So participating in the mini-scavenger hunt Sunday August 12th 12am EST to Sunday August 25th 11:59pm EST earns you an entry in the goody back. And seeing as I still have the list around with books chosen for the different categories, I'm in for this goody!

Goody #6 in Honor of COYER #6: Back to Basics
All you have to do to earn an entry in the goody bag for this one is participate in the Social Media games on Facebook, the Instagram Challenge, and the Twitter parties. I'm good with that. ;)

Goody #7 in Honor of COYER #7: Summer Vacation BINGO
Fill in 1 or all the BINGO cards over the entire summer for one point per board in the goody bag.

Goody #8 in Honor of COYER #8: Survive Hurricane Berls

Goody #9 in Honor of COYER #9: The One with the Lists
COYER 9 was the Summer Reading List. In honor of that list, we're making a list again. :) Make a list of 15 books and read 10 of them for a point in the goody bag.

Goody #10 in Honor of COYER #10: Summer Switch
The most recent COYER was Winter Switch and it was a lot of fun! Summer Switch runs from Sunday June 24th to Saturday July 14th for up to 3 points in the Goody Bag Giveaway. Pick your order for the Strict, the List, and the Twist...one per week...June 24th to June 30th, July 1st to July 7th, and July 8th to July 14th.

The Strict:
  1. Every book you read must be an ebook or audiobook.
  2. Every book must be either free or less than $5.
  3. No library books, borrowed books, or KU books.

The List:
  1. Make a list of up to 15 books (since it's legal, I'm using the same list from Goody #9)
  2. Every book on the list must be in your possession BEFORE you put them on the list. Books on the list can be any format, any price, obtained in any LEGAL way...so that means library books, KU, borrowed, etc.

The Twist:
  1. You can read ANY book. ANY price. Obtained any LEGAL way.
  2. The Twist is, you have to stick to one format. If you choose audiobooks, then you can only read audiobooks during whichever phase you assign the Twist to. Same goes for ebooks.

So the only Goody I'm skipping is #2. 
Y'all, this COYER might be the best one yet! I hope y'all will join in the fun!!
