#COYER March 2014 Kick Off

February 28, 2014 Challenges & Readathons, COYER 22

It’s finally time for the Clean out your E-reader challenge! We’re so excited that so many of you found time to join us and know it’s going to be a blast. See below for a reminder of the rules a calendar of events during the month-long reading challenge and most importantly – the linky and Rafflecopter for you to submit your reviews!

The Rules

Let’s have fun this month! But this is also a challenge with two $10 gift cards up for grabs at the end, so there are some rules to follow. For a full rundown of the rules go to the original sign-up post here. But here are the basics that you need to remember.

1. Submit the link to your goal post to the Linky below.   This post should be live by 11:59 PM (PST) March 8th – meaning you can still sign up if you forgot! – and include the Free or Nearly Free books you hope to read. This can change, of course. Remember, Blog Tour reviews are not accepted this time, sorry. Note: If you do not have a blog/somewhere to post with a unique link, this post can go up in “Two Girls and a Challenge” and just link back to the “COYER Participation Posts” folder.

2. Read and review your books! When you review a book be sure to indicate that it’s part of this challenge by:

  • Including the button (at the bottom of this post)
  • Including the Linky code so that others can easily see the other reviews that are part of the challenge

3. When you’ve reviewed a book submit the link to the review (the actual review, not the blog where it was written) – which can be on a blog, Goodreads, Shelfari, Booklikes, etc – to both the Linky and Rafflecopter below.

The Mini-Challenges

The Mini-Challenges are a way to have extra fun while working through your reads and giving you a chance to win great prizes. All the challenges will open up on March 1st  at 12:01 AM (EST) and last until March 31st at 11:59 PM (EST), giving you a the entire month to play the games and win the prizes. Plus, participating in each mini-challenge will give you extra entries in the final giveaways. Good luck & have fun!

*All challenges have international giveaway options*

Twitter

We’ll be chatting all month on Twitter using #COYER. This was a lot of fun last time and we look forward to seeing everyone’s updates as they progress through the books.

And join us for a Twitter Party March 23 at 4pm (EST). We’ll be using #COYER and will have lots of fun questions for a chance to win swag and even some free books to refill those eReaders after this long month of reading!!! So don’t miss it! You’ll earn extra points in the giveaways for participating in the twitter party as well 😉

The Linky and Rafflecopters

Both the Linky and Rafflecopter will remain open for 1 week into April (closing April 5th at 11:59 PM CST) so that you can still earn entries for those books you finished at the end of the month. Winners will be announced the following week!

Review Rafflecopter

There will be a place to add TWO review links per day. Please enter each link only ONE time (we will be checking this). You don’t need to enter the link the day you did the review, just keep in mind you can only do TWO per day, so don’t try to add them all at once.

Commenting Giveaway

After you comment on a review, go to the Comments Giveaway and enter the link for the review where you left your comment. You’ll have up to 20 entries for comment links per day. No double entries and only quality comments will be accepted (as in, more than “great review” but something that actual engages with the review left). We will be confirming winning entries.

    Thanks so much for hosting this challenge. I ended up only reading COYER e-books for the whole month of March (plus one library book). I really cleaned out my netgalley account.

      I’m playing catch up on comments, but I still wanted you to know I appreciated your comment. So please forgive my tardy reply!

      Yay!! I’m glad you were able to make a dent in you Netgalley account, that’s what it’s all about 🙂

    I made it all 15 read just but I did it. Read others as well but was determined to get through these ones. Thank you

    Just realised I haven’t kept a note of which of my recently finished books (there’s been quite a few in the past two days!) I’ve submitted review links for to the competition. If there’s any duplication, I do apologise.

      I know we got this all worked out and you (and a couple others who had similar problems) inspired us to make it easier and skip the rafflecopter this time 🙂

    Hi two of the books aren’t going to be released in time can I substitute two others. Thank you.

      That’s so weird! Are you sure you logged in with the same email/fb? I had that happen to me once because it picked up a different email. We can check it too, behind the scenes. Want to make sure this hasn’t happened to anyone else!

  5. Chris

    Hi
    Where do we see the reviews I can’t remember if I posted the link to one or not

    Thank you

      Hi Chris. It’s in the linky above on this page. If you’re having trouble viewing it shoot me an email and we can try and figure it out together.

      Looks like you either fixed it or never messed up in the first place! Sorry – I didn’t see your comment until now, but looks good! 🙂

      Yay! I hope you’re having fun! I promise to be a better host as soon as this trip is over :/

    I hope that I did the goal post correctly. I did it both as a goodreads status update. And included it in the “Two Girls and a Challenge”/COYER Participation Posts” folder. Also since I don’t have a blog i didn’t have a graphic to put up (i just included my goodreads photo because it wouldn’t let me enter the link without a photo).

      Looks like you got it perfectly! Looking,forward to a great month, so glad you could join us again!

      Isn’t that a great new feature? I’m so thrilled for the check marks- makes it so much easier to know where you’ve been. Good luck Lexxie – so glad you’ve joined us again 🙂
