Calendar of Events
In addition to the main challenge to read and review your Free or Nearly Free E-Reads, we’ll have Read-a-thons, mini-challenges, games in our FB Group (request to join here!), and twitter parties – ALL with giveaways. All these things are EXTRAS and are NOT required. But don’t miss them all, they’re tons of fun!
All COYER Read-a-thons will have their own prize and are open to anyone who wants to sign up, even if they’re not doing COYER. Here’s what we’ve scheduled. You can signup for any/all of the Read-a-thons now, by clicking on their link. All books for Read-a-thons must meet COYER requirements.

The Review Linky
And FINALLY! The way to win one of TWO $10 Amazon or B&N Gift Cards is to read AND REVIEW your COYER reads. Every time you link a review to the review linky here, you increase your chances of winning. The giveaway is International and randomly selected. We will be monitoring links to make sure that they link directly to reviews (on blogs, Goodreads, etc.) for COYER approved books.
Thanks for joining us! Good luck and have fun!
