Clean out your E-reader Challenge Sign-ups!

September 5, 2013 Challenges & Readathons 32

It’s time to link up your starter posts – so go here to join in!

Have you been a little over eager with your mouse when browsing Kindle Freebies? Or maybe those books on Netgalley were just too hard to resist? Are your free reads sitting in your E-reader, neglected, just waiting for when you have time to get to them? Well now is the time with the “Clean out your E-reader Challenge”!

Join us November 1st – 30th with the Clean out your E-reader Challenge hosted by Fantasy is More Fun & Because Reading is better than real life and start cleaning out your free E-reads! Not only will you get to those reads that have been sitting unread for too long, but two bloggers will have a chance to win a $10 Gift Card from Amazon or B&N in our Review Posts Giveaway AND everyone will drive more traffic to your blog!

The Rules:

• Go through your E-readers and select the FREE OR NEARLY FREE (up to $5 will be accepted) books you’d like to read during the challenge. The book must have been free, (Kindle Deals, Netgalley, Etc.) Anyone caught not using a free book or a book that is pirated will be removed from challenge.

• Sign up with the linky below letting us know that you plan to participate. Then,on November 1st create a post announcing your participating with a list of books you plan to read during the challenge. A starter post will be posted at 8am on November 1st with the review link. Link your participation blog post there. Links not live by the end of the day (11:59 PM PST) November 1st will be removed. Your book list doesn’t have to be set it stone it can change along the way, just be sure you’re still reading FREE books.

• Start reading your free books (starting November 1st) and reviewing them, either on your blog or Goodreads (blog will give you more traffic). Put the link to your review (to the review URL, not your Web Address) on the review linky available November 1st, listing your blog name and the name of the book you reviewed. When you write your review, be sure to include the challenge logo and linky at the end so that we can all check out the reviews.

• To enter the giveaway: every day you post a review of a free E-book, enter the link (to the review URL, not your Web Address) on the Rafflecopter available November 1st (1 link per blog, per day) to get an extra entry in the giveaway.

We’ll also be having a Twitter Party (Date TBD) – while your reading your free E-books or posting your reviews be sure to update us on Twitter with #COYER!

    I don’t usually post reviews on my blog, just on Goodreads, but this is such an awesome idea! I have a ton of free books I want to get read but realistically can do five. Looking forward to participating.

    • Berls

      Great to have you! And you can just use the links for your goodreads reviews if you want, that’s perfectly fine :-) We’re looking forward to a fun month!

    • Berls

      Yay! I need to really fix my NG ratio next month :/

      So yes – you can definitely still join in. A big part of this is just the reading. The giveaway is for the reviews – but we’ll have the rafflecopter open for a week into December. And if you do any kind of review – even on goodreads or shelfari – you can enter those links as well. Be great to have you :-)

    • Berls

      Yeah me and that 1-click button have been in a committed relationship for a while now LOL! Great to have you on board :-)

  2. Rainy

    I’m signing up for the deep clean. I have tons of amazon and netgalley freebies I keep meaning to get to. Thanks to Lexxie for the heads up about this challenge. :)

      I’m so glad you found us and decided to join in! I think it’s going to be a lot of fun – and I think I’ll sigh a breath of relief at getting through some of my freebies! I’m dedicating the month to improving my netgalley ratio!

    • Berls

      Yay! Great to have you on board. And I think we all could use a kick in the butt. It took coming up with this challenge to make me face my stack of free books :)

    • Berls

      Thanks Lexxie! You and me both! and did you know that it’s not possible to disable the one-click option? I actually contacted Amazon about it, not because I wanted to stop 1-clicking but because I wanted to have an option to decide how I’m paying. No way to do it!

  3. Jennifer K

    Okay great. I’ll create a special folder on goodreads. But where should I post my first post on Nov 1st listing what I hope to read? Can i do it as a status update on goodreads and then just post the link? Thanks.

    • Berls

      Hmm I think that will work – you may have trouble getting in a full list with the character limit… for now, plan on that. But we’ll do some brainstorming and see if there’s an easier way and let you know if we come up with something. I imagine there are others like you who want to participate, so I’m so glad you asked :)

  4. Jennifer K

    Hi, I have a question. I have a bunch of netgalley ebooks and other ebooks (free to $5). But i don’t have a blog. I just post my reviews on goodreads. Can i still participate? Thanks.

    • Berls

      Yes, definitely! Just be sure to link your goodreads reviews when it comes time to enter giveaways. Glad to have you on board, go ahead and sign up :-)

    • Berls

      that 1-click button is going to be the death of me!! Do you think there’s a limit to the Kindle Cloud? Because I may be pushing it LOL! So glad to have you on board. It’s going to be so much fun and such a relief to get through some of these books!

  5. Gaele

    ok – I’m in. I don’t know when – but I’ll shoot for 10: I have at least that many – all in one ‘genre’ even!

    Now to pull the info and go set my post.

    • Berls

      Yay – it’s great to have you! And you have until November 1 to figure out what you’ll read, so plenty of time :) I have more than I’d like to admit, myself.

    • Berls

      Yay! We’re going to have so much fun working away at those eBooks and hopefully we’ll discover some authors along the way that we’ve been meaning to check out for a while!

    • Berls

      Yay! I’m glad you’ll join us. Maybe you can get some overlap between your read-a-thon and this challenge? I’ll be dong your read-a-thon too, and I think that’s the approach I’m going to take with a few of these at least.

    • Berls

      Hi Laureen! Yes – any free book will work, as long as it wasn’t pirated. Don’t forget to sign-up on the linky! :-)
