I participated in this challenge back in the fall and made some headway reading those free books and review books that had been piling up. Today starts the COYER challenge and I'm diving in again. Along with the Caffeinated Reader's TBR Pile Challenge also going on this month, I should whittle down that TBR pile. I also have a few current review books I'll be reading but most of my reading this month will be for these two challenges.
For the month of March Fantasy is More Fun & Because Reading is better than real life are hosting this challenge. The idea is to start cleaning out your free or nearly free E-reads! Not only will you get to those reads that have been sitting unread for too long, but 2 participants will have a chance to win prizes in the Review Posts Giveaway.
So, what books count? The book must have been FREE or NEARLY FREE: under $5, Kindle Deals, Netgalley, Edelweiss & author review requests only (NO blog tour reviews at this time). Anyone caught not using a free book, or using a book that is pirated will be removed from challenge.
Start reading your books (March 1st) and reviewing them, on your blog, goodreads, Booklikes, etc. Put the link to your review (to the review URL, not your web address) on the review linky available March 1st, listing your blog name and the name of the book you reviewed. When you write your review, you MUST include the challenge logo and linky somewhere on the post so that we can all check out the reviews. (I just know I'll forget that part, lol.)
There will be challenges, giveaways, and a twitter party, see the details here.
Each person who participated will be able to grab an award ribbon at the end to put up on their blog announcing your accomplishment. Another level has been added to reflect the amazing reading prowess of some readers last time.
Lightly Clean – 1 to 4 eBooks
Spring Clean - 5 to 9 eBooks
Deep Clean - 10 to 14 eBooks
Xtreme Clean - 15 or more eBooks
Since I'm doing two challenges this month and have some review books I have to read, my starting goal is Lightly Clean. At the end of the month, I'll post my results in my monthly challenge wrap up post.
My very tentative reading list:
1) Gwynneth Ever After by Linda Poitevin
2) Against the Mark by Kat Martin
3) The Long Way Home by Jessica Scott
4) No Flowers Required by Cari Quinn
