Posted March 30, 2024 by Michelle in Uncategorized / 3 Comments


Anyone else feeling a bit tired? Like 2023, good or bad, has taken all your energy? Maybe you feel a little anxious about the year ahead? If no, you’re probably already a master of self-care… but for the rest of us (your COYER hosts Berls, Michelle, Lillian and Stephanie included) it’s time to slow down and spend some time on self-care! Which is why COYER 2024 invites you to join us in committing to UNWIND in whatever way you choose – including enjoying some great books and an even more supportive community.

This year COYER will continue to be a 2 part challenge – a reading challenge and a community challenge – and, as always, the amount you do is 100% up to you. Do one challenge, do both, be all in, pick your favorite parts and ignore the rest – it’s a choose your own adventure, especially this year as we focus on self-care!

COYER Unwind – Reading is self-care

The Winner for COYER Chapter 2 is….

Chapter 2: Spring Rules from April – June

Spring is going to be the same as in 2022, meaning the rules will get a little looser, without completing melting away. Your rules for the spring (beginning April 1) will be:

  1. Format doesn’t matter anymore. You can still read your eBooks and audiobooks, but now you can also read physical books.
  2. The books must be free or nearly free… This includes review books, tour books, NetGalley, Edelweiss, etc. What’s nearly free? No more than $5 for eBooks & Physical Books and no more than $7.50 for Audiobooks (or the equivalent in your currency). This time library books (physical counts also) (including Amazon Prime books) and borrowed books count… but still no Kindle Unlimited/Audible Plus or books higher than $5.
  3. Announce your participation! This can be a blog post (or if you don’t have a blog – Facebook, Twitter, Mastodon, Hive, Instagram, TikTok, Goodreads, etc.) If you want to list books you would like to read, that’s great, but not necessary. The point is to let everyone know you’re committed to COYER Spring, maybe share some goals, and help spread the word. Not sure how to do your post? Check out this example from a previous COYER.
  4. Link up! Link that post (not just your blog homepage) to the linky Michelle will share March 20th.
  5. Review & Link Reviews! Your review may be on your blog, Goodreads, etc. Link the review to the Review Linky (the same linky all year, but Michelle will start pulling winners after Winter reviews). When you post your review to the linky use the following format: Your Name @ Blog (if applicable): Book Title (e.g., “Michelle @ Because Reading: Twilight”).
  6. Follow & share reviews on Social Media. Use #COYER on your posts and look for posts with the hashtag.
  7. Visit Each Other, Chat & Have Fun.

Michelle will post the Spring winner and sign up for Summer on June 19th. Be sure to have your reviews on the linky by 12 noon EST June 18th for them to be included in the Spring drawing. Any reviews entered after 12 noon June 18th will go to the Summer drawing. Keep following Spring rules through the end of June. Summer Rules will begin July 1.
