COYER Winter Switch | Berls

Posted December 7, 2017 by Berls in COYER / 8 Comments


If you haven’t heard of COYER yet, head over to COYER’s website to learn all about the bi-annual challenge hosted by Because Reading and Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh My!

The thing about being a COYER host is that I can get a little lax about pushing myself in the participation aspect of the challenge. I’ve been lazy the last couple COYERs and that’s about to change! I’ve decided to take on the Switch and all the challenges that includes… for full details go to the sign up post.

This means I have the Strict, the List and the one with the Twist to do! I decided to start with the List, because lists are always hardest for me and I always start challenges stronger than I finish them.

The List: December 16 – January 22

For the list I can read any book on my list, in any format, obtained in any legal way… I just have to have them already. I add 5 new books after I’ve read 5, so that’s good… although me reading more than 5 books in 4 weeks isn’t THAT likely. I’m making this a mix of audio and print since that’s how I tend to read.

For audio, I chose books that I have for audio review. For print, I went to my “owned-but-not-read” shelf on Goodreads and tried to pick books that I still want to read but have been on the list for a long time.

COYER Switch List

The Strict: January 13 – February 9

So The Strict won’t be terribly hard for me, it’s more about checking that I didn’t pay too much for the books, but usually I don’t pay much for my ebooks. It’s the hardcovers I really pay for!

The Twist: February 10 – March 9

This will be the easiest for me, as my main type of reading is audio books. So I’ll bring it home with the audio books!

Are you participating in COYER this time around? What are you doing –
Switch or normal?

About Berls

Michelle adopted me as part of her blog when I decided to close down my blog, Fantasy is More Fun. The blog was dying, but my love of reading and the blogosphere was still strong as ever - so I found my new home here at Because Reading!

I'm not just a book lover, but a one time author (that hopes to be more in the future), wife, mom to the cutest, happiest, best 2 year old and step-mom to the craziest, sweetest 22 year old on the planet. My family mean everything to me and they appear frequently in the Sunday Post with Berls. So grab a glass of wine and chat books, blogging, and family with me!
