Summer’s around the corner and you know what that means? SUMMER VACATION! It’s time to take a break from the work and rules and just let loose! And COYER’s going on Summer Vacation too!
What does that mean exactly?
That we’re throwing away
all most of the rules! You ready?!
COYER Summer Vacation
COYER Summer Vacation will start on the first day of summer and end the weekend after labor day. So that’s June 21st – September 5th!
On September 6th we will announce the winners of TWO $10 Giftcards for Amazon or Barnes & Noble. There will be several opportunities for other prizes throughout the event.
1. You must create a sign-up post anytime between now and August 15th -on blog, goodreads, fb, google+, etc. Yes, that means you can sign up
until August 15th! But don’t wait, you’ll miss most of the fun!
2. You must link the sign-up post below (don’t link to your blog, link to the sign-up post).
3. You must post your review books somewhere & link the reviews to the review linky to be eligible for one of the grand prize giveaways.
4. Have Fun!
Normally you’re only allowed to read eBooks that were less than $5 for COYER, but since this is Summer Vacation you can read whatever you want! To be clear, here are some questions you may be asking…
- Can I read a book that cost $10? Yes!
- Are Tour books and Author Review books ok? Yes! Yes!
- Can I read a paperback? An audio book? An eBook? Yes! Yes! Yes!
Getting the idea? There really are very few rules here. We won’t even have a rafflecopter, to keep things as easy as possible. Instead we’ll be using random.org with the sign-up and review linky (each entry on a linky will be worth 1 entry). So if you’ve added your link there, you’re in the giveaway.
Note: You MUST have a sign-up post! This is different than normal! Since we’re trying to keep things super simple you sign up once, with your sign up post. You can have a post just declaring your intention to participate and you can later update (or repost) with your goals. Or if you know your goals now, go ahead a post them. Here’s an example of both kind of sign-up post:
- Declaring your intention, but no goals? Check out Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun’s post.
- Have some goals already? Check out Michelle @ Because Reading’s post.
Other Fun Challenges for COYER Summer Vacation
So all the above is ALL you have to do to participate and win prizes with COYER Summer Vacation. But, if you’re looking for some more fun, we’re going to have some themed readathons, twitter parties (#COYER), and Facebook chats scattered throughout the summer. Join in on 1 of them, all of them, or none of them. It’s up to you!
Any books read during a readathon can count for COYER as long as you review them. But the readathons will just be about reading. We’ll publish posts on the Monday prior to each readathon reminding you to join in and letting you sign up. You’ll be able to join in, even if you aren’t doing COYER Summer Vacation, too!
Here’s the schedule so you can start planning what you’ll read:
July 4th – 6th: Fun in the Sun!
