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 the rules again! You ready?!
COYER Summer Vacation
COYER Summer Vacation will run all summer, June 18th – September 2nd!
On September 4th we will announce the winners of THREE $10 Gift cards for Amazon or Barnes & Noble. There will be several opportunities for other prizes throughout the event with our social media games.
- You must create a sign-up post anytime between now and August 1st – on blog, goodreads, fb, google+, etc.Yes, that means you can sign up until August 1st! But don’t wait, you’ll miss most of the fun!
- You must link to the sign-up post below (don’t link to your blog, link to the sign-up post).
- You must review books somewhere & link the reviews to the review linky to be eligible for one of the grand prize giveaways.
- 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! 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 kinds of sign-up post:
- Declaring your intention, but no goals? Check out Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun’s post from a couple years ago.
- Have some goals already? Check out Michelle @ Because Reading’s post from a couple years ago.
Other Fun Challenges for COYER Summer Vacation
As usual, we never just read books with COYER. For us, COYER is about the amazing community we’ve built. So there’s will be fun social media games in our Facebook Group (join us) and via instagram. We’ve added a fun social media game that’s like BINGO. We hope you’ll love it when we share those details June 18th. We’ll also have a few twitter parties, which are a great chance to chat, plus win lots of prizes.

I think I might participate in this one. I like your schedule. If I do decide to do this one, do you mind if I follow in your lists….that way it will help me with the view ARCs that I have.
That is an older post but you are more than welcome to do that. It’s a fun way to get book read. I do hope you will join us it’s a really fun challenge.
I’m looking forward to all the fun this summer!
Okay I am a newbie at this kind of stuff. How do I get the rules to show up for my post on this and also get the banner or pin uploaded on to my blog post? I am really looking forward to trying this for the first time ever. Thanks for any help you can give me. And I am looking forward to joining you all in all the fun.
When you make a participation post you don’t have to put the rule you can just link it back to one of your blogs, however you can copy and paste from my blog and just adjust when you paste it into your post. The logo/banner, you can grab from the bottom, just grab the code or you can just drag the image from the top of the post into your desktop and upload it to your sight. If you have a FB account please join the FB group, the ladies in there can help you also depending on your blogging format.
I’ll be posting my sign-up post on Wednesday! Can’t wait to get started. You ladies rock!
I’m excited to be participating this year! This will make my summer indoors a bit more fun! 😀
