#COYER 2016 Summer Vacation Challenge!

ChallengeSUMMERSignUpNow-2016Last summer for COYER, I really buckled down and got through a lot of my books that have just been sitting around and gathering dust. The problem was that I was so targeted on the scavenger hunt part of the challenge that I started looking for books that I didn’t have, just so I could purchase them and check off more of the 80+ hunt items! So this summer, I am really going to get through a major part of my back-log by focusing on books that I have gotten from NetGalley. That’s around 50+ books, people. In addition, I am going to include books from two other challenges that I am doing: the Reading Assignment Challenge (4 books per month for the whole year) and my Summer Reading Challenge (20 books from 6/1 – 8/31). Here are the lists of the summer books that I’ve posted over 4 weeks (the last post will be published on 6/30):

In order to sign up, check out this post from Because Reading is Better Than Real Life. The challenge begins on June 18th and goes through September 2nd. You can sign up any time before August 1st.

And if you really, really want to know – here’s my list of NetGalley books that I need to read. I probably won’t get through all of them (especially because of the books I need to read for the other challenges), but I will do my best! Hmm…should I read them alphabetically by title, alphabetically by author, in publisher groups, oldest first?

  1. I am hoping to use this challenge to catch up on some of my e-arcs as well! I am swamped and could really use this time to catch up a little bit. Good luck and have fun 🙂
