COYER (Clear out your e-reader) 2022

This is an interesting challenge and suits me pretty well for the end of the year. COYER is hosted by Michelle at Because Reading is More Fun. It's divided into quarterly challenges which have new rules each quarter.  There are three ways to participate in the fall challenge which is Oct through the end of December. I choose the "list" option. The rules state that you can add any book in any format to your list, but only books you read that are on that list count toward successfully completing this COYER challenge.  You are successful if you read at least 50% of the books on your list. I have picked 54 books to have on my list for 3 months which means I have to read 27 books FROM THIS LIST to successfully complete fall COYER. Here's my list (below). The sharing comes in on the master linky where participants can share links to their GR or blog reviews - it's a pretty major list!


Remember, first and foremost, I look at challenges as a gateway to new reading paths, a fun way to nudge me in a new direction with my reading. It's not a competition and if I don't finish, I don't care; but, I'm going to give it a shot! Are you inspired to join me?  If this one doesn't appeal to you, here's a comprehensive list of reading challenges.

Here's where I'll track my efforts to read from my predetermined COYER list. When finished, I'll move the book from the list to showing the cover and a link to a review if there is one.
