COYER Scavenger Hunt

COYER Scavenger Hunt
The Clean Out Your E-Reads Challenge
Saturday, June 20 – Friday, September 4, 2015
hosted by Fantasy is More Fun, Because Reading, and Books, Movies, Reviews.Oh My!
(details, rules and signup)

While visiting Stacking the Shelves posts, I came across this summer reading challenge that fellow bloggers are planning to participate in with lots of good bookish stuff. It includes the following events (some with giveaway offers): Reviews, Scavenger Hunt, Supportive Participants, Read-a-thons, Twitter Parties and Social Media Fun.

I plan to give this a go as there is such a variety of things to do offered. The Scavenger Hunt will be new for me and sounds like something fun to look out for while reading.

Rule for reviews:
Read Books! We don’t care if it’s an e-book, physical book, audiobook, book that cost $200 – just like COYER Summer Vacation you can read any book you accessed in a legal way they just need to be your own.
