To sign up and for rules, see COYER Summer Vacation 2017 post
This is my second COYER (my first was last year's summer edition) and I really enjoy the book discussions (on FB and Twitter) and giving me incentives to keep reading during the summer.
COYER Summer Vacation has two ways to play this year: one way is to do basic "read anything you want in whatever format you want" COYER and the other way is to build your own summer reading list (a throwback to summers spent reading off a list given by teachers). I decided to go with the COYER Summer Reading List, as I like a focused group of books to track. I made two copies of my summer reading list, here on BL and on GR. My list is a mix of print and e-books, all from my personal library. I don't know if I will add more books as I read down the original list (see rules in the linked post); that will be a decision I make come in early August.
For the summer reading list, there will also be mandatory read-a-thons- the last read-a-thon will happen at the same time as Bout of Books Cycle 20, so I can participate in two read-a-thons in one week (of course, the read-a-thons end the day before school starts).
Now I just need to wait patiently for June 17th to come around.
