COYER Winter Switch!

COYER Switch has 3 components: The Strict, The List, and The One with the Twist. You can choose to do the three components in any order you’d like, but you’ll do each component once.

  • December 16 – January 12 The Strict
  • January 13 – February 9 The List
  • February 10 – March 9 The One With the Twist

The Strict:
This is good old strict COYER. The rules:
  1. Every book you read must be an eBook or audiobook.
  2. Every book must be either free or less than $5.
  3. No library books, borrowed books, or Kindle Unlimited.

The One with the Twist (I'm choosing physical books as my format):
  1. You can read ANY book. ANY price. Obtained any LEGAL way.
  2. The Twist is, you have to stick with one format. If you choose audiobooks, then only the audiobooks you read during this phase will count. If you choose eBooks, then only eBooks you read during this phase will count. ETC….

The List:
  1. Make a list of up to 30 books you want to read.
  2. Every book on the list must be in your possession BEFORE you put them on the list.
  3. You can add 5 new books for every 5 books you read.
  4. Books on the list can be any format, any price, obtained any LEGAL way… so that means library books, KU, borrowed, etc.
