Head to any of their blogs or #COYER 10 Year Anniversary Sign Ups – Because reading is better than real life for more information. As always, the hashtag is #COYER.

Chapter 2 will run May – August.

It may be summer… but we’re turning things upside down on you and we’ll be giving you a special challenge that we cooked up special just for our 10-year celebration. We hope you like games, because you’ll be reading and racing your way through a board game this summer! You can log-in to the board game at

Rules for Chapter 2:

  1. Work your way through the board game earning ‘spaces’ on the board. We will be sharing the game board with you in April with more specifics. You will move forward, racing towards the finish line by reading books. Depending on the categories you earn 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 spaces on the board.
    • 6 spaces: free books (any format, but must be owned by you… no library, subscriptions, etc)
    • 5 spaces: nearly free books. This is less than $1 print/eBook, or $3 audiobooks (still any format, but still must be owned by you… no library, subscriptions, etc)
    • 4 spaces: sale books. This is less than $5 print/eBook, or $7.50 audiobooks (still any format, but still must be owned by you… no library, subscriptions, etc)
    • 3 spaces: library books, ARCs, borrowed books (still any format)
    • 2 spaces: subscription books — KU, Prime, Scribd, Audible+, etc (still any format)
