November: Write it. Read it. Clean it. #COYER

Clean out your E-reader Challenge Sign-up You probably already know that November is NanoWrimo -- where you write a novel in a month.  Or 50,000 words worth, anyways.  I intend to beef up my word count this month.  But November is also Clean Out Your E-Reader Month!  Those free or nearly free books you have piling up on your Kindle?  Time to read them! 

Fantasy is More Fun and Because Reading is Better than Real Life are hosting this blog hop/challenge, so be sure to check out their blogs as well as the others participating. 

I'm not a book blogger so why did I decide to participate?  Well,  because :
1. My buddy Lexxie at (un)Conventional Bookviews told me I should, and when she talks I listen.
2. I just put Untethered out there for free.  I know how it feels to realize that your book is languishing on some one's Kindle.  So...
3. I wanted to help out other authors by reading and reviewing those books on my e-reader!

Here are five of the freebies I intend to read:

Someone Different by Kate Hanney
One Ghost Per Serving by Nina Post
Girl Z: My Life as a Teenage Zombie by C.A. Verstaete
Deer In Headlights by Staci Hart
True of Blood by Bonnie Lamer

November here I come!  50,000 words to write!  300,000 words to read! (Way too much to clean.)
*gulps*
I will keep you posted on my progress.

    1. See? I do listen when you talk! And believe me, I took me forever to figure out the linky thing. Well, no, it's still not figured out, but hey... Next is BookLikes. That I'm lost on... :)

    1. Stormi, maybe we need a Nano/COYER support group. :) I'd be interested in hearing how it goes for you.

    1. Thanks, Michelle! I'm looking forward to reading all these books. My only problem is I am a complete dolt when it comes to computer stuff and every time I try to add the linky at the bottom of the page it won't show up. Grrr.

  5. So glad you decided to join us. Your reasons #2 & #3 are exactly what inspired us to come up with this challenge actually :-) I've decided I want to focus on free books as part of my blog with the feature I started for the challenge Free Book Fridays - today was the first one - I'll keep it going as long as I have authors interested in participating - if you are email me :)!

    Good luck with the challenge and NaNoWriMo (I'm doing it too! Insane month!)
