March Challenges & Readathons Goals/Updates/Results

I'm participating in the now tri-annual (is that a word) event called COYER, or 'Clean Out Your E-Reader'. I literally have an addiction to Kindle Daily Deals, a bad habit of binge-requesting books from Netgalley, and Review Request books so this challenge is exactly what I need. This wonderful challenge is hosted by Fantasy is More Fun & Because Reading is better than real life. I'm going for the level 'Deep Clean' which means 10-14 eBooks.If you're doing this challenge too, remember to update on twitter with the hashtag 'COYER' and the twitter party is on Sunday, March 23rd at 4pm EST. There are also mini-challenges which I am looking forward to.

In case you haven't heard of this (don't worry I didn't about two weeks ago) this is the gist of #COYER: Have you been a little over eager with your mouse when browsing Kindle Freebies? Or maybe those books on Netgalley/Edelweiss were just too hard to resist? Are your free reads sitting in your E-reader, neglected, just waiting for when you have time to get to them? Well now is the time with the “Clean out your E-reader Challenge” For all other information like the rules, twitterchat info, etc, this is the Kick Off post and this is the General Information.

This is a Blog Hop!

This list will close in 6 days, 6 hrs, 11 min (3/8/2014 12:00 AM North America - Central Standard Time)

I'm also participating in the monthlong 'Take Control of Your TBR Pile'. This challenge is different because the rules don't confine me to E-Books, and they also allow Blog Tour books. On top of that, they have to be published before March 2014. For all information and details about this challenge hosted by the Caffeinated Book Reviewer click here. And remember to use the hashtag 'TakeControlTBR' for updates. 

My lovely friend Jayne @ Fiction_TheNewReality is hosting her first ever read-a-thon, so of course I had to participate. Remember to use the hashtag 'MarchMadnessReads' to update the participants of your progress.

Extra Information from Mwa:
-I don't actually think I'm going to read this many books. I'm merely listing them, for example I know I won't be able to read every single Netgalley and Amazon freebie, but am just listing them in case.
-Take Control of Your TBR Pile and COYER are so similar, but have slightly different rules, but I'm just showing pictures of all the books in total, but they're not all specifically for one challenge and/or readathon. I've also learned that I'm extremely bipolar when it comes to what books I say I will read, so when the wrap-up post comes. you might not even see half of the books there. All the books in total make up my E-Book goals for March Madness.
-For COYER and Take Control of Your TBR Pile, I will be posting review on my Goodreads account and Amazon, but not on the blog because I don't want to overwhelm you.
-My goals are very ambitious which I am aware of, but I do have Spring Break, and I want to try and actually get ahead of my Goodreads Goal instead of behind.
