Review Copy Cleanup 3.0 – Sign Up

Hello and welcome to the third Review Copy Cleanup! After two successful editions in 2012, we’re back for another month of review copy reading madness. Whether you have a modest pile or a complete mountain of review books to get through, you are all welcome to join the fun.

What is the Review Copy Cleanup?

RCC is a month-long event in which Celine from Nyx Book Reviews and myself challenge ourselves to read as many review books as we possibly can. We are both notorious for accepting way too many review requests and consequently, our to-be-read piles are pretty daunting. In order to get some extra motivation we invented Review Copy Cleanup. This year we are keeping things simple – no challenges or scheduled Twitter chats, just weekly updates so we can all keep track of each other’s process – and lots of reading, of course. You’re welcome to keep track of the challenge in the way that’s most convenient for you.

  2. This might be a good way to read all my Netgalley copies (and I still have two review copies I got from authors in 2012, I feel ashamed) I’m going to think about joining!

    Yay, it’s back again. I have been waiting for it. I’m so excited. I’m not sure how much I will be able to participate though since my institute has this big national conference coming up in mid-Feb and we are organizing it. Also, I will be busy preparing for my sister’s engagement next month. Hopefully I will cover up in the last two weeks.

    I have some ebooks for review that have been neglected, shame on me. Especially with classes starting in the middle of February, I seriously need to read those and send the feedback. I might give this challenge a try :)

    It also sounds fun ;-)

    • Vicky says:

      We’re in the same boat, then :) My classes started last Monday which was one of the reasons why I wanted to get these deadlines and books “out of the way”, so to speak.

      Best of luck! xxx

  8. First time I am taking part in the review copy cleanup and I am super excited. Hope to get some reading done! :)

    Brilliant idea! I have so many books to catch up on so this is perfect.

    • Vicky says:

      Ah, I know this feeling all too well. I’ve so many review copies from last year, I’m literally mortified. Let’s hope we can both catch up this month!

    A nice way to brighten up February and keep me reading after my new year new start mood wears off!

    My pile is far too long, and my goal of attacking it in January was foiled by “real-life”. SO let’s try for February! (It’s nice to know I’m not the only person in this situation …)

    Super excited about this. Thank you so much for putting it together. I can’t wait to get through some of these books!!

  21. I’m so happy this is back! It helps give me an extra kick to read some of those review books I have to read. My pile, if they were physical books, could probably kill me or seriously injure me.

    This is exactly the incentive I need to tackle my MASSIVE review pile. Thanks for hosting again, girls! <3

    PS – Completely unrelated, but I meant to tweet you last week after I watched Downton Abbey…I was SO angry with what happened, I bawled my face off. I hate when shows kill people off, especially characters who were my favourite. :-(

      And thanks for joining us again, Marie <3

      I know, right? It really pissed me off. Although what bothers me the most is the fact that the whole story just doesn’t seem to go anywhere – it’s like a bloody soap opera from the 1920s… :( I loved the first season (and even the second one) but I don’t think I’ll keep watching it. Ugh! Which episode are you on, by the way?

      • SweetMarie83 says:

        This week’s will be episode 5. I’m enjoying it so far, but I do see what you mean about it becoming very soap opera-ish. A lot of drama and weird romantic themes and jilted lovers, that sort of thing. I’m curious to see where it goes, but you’re not the only one I’ve heard from who isn’t sure if they’ll continue next season.

    • Vicky says:

      We’re so happy to have you on board! <3 :) I got through about 6 books during the previous RCC, if I remember correctly, but this month was a lot worse. I’ve only read two books so far and one of them is barely over a hundred pages. UGH. I hope you’re doing much better than me! x

    Thanks for hosting! This is my first reading challenge aside from the one on Goodreads. I’m so excited to participate!! :)

  29. I can’t believe I didn’t know that this was running again until now! I will have to get my goals post sorted for tomorrow :) I can already add two review books that I’ve read this month to it though ;)

    Good luck to everyone taking part :)

      Yes, it was pretty much a last minute decision so we were quite late with the sign-up post this time around :( But I’m sure there will be another one sometime in the summer so keep your eyes peeled!

      Hope you’re OK xxxxx

      And thank you for joining us (and sorry for being terribly late with my reply)! We did have a schedule sort of thing during the very first #RCCleanup but we’re doing things a bit differently this time. So there are no challenges or Twitter chats at all – we all try to focus on reading instead. You’re welcome to post weekly (or daily) updates or just a wrap-up post at the end of the month, whichever works best for you.

      And make sure to use the #RCCleanup hashtag on Twitter so that we can stop by your blog and check out your progress. :D
