Review Copy Cleanup 4.0 – Sign Up

Hello and welcome to the fourth Review Copy Cleanup! After three successful editions in 2012 and 2013, 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, everyone is welcome to join.

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 requests, and consequently our to-be-read piles are pretty daunting. For some extra motivation to read, we invented the Review Copy Cleanup. This year we are keeping things simple – no challenges and just one scheduled chat, and weekly updates so we can all keep track of each other’s progress. You’re welcome to keep track of the challenge in the way that’s most convenient for you.

      No you won’t! One of the things I love about #RCCleanup is that we can all cheer each other on – and for some weird reason it always helps. :)
