Here are the details copied from DDS's blog:
2013 Reading Challenge: Indie-Fever

How it works:

1. Read and Review as many Indie Books as possible during this year.

2. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. However, you have to post a review on some site in order to participate. It can be on Goodreads and/or Amazon and/or Barnes & Noble and/or Smashwords.

3. If you are a blogger link up your permalink to the review posts. If you aren't a blogger, then link up the permalink to your reviews from whichever site you have chosen to post the review on.

4. The books can overlap with other reading challenges.

5. Books read may be any form (audio, print, e-book).

6. Post your links to your reviews each month to share with other participants.

7. The challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 1, 2013. Sign ups will be open till 30th November'2013

How To Sign-Up and Join In:

1. Choose a challenge level listed below.

2. Create a post on your blog, in a group, or on a forum (where possible) to let others see what you’re aiming for (a predefined list of Authors/Books is optional).

3. Grab the badge and place it in your sign up post. Then link back to b00k r3vi3ws.

4. Grab the direct URL to your sign up post, not your blog, click the Linky List and enter your link.

5. Once you review a book it would be great for you to share them by submitting them on the Review List.

6. When you’re done it’s completion post time and you can share these on the completion/wrap-up List.

Challenge Level:

Amateur: Choose to read & review 4 - 8

Indie Books Lover: Choose to read & review 9 - 16

Indie Books Expert: Choose to read & review 17 - 28

Indie Books Fanatic: Choose to read & review 28 or above Indie Books

When talking about this challenge on Twitter, please use the hastag (#IndieFever). It makes it much easier to keep track of the conversations, answer questions and/or tweet back!

On January 1, I'll publish a Post with Mr. Linky and Instructions on how to add the links as you finish up reading & reviewing a book. You'll be able to find these posts during the year by clicking on the button in the sidebar. (I'll create those links on January 1.)

I will promote your reviews through facebook and twitter once you submit them in the Review List. Once a month I will update the top 10 Readers' names.
If you would like to join me in the challenge, click on the challenge badge at the beginning of this post.

I am aiming for "AMATEUR" (read and review 4-8 Indie books).


I will keep track of my progress below and link up my reviews:
  1. Death Comes Home by Rhiannon Frater (In Darkness We Must Abide, Episode #1)
  2. The Terrible Wave by Marden Dahlstedt 
  3. Twenty-Five Years Ago Today by Stacy Juba 
  4. Pretty When She Kills by Rhiannon Frater (Pretty When She Dies, Book #2) 


  1. Thanks for joining in! :) All the best - hope you enjoy it! Will be looking forward to your Reviews...
