Joining the IndieAthon Challenge for March

I spotted this fun-looking challenge at A Thousand Worlds. It is being hosted over at Lost In A Story. The idea is to promote reading of indie authored books so that sounded just my sort of challenge.

"Throughout the month (March 2018) you can read however many books you want, not all of them have to be for the readathon of course, but the goal is to read as many indie-published or self-published books as you want! The only limitation to what you can read is that it has to be either self-published or published by a small or independent publisher to count for the readathon. The books can be old, new, popular, unpopular, fiction, non-fiction, anything!"

Any books count, but there's also this Bingo Card to add to the difficulty!

I'm almost wishing I had known about this challenge a month ago because there are a few books I would have held back from February! 

I'm going to tag my relevant Literary Flits reviews throughout March so all the challenge books I read will be labelled IndieAthon. I'll also update this post to list them all in one place, linked to their reviews when the posts are published. Unlinked book titles are ones I plan to read.

Wish me luck!

  1. I love the addition of the Bingo card; it's one of those instances were increased difficulty means increased fun.

    1. I hope so! I enjoyed trawling through my unread indie books to find ones that fit the categories. Now I just need to read all these in time :-)

  2. I love the titles of some of these books... they sound like fun! Did you get these off of Amazon or from the authors... Anyway happy reading! I love jumping into an indie book and just going with it and falling in love with the story... it’s not always that way but so, so good when it is!

    1. These books are from all over the place! Some bought from Amazon, some NetGalley and blog tours, some Smashwords, some direct from authors. I'm hoping to clear a chunk of my TBR backlog with this challenge!

  3. Thank you for linking me! :D I haven't heard of any of these books, but I hope you'll get to read many and enjoy them :)

    1. and Thank You for helping me find this challenge! It's fun!
