#LetsReadIndie Reading Challenge 2017 Sign Ups

Posted January 2, 2017 by Tina in As Told by Tina / 2 Comments

RaeAnne and I are happy to announce that we will be hosting #LetsReadIndie a Indie reading challenge. The challenge begins on January 1, 2017 – December 31, 2017. We decided to come together to create an Indie reading challenge to help us support and discover new Indie authors.

What Is #LetsReadIndie?

The purpose of #LetsReadIndie is to support Indie authors. As you know, self published authors don’t get the love they deserve. RaeAnne and I would love to help you discover those Indie authors who we love and adore or even just recently discovered.


The rules are simple and we tried to keep it as open as possible but if you have any questions you can let me or RaeAnne know.

  • Read at least 1 Indie book a month (it doesn’t matter the genre just make sure it is indie).
  • Review at least 1 Indie Book a month in order to qualify for the giveaway that we are hosting! We will have linky posted on our blogs at the end of each month.
  • The books you read can either be ebook, audio, physical or ARCs.

Goals & Badges

We only ask that you read 1 indie book per month but you can set your own personal goal to achieve any of the following badges to put on your blog. (Click here to download the pictures!)

1-10 – Intro to Indie Badge

11-20 – Indie Fan

21-30 – Indie Lover

31-40 Indie Hero

41 + Indie Obsessed

Twitter Chats / Hashtag

We thought one of the best ways to get readers more involved with the Indie community was to make a bingo card so that way you can find new authors in a variety of genres. You can just fill out one row or the whole card. It is up to you!

Because we’re both fans of bullet journals, we’ve also made a bullet journal spread (the one on the left)! It’s sized to fit in the Leuchtturm1917 A5 (or medium) journal! All you have to do is download it and print it–you can even print it on sticker paper to make putting it in your journal that much easier!


We haven’t decided on when we are going to have the giveaways but we will let you know. We are hoping to have a linky up every month so that you can link up at least 1 review to be eligible for the giveaway.

Other Cool Aspects of The Challenge!

Aside from hosting the challenge, RaeAnne and I are also working with authors to spotlight throughout the year. You can check our blogs and see authors of different genres and some may even donate prizes to go towards the giveaways. We’re still working out the details but we hope you stop by our blogs to check out some of the authors working with us!

If you are an indie author and would like to work with us please fill out the following form.

If you have any questions feel free to message/tweet etc. RaeAnne and I!

Please be sure to link up your goals so that we can cheer each other on!
