So what is my indie scorecard?


In 2012 I was 62.71% indie!

Figures for 2011:
32/59 books = 54.24%

For 2013, I have set myself some reading challenges which will probably result in a lesser mix of independent reads. I will still endeavour to complete a minimum of 34 reviews over the course of the year.
