2016 Reading Challenge

Although the real challenge I'm setting myself is to read and review at least one book a week, so 52 books altogether, I have a list of authors and types of authors I want to work into the challenge.  I actually made up an Ultimate Book Challenge list that has something like 200 categories, equaling 212 books, but this year I'll just go for the author categories.
