2016 Challenge

I have started to put together the book I am going to read for 2016.  Last year, I ended up changing a few books in the categories in the end due to finding something that fit a little better, or something I really wanted to read that fit a category.....

But I like to start with an idea.  I am a Type AAA person, and I need to have a plan.  I am flexible in changing plans, but I have to have a plan.

If you click on the name of the book - it will lead you to the Amazon link for the book (if you are interested in reading what the book is about).  I am also open for suggestions, so if you have read any of the books and you hated them - leave me a comment).

The rules of the challenge are simple.  You pick the books, BUT - they have to be a book you have not read before and you have not seen the movie (if it exists).
