Reading Challenge 2016

I've never been one to participate in reading challenges. The one exception is the Witches and Witchcraft Reading Challenge sponsored by Melissa's Eclectic Bookshelf. However, this year I created a reading challenge for members of my local chapter of Sisters in Crime, Murder on Ice. I thought I'd offer up the challenge to you too. There's no prize. This is just an exercise to expand your reading. Complete as much or as little as you'd like. I'd love to hear periodic updates and your final results. What do you think of this challenge?
