challenge completed

I found this reading challenge at the end of 2014 and I actually completed it this year! *pats self on back* It was pretty difficult to find books that I wanted to read that fit every category. I did end up cheating a bit (see Cheats section). But overall, I feel it's a pretty grand accomplishment.
