Title Fight Reading Challenge 2016!

This one tempted me.  I'm not into boxing or sports in general, but the idea still seemed interesting. Only seven books are needed, so it won't take long.  Sign up here.

Title Fight Button 2016

* The Challenge will run from January 1st to December 31, 2016.
* Challengees must read at least one book from each category (listed below). Challengees must read a DIFFERENT book for each category – even if your book title might fit a number of categories, it will only count towards a single category. Challengees are free to choose which category best suits.
* Books selected can be from any genre and aimed at any age group. Picture books, anthologies, nonfiction, graphic novels and audiobooks are all okay to include.
* The categories listed are a loose guide and creative interpretation of the categories is not only encouraged, but applauded.
* Challengees should link their reviews/progress under the relevant linky lists on this page. If you don’t have a blog, you could link to your Goodreads shelf/reviews, or simply comment on this page as you go.
