DHASG December Challenge

Introduction: December is a chilly close to the year. We get ready to say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016. Let's close out our year with some good reading. Thank you so much for participating in a whole year of monthly challenges on the Dangerous Hero Addict Support Group.

1. Any member of the DHSAG can sign up for the challenge throughout the month November.
2. All books must be read between December 1st and December 31st.
3. A book may only be used once in the challenge.
4. Post or link to your final stats when you are completed.
5. In your stats, list book name, title and date read. Unless obvious, include why you choose a certain book in parentheses in your stats.
