3. The challenge is from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.
4. Books must be at least 175 pages long. They may be any genre (unless specified in a task) and in any format (audiobook, ebook, hardcover/paperback).
5. If a task refers to the title, the subtitle doesn’t count unless specified. Be careful and make sure you read the instructions carefully.
6. If a task refers to the cover, it will be based on the cover of the issue you decide to read.
