This challenge is from March 1st to March 31st.

I don't know about you all, but I'm in a bit of a reading slump. It could be that February wasn't a great reading month for me what with finishing only one book! It could also be the cold that's been going around our house and my current back injury (pulled a muscle).

I have been really busy in February and I apologize for this late post of the monthly challenge.

Rules (besides the usual) is to read any book that wasn't published this year (2016) with these categories.

And the categories are....
