  3. Award Winner (World Fantasy Award, Gemmel Award, Locus etc. any year)
  4. Religion Theme
  5. Political/Court Intrigue
  6. Military
  7. Young Adult/Throwback
  8. Media Tie In (Book that was made into a TV Show or Movie)
  9. Written by more than one author
  10. Epic (more than 500 pages)
  11. Quick Read (less than 200 pages)
  12. Written by an Author with 3 names (EX Guy Kaverial Kay, Marion Zimmerman Bradley, David Alan Coe etc.)

This looks good.  Short stories?  Course, that would be more than one author, so they're covered.  I'd probably do six or so, unless I got ambitious.

Thanks for doing this!

Absolutely!  Great choices.  Can we use the books we've already read or will this be all books starting from March 1st type of thing?

I think any books you read in 2016 thus far should work.
