2014 Category Challenge

Challenge Summary: Welcome to the 2014 Category Challenge!

The idea is to read books from different categories, to chat about what you read, and to inflict bookbullets on your fellow challengers. Tradition dictates that it should be 14 categories this year, but that is in no way a requirement. They can be any categories you want and you can read as many books as you want from each category. Or you can do something completely different - the parameters are intentionally very wide.
