A -Very- Late 2015 Year in Review

At the beginning of 2015, I made a post about my reading goals. On this page I am going to be updating my progress, and it is going to be looking very blank until I start reading a bunch for the year.
Update February 18: I have decided that each book can only go towards Challenge 1, and one other challenge, so when I read A Storm of Swords it only went towards Challenge 1 and Challenge 6 even though it was applicable to Challenge 5. Basically I am making this as hard for myself as possible. :)
