Reading Through Time Challenge

This challenge is to read books from a selection of time periods. Each book should be from a different time period, with a target of 12 books for the year. The time periods selected are up to the reader. The time periods I am planning on reading are listed below (subject to change as I think of different times but will be prior to my birth).
