Month 3 of the Bennett D. Katz Library 2016 Reading Challenge is upon us!

Inspired by Women’s History Month and March Madness this month’s options are a book written by a female author or a sports related book. Have you made your choice yet?

We put together a list of suggestions you might want to try, but did you know there is a place called “Listopia” in Goodreads where you can search for lists on just about any topic?  For example, we searched “female authors” and it came up with lists containing hundreds of options!

You can find these books using URSUS and if we don’t have them here they can be sent to us by using the “Request” function and by entering your name and library bar code number!
