Tentative Reading List for the Keyword Challenge

I was going through my pile of books at the house to find some candidates for the 2013 Keyword Reading Challenge, and have a tentative list for the year.  It may change because I'm more enthusiastic about some of these choices than others.  I'll sporadically add links and updates to this as the challenge continues and I have reviewed novels, or as my reading list changes.
