Twenty books this month. (Having a week off work helped.) Clarke and the four Norton books were the only rereads; all the others were new to me.

Up to seventeen (of 86) Newbery Medal books now. Just for the record, the eight I had already read are:
The Voyages of Doctor Dolittle, by Hugh Lofting (1923)
Rabbit Hill, by Robert Lawson (1945)
Strawberry Girl, by Lois Lenski (1946)
The Twenty-One Balloons, by William Pène du Bois (1948)
Ginger Pye, by Eleanor Estes (1952)
A Wrinkle in Time, by Madeleine L'Engle (1963)
It's Like This, Cat, by Emily Neville (1964)
From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, by E L Konigsburg (1968)
(At least, I'm pretty sure I've read Ginger Pye - I remember reading other books by Estes, though not that one specifically. Maybe I'll just go ahead and reread those eight while I'm at it....)
