23 books this month; asterisks mark the four rereads. This brings me up to 34 books for the year, just below target (34.66) for my goal of reading 208 books this year.

Pee-Wee Harris was originally published in 1922, the first in a series. I downloaded it from Gutenberg; I already have the second book downloaded (as well as other old books) and standing by.

The one Newbery Medal winner brings my total thus far up to 44 of 87. Halfway there!
