26 books and one novella this month, with no rereads (though I have read the original novella "Eifelheim," published in Analog in 1986, which was expanded into the novel). To reach my goal of 208 books this year I need to read 17.33 per month, so I'm now (94, including the novella) well ahead of track (69).

The three Newbery Medal winners bring my total thus far up to 48 of 87.
