Only 12 books this month; asterisks mark the two rereads. To reach my goal of 208 books this year I need to average 17.33 per month, so even though I fell short this month I'm still (124 books plus a novella) over a month ahead of track (104).

The three Newbery Medal winners bring my total thus far up to 52 of 87.
