22 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 I'm still (165 books and a novella) over a month ahead of track (139).

I've now read all 18 of the Marcus Didius Falco mysteries that have been published so far. According to the author's website, the 19th book - Alexandria - will be published next year in both the US and the UK. And she's already promised a 20th, presumably to come out in 2010. I can't wait....

The four Newbery Medal winners bring my total thus far up to 62 of 87. (And the one Carnegie Medal winner brings me up to seven of 69.)
