17 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 (198 books and a novella) over a month ahead of track (174).

The five Newbery Medal winners bring my total thus far up to 68 of 87, and the four Carnegie Medal winners bring me up to 11 of 69.
