14 books this month, with no rereads. To reach my goal of 209 books this year, I'll have to average 17.417 per month, so I'm currently a little behind track, but I have faith in my ability to catch up.

The one Newbery Medal winner brings my total thus far up to 71 of 88; I'm still at 13 of 69 Carnegie Medal winners.
