Book list - Apr 09

The Wonga Coup - African history, by Adam Roberts
The Dogs of War - thriller, by Frederick Forsyth *
Tulku - YA historical fiction, by Peter Dickinson (Carnegie Medal, 1979)
Dragon Mage - fantasy, by Andre Norton and Jean Rabe
River Boy - YA, by Tim Bowler (Carnegie Medal, 1997)
The Science Fiction Hall of Fame: Volume One, 1929-1964 - SF (short stories), edited by Robert Silverberg

Emmy and the Incredible Shrinking Rat - children's, by Lynne Jonell
Invincible Louisa: The Story of the Author of Little Women - children's biography, by Cornelia Meigs (Newbery Medal, 1934)

Only nine books this month (one being a reread) - got held up by reading a couple of books with 400+ pages. To reach my goal of 209 books this year, I'll have to average 17.417 per month, so I'm currently (50) over a month behind track (69). No fear....

The one Newbery Medal winner bring my total thus far up to 76 of 88, and the two Carnegie Medal winners bring me up to 16 of 69.
