18 books last month, with two rereads (marked by asterisks). To reach my goal of 210 books this year, I have to average 17.5 per month, so I'm currently slightly ahead of track (55 of 52.5).

The three Carnegie Medal winners bring me up to 28 of 70. My thanks to the Bedford Public Library, Bedford IN; the Herrick Memorial Library, Alfred University, Alfred NY; and the Westport Public Library, Westport CT, for the ILLs.
