18 books last month, with three 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 still a little ahead of track.

The seven Carnegie Medal winners bring me up to 35 of 70 - halfway there! My thanks to the Wamogo Library, Litchfield CT; the San Jose College Library, San Jose CA; the Licia and Mason Beekley Community Library, New Hartford CT; the Penfield Libary, SUNY Oswego; the Mark Twain Library, Redding CT; and the Boston Athenaeum for the ILLs.
