Sixteen books last month, with eight rereads (marked by asterisks). To reach my goal of 210 books this year, I have to average 17.5 per month; I may not be able to catch up.

The two Carnegie Medal winners bring me up to 42 of 71. My thanks to the Eastern Connecticut State College Library, Willimantic CT, and the Andover Public Library, Andover CT, for the ILLs.

The Armour book could also be classified as military history. The full title, for those who have time to read it, is It All Started with Stones and Clubs: Being a Short History of War and Weaponry From Earliest Times to the Present, Noting the Gratifying Progress Made by Man Since His First Crude, Small-Scale Efforts to Do Away with Those Who Disagreed with Him.
