17 books last month, with three rereads (marked by asterisks). To reach my goal of 210 books this year, I'll have to read 34 in December, and that's not going to happen unless I'm stuck in bed for a week or two. Oh, well....

The three Carnegie Medal winners bring me up to 47 of 71. My thanks to the Wilton Library Association, Wilton CT; the McAlester Public Library, McAlester OK; and the Southern Connecticut State University Library, New Haven CT, for the ILLs.
