Twelve books last month, with only one reread (marked by an asterisk). I'm not setting an official goal this year, though I do expect to read around 150 books.

The three Carnegie Medal winners bring me up to 55 of 72. My thanks to the J Eugene Smith Library, Eastern Connecticut State College, Willimantic CT; the Connecticut State Library Library Service Centre, Willimantic CT; and the Fletcher Memorial Library, Hampton CT, for the ILLs.
