Taking Stock - May

Oops! Here it is, June 2, and I'm only just realizing that May is over! Three more weeks of school left! Wow, did this year fly by! I was in NYC attending SLJ's Day of Dialog from early in the morning till evening and then was lucky to join some publishers for a preview dinner. I returned home via public transportation, laden with books at 10PM! Then spent the next day at school so when I got home yesterday afternoon, I was in a total fog!

Total posts this month:15
Total books read this month: 26
Total books read this year: 171

Audio: 7/34
Debut:  1/6
Picture Book: 13/79

The Good: Started the month with a bang but ended with a whimper.

The Bad: see above. Good thing I was nearly 30 books ahead on my GR challenge! Down to 22 books ahead. Still ahead but losing ground. Gotta doubledown.
