The Good: According to Goodreads, I am right on track for my 2013 Reading Challenge.

The Bad:  I did not read a debut this month. My posts fell way off (9) from last month and the number of books I got around to reviewing also fell. I read 39 but reviewed only 8. Yikes! There was a time when I reviewed every book I read and I'm still making my peace with not being able to do so.
