The Good: Got eight debuts read!

The Bad: Read only 31 books this month. My reading hampered a bit by eighth grade trip to Washington, DC, where little reading was done. You know, wrangling 130 eighth graders in the 90+ degree heat for 15 hours each day doesn't leave a lot of time to read. It was a great trip though.
