Mostly this month was a good reading month. One week was a little disturbed by my attendance at two conferences about children's and young adult books. The conferences were great but they added to my TBR stack rather than allowing me to reduce it.

I also did not do well on reading books that have been on the TBR stack for a while for the Bottoms Up Challenge. I also only read one book on my Kindle this month. I just have one more e-book to read to complete that challenge and raise the number of completed challenges from one to two. I did complete the In the Middle Challenge this month but I am still going to keep track of the number of middle grade books I read.
