August Reads

Holy frijoles, batman!  I read a lot in August.  Somehow I managed to read 110 books!  This is partially due to fewer programs, and partially due to a ton of new picture books arriving at the library.  As to be expected, several titles I rated five stars on Goodreads.  Those are in bold.
