19.5 books read. Most of the evening was feeding children and myself, but I managed to get a few books read in the interim while my kids played. Favorite: Doreen Cronin's Chicken Squad (awesome!). I also updated all my Cybils entries and put a few more on hold. ILL, I do love thee. Now my dishes are washed, my kids are asleep and I'm sitting in front of another big stack of picture books. Trying very hard not to think about my manuscript that's just five chapters from being done... no, this is important too.
