I thought this was going to be a mediocre month, because I got severely bogged down in a 1001 books list book for over 2 weeks. And I finished it on May 1, so it shows up next month! It turns out the first 2 weeks of the month were much better, and I had already forgotten. Which is why I keep lists in the first place....
