  1. That looks like a nice full month with impressive variety. I more often follow a thread, so you might find, say, three books on a particular Civil War battle or four C.S. Lewis all bunched together. But then the thread runs out. Of the books listed, I’ve read five of the nine, and the Penn is on the TBR table. Much more overlap than normal.

  2. I’ve read four, and am reading two more.
