April Wrap-Up

I finished 17 books in April. I have to credit the start of the booklikes-opoly game and some time off for letting me ramp up my reading. In previous months, I've only managed 11 or 12. By summarizing the books here, I can see that I had quite a few good books although no really awesome ones.
