Reading Roundup August 2008

This was a low month for kids' books, because I went on vacation and took a stack of Jennifer Crusie novels, which are great fun for anyone over the age of eighteen. However, what I did read was good stuff. The tweens category especially had me tearing my hair out, trying to pick just one standout. I've done ties before, but I think a six-way tie is a bit much, don't you?
