August in a Thumbnail: 7294 pages (500 more than July), 24 books (same as July, and given the amount of time Dark Age took I'm happy about that), Average Rating of 3.9—which is not shabby. But 6 5-Star books??!?!? I'm either getting really soft, or I had an incredible month (my reflex is to guess I'm getting soft, but I'd defend every one of those).

 

Here's what happened here in August.
