I'd had high hopes for getting a lot read this month, but it just didn't happen. You know, life and all. Oh well. Definitely read some stuff I loved (Maurice, House of Stone, my first de Lint short story, etc.), and as DesLily said "...the 'numbers' don't mean that much to me anyway...just as long as I enjoy what I do read."
