August Books!

Once again I haven't been keeping track of what I'm reading, so here's my August catch-up post. What have I finished in the past few weeks?
What am I reading right now? Too many things!
  • Rot and Ruin, Jonathan Maberry. a Cybils book
  • Started Early, Took My Dog, Kate Atkinson.
  • Keeper, Kathi Appelt.  From the next library shelf.
  • I Now Pronounce You Someone Else, Erin McCahan. Cybils YA book, but so scary I took a break to read the Zombie one instead (teen marriages -- EEK).
  • Buffy, Ballads, and Bad Guys Who Sing, ed by Kendra Leonard.  Essays on music in the Whedonverse.
  • Dakota Ambush, by William Johnstone. Or I would be reading this if I could find it...
  • and a bunch of books I'm poking at but not really making progress with.
What will I read next? I'm working on a pile of almost-due library books. Some are for challenges, which leads me to my challenge status:

A-Z: 41/52. I can't believe I haven't read any authors with names starting with "N."
Cybils: 56/76. And I'm reading two more right now.
Global Reading Challenge:12/21. Hmm, this one needs work.
Read Around the World: 19/20. One more that I'll review and then put up.
Science Book Challenge: 2.141/3.141... When I review Seven Daughters of Eve I'll add that in. 
Stream: 3/3, 1/3, 3/3, 3/3.  I have to figure out how to register myself as done.
Take a Chance: 7/10. I'm picking through the Economist's list for #4.  And I have a library recommend for #1.
20/11: 19/20. If I review a book I've bought new, I'm done! But I haven't reviewed any of them.  Oops.
What's In a Name?: 5/6.  Just finished one!  And I got a better Evil book.
Where Am I Reading?: 28/50. Stupid Dakota book is still missing!  And now I have three Tennessee books.
