Reading Roundup Wrapup: April 2013

Pick of the month: The Treason of Isengard by J. R. R. Tolkien. Not my favorite installment of The Lord of the Rings so far, but a good one in a month where I didn't read a whole lot. Gimli is awesome, Aragorn sings, Merry and Pippin actually do something smart. What's not to like?
