March 2017 Inclusive Reading Report: 04/02/17
As with last month, I am continuing to include white male authors in this list, if they are from a different country (not the United States). This may seem to inflate my numbers but at the moment I feel it's the easiest way to keep the focus on expanding my horizons as a reader beyond the white, middle class, American perspective.
I have my allergies more or less under control which means I'm feeling more alert for reading and blogging. Our plans to move have been redirected from an international move to a local one. We just rented a storage area to put our home library as we get it boxed up.
My reading totals were up in March from February but my inclusive reading is still out numbered by non-inclusive reading. The breakdown is 45 percent to 55 percent.
Reviews though crossed the threshold, with more reviews featuring a diverse range of authors and characters. Fifty-eight percent of all the books I reviewed in March were inclusive.
Looking into April, I suspect my inclusive reading will suffer as I continue to concentrate on reading and weeding my personal collection. Most of the diverse reading will be of newly published books I pick up.

Same to you.
