Read Our Own Books May 2017: 06/04/17
The local move plan continues. We've boxed up about two-thirds of our books.are now in storage. We've met with our realtor. We have plans to move into a local apartment complex while our house is put on the market. On our current timeline, we'll be in our new home by Christmas.
I continue to prioritize reading my own books, though now in June with most of the books being put into storage, I am relying more and more on ebooks and library books. I suspect my June roundup will be back to my old reading schedule — namely mostly library books.
The total number of books I managed to read last month is down from previous months. Like March, though, reading from my personal collection accounted for 55 percent of what I read.
With my concentration being on older books in my collection, TBRs dominated my reading My ROOB average for June dropped to an impressive -3.84 — my best ROOB score since I started tracking this metric. My month average for May also improved, dropping to -2.54 from -2.35.
Last month I predicted that I would have a poor May ROOB score because of all the purchases I made when my husband was on vacation. I still have most of those books to read. They will be my summer reading while we're in our temporary housing.
