October 2017 Sources: 11/10/17
October meant another move — to our new to us house. October also meant the start of the CYBILS, and reading for it. Being too busy to buy new books, meant I read books I already had on hand and of course, library books.
I read more library books this October compared to last year, but fewer books over all. My ROOB score ticked upwards. That's due to the library books out numbering all other forms of reading. That said, the ROOB score is still better than it was last October.
October's ROOB score is identical to what it was in 2012 and the lowest it's been since 2012. Not being able to buy new books kept the ROOB score lower than it otherwise would have been.
The monthly average for October dropped to -1.72 from -1.60. It's an improvement, but October still remains my worst ROOB month on average.
November is the month we have to get cracking on making our short lists for the CYBILS. I'm all moved in now (save for unpacking) and have no travel plans until next year. That means more time for reading. I am, however, also doing NANOWRIMO.
