December 2017 Summary: 01/06/17

Inclusive reading report

December, except for the Cybils was quiet. We had Christmas at home and invited our family for New Year's Eve. We also all caught the flu and spent a lot of time in bed either sleeping or reading or just feeling miserable.

December continued the trend of diverse book being the majority of the month's reading. That said, this majority was smaller than previous months. Most of the reading in December was determined by last minute books read for the Cybils.

Reviews for the month fell short of my goal to include a majority of diverse books. Part of that stems from trying to work through as much of the backlog of reviews.

January continues on the path of scheduling I started over the summer, though with a couple changes. First is that Sundays are devoted to backlist books. First, that means the remaining reviews.

I have twenty-three from 2015 that I would like get posted soon. Next priority is the sixty-five from 2016, and finally the eighty-three from last year. Baring no other reading, that would mean nearly six months of just posting old reviews. Of course that's not going to happen. With my plan to devote Saturdays to new publications, I would need seven months for the remaining reviews. Keeping in mind my Canadian book reviews, on Tuesdays, I'm more realistically looking at eight months to clear out the entire backlog.
