August 2018 Summary: 09/01/18
August was the last month of summer vacation. It was also the month of the summer flu, with all of us getting mildly sick for about a week. Being sick means not being interested in reading — not even for audio books.
With being busy with back to school and with catching the flu, I had another light (for me) reading month with only twenty-two books completed. Although I finished a seven books published in 2018, none of them were released in August.
I currently have thirteen books due at the library. I'm trying to focus more on reading books I've already purchased. Of these, two have run out of renewals and must be read this month.
August's reading was one higher than July's. I did, however manage to meet my goal of having at least 50% of my books be by Writers of Color, Native, or from other countries. Eleven books counted towards that goal and ten did not. August's reviews also met the goal with sixteen of thirty books counting towards the goal.
At the start of July I had thirty-five reviews from 2016 to post; that's now down to twenty-eight. My 2017 reviews dropped by one to twenty-eight. My 2018 reviews rose slightly from seventy-six to eighty.
