September 2018 Sources: 10/02/18
September saw a return to primarily reading my own books. The majority of these books were published prior to September. The exceptions being The Great Shelby Holmes and the Coldest Case by Elizabeth Eulberg, Weather or Not by Sarah Mlynowski and The Million by Karl Schroeder. However, since The Million was read for the road narrative project, it doesn't count against my ROOB score.
In terms of numbers read, I had another light month, though not as light as the previous bunch. I read three more than I did in August (twenty-five). With two new books, my ROOB score was higher than it could have been, but was still my lowest (best) September score since keeping track, at -2.96.
The trend line has begun to dip towards the negative. I'm curious to see how the Cybils reading will affect that.
Looking at all previous years, September 2018 is the lowest (best) September I've had since keeping track in 2010.
Even with the two new books purchased and read in September, my average for September dropped from -2.46 to -2.56.
In September my monthly average improved from -2.26 to -2.33.
