October 2018 Summary: 11/01/18

Reading report

Nominations for Cybils come in two partsin October. The first through the fifteenth are for the public to nominate. Then comes a ten day period ending on the twenty-fifth where publishers and authors can self nominate. Once the nominations begin rolling in and are approved, the reading begins.

Because of Cybils, my October numbers are up from August and September. I read a total of thirty-eight books, up thirteen from the previous month.

With the first month of Cybils over, I have thirty-seven books out from the library. Of that, twenty-one of them are specifically for the Cybils.

October's reading was thirteen higher than September's. Twice as many books that I read were by Writers of Color, Native, or from other countries. Nearly twice as many reviews were equally diverse.

With the year wrapping up, most of the review slots will be going to newly published books. My gap numbers will grow in November and December and by January I may very well still have some stragglers from 2016. At the moment I have twenty-three reviews leftover from 2016 and twenty-four from last year. From 2018 I have ninety-two, again a reflection of reading for the Cybils.
