January 2019 Summary: 02/01/19
January has been busy with art. I have a sketchbook due in March and this month has been filled with planning the pages and now executing them. When I am reading, I'm dividing my time between reading through the books I bought last year but didn't get to and reading one newly published book each week for review.
Despite the deadline, I managed to read three more books than I did in December. That comes in as three fewer than a year ago.
I read 27 books in January, up from December's 24. I surpassed my 51% goal for diverse reading, with 63% of all the books I read qualifying. The majority of the books I read were from my own collection with the other half being divided between research and library books. My reviews were equally successful, coming in with 55% of them featuring diverse characters and/or authors.
With one month of 2019 complete, I still have 15 reviews from 2016 reviews to post. That's down from last month's 20. My 2017 reviews though are at similarly small numbers as the remaining 2016, coming in at 18. I have 78 reviews remaining from 2018 and 20 now from 2019.
