February 2019 Summary: 03/01/19

Reading report

February was also busy with art. I finished the sketchbook and mailed it back in the last week of the month. Now my art time is divided between two projects: a series of gouache pieces inspired by last year's fires, and planning bird and dinosaur crafts for summer camp.

When I am reading, I'm reading either newly purchased books, last year's remainders, or library books for the summer camp.

I read 25 books in February, down from January's 27. I surpassed my 51% goal for diverse reading, with 72% 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 57% of them featuring diverse characters and/or authors.

With two months of 2019 complete, I still have 13 reviews from 2016 reviews to post. That's down from last month's 15. My 2017 reviews though are at similarly small numbers as the remaining 2016, coming in at 16. I have 63 reviews remaining from 2018 and 36 now from 2019.
