August 2019 Summary: 09/01/19

Reading report

August was the first quiet month this summer, although the end of the month was back to school. The month meant a return to routine, including painting (I finished two and started a third), reading and blogging.

Last month I read entirely from my personal collection — including ones read for research. I continue to be avoiding the library to focus on books I've purchased in the last year. I will start up my library trips in January.

I read more books in August, 26, up from the previous months' 20. I made my my diverse reading goal. In fact it was one of my best month's this year. I also made my diverse reviewing goal.

September is the first full month of school. That will mean more school related errands. I might also have field trips to teach at work. That said, I think September will be a good month of reading.

I still have 2 reviews from 2016 reviews to post. That's down from last month's 3. My 2017 reviews are down to 4 from 6. I still 31 reviews remaining from 2018, and 66, dwom from 68, now from 2019.
