October book sources

October was another "normal" schedule for me. I divided my time between painting/drawing/photography, reading/blogging, and family/chores/errands. I didn't visit the library (except to drop off some old medication), thus all my books were sourced from purchases both for pleasure and research reading.

ROOB Score for the last three years

I read twenty TBR books books published this year and one published in October. Ten books were for research. This month's ROOB score is my best ever in the absence of any library books, even better than September's.

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

Ten months in, the ROOB trendline continues downwards. October 2019 was the best ROOB score since I started tracking these metrics. I am hopeful that November will beat it.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for October improved from -1.79 to -2.01.
