January 2020 Summary: 02/01/20

Reading report

January started off rough with illness but the back half was productive with painting, drawing, and reading. I have continued to use the library in limited fashion. I'm sticking to having one or two out a time. One book for full length and two for shorter, like picture books or graphic novels.

I read more books in January, 40, up from the previous months' 29. I made my my diverse reading goal. It wasn't as spectacular as previous months.

On the reviews front, I continued to mostly review diverse books. As I've worked through most of my backlog of reviews, the posted reviews closely mirror my monthly reading. January's ratio of diverse and not diverse wasn't as good as previous months either, but it did meet the stated goal.

I now 2018, 2019, and 2020 read books to post on my blog. My reviews to post from 2018 is down to 23 from 25, and my 2019 books to review are down to 59 from 72. This year's books stand at 21 reviews still to post of the 40 books read.
