Previous month's book sources

March was the start of the shelter in place order because of COVID-19. It started out with us picking up our puppy but by the end of the first week it was clear we would be sheltering in place. The official order came on the 13th and has been extended through June something.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In March I read 12 TBR books. I also read four books published in February. Four books were for research. Two were from the library. My ROOB score was slightly higher but by an insignificant amount (-2.36 vs February's -2.38).

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

March 2020, the ROOB trendline continues downwards. The actual graph though from February to March is nearly flat. With library books out of the picture for COVID-19, I predict a lowering of the curve for April.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for March decreased slightly from -2.20 to -2.21.

That's not bad, my March was disastrous by comparison which seems to be an oxymoron given theoretically we should have more time.

I am spending a lot of free time playing Animal Crossing, painting, and catching up with sleep.
