March 2020 Summary: 04/01/20

Reading report

March was a change to a new (and hopefully temporary) normal. We started the month with COVID-19 being a steady headline and Italy being hard hit by the virus. By March 13th we got word that the Bay Area counties would shelter in place until April 10th. That date was quickly extended to May and now it looks like it will go on to June.

I read fewer books in March, 23, down from February's 35. I made my my diverse reading goal. It was my best month for reading diversely this year.

On the reviews front, I also had an excellent month, with twenty books qualifying.

I now have 2018, 2019, and 2020 read books to post on my blog. My reviews to post from 2018 is down to 18 from 21, and my 2019 books to review are down to 34 from 48. This year's books are at 42 of the 99 books read.
