April 2020 Sources: 05/02/20

Previous month's book sources

April was a full month of shelter in place for COVID-19 precautions, and May will be too. Time at home was divided up between caring for the puppy, painting, playing video games, chores and finally reading.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In April, like March, I read 12 TBR books. I also read two books published in April. Four books were for research. None were from the library. My ROOB score was the second best April, down significantly from the previous month (-3.42 vs March's -2.36).

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

April 2020, the ROOB trendline continues downwards. April is much lower (meaning better) than March and February. With library books out of the picture for COVID-19, I predict a continued low ROOB score for May.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for March decreased nicely from -2.25 to -2.36.
