May 2020 Summary: 06/01/20
May continued the COVID-19 shelter in place. The bookstore is now doing drop off pick-ups at a nearby coffee shop. It feels like we're buying through a black market. I email the bookstore owner. Every two weeks she emails with a list of what books have come in and the cost of the purchase. I write a check which I then give to the coffee shop owner while I order my coffee to go. June now enters in a new reality. It's one of protests, riots, looting, burning buildings and now a countywide curfew.
I read more books in May, 29, up from April's 19. I made my diverse reading goal. It was on par with April's accomplishment for reading diversely, just with more books.
On the reviews front, I also had a good month, with eighteen 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 13 from 15, and my 2019 books to review are down to 16 from 25. This year's books are at 55 of the 150 books read.
