June 2020 Sources: 07/02/20

Previous month's book sources

June was the third full month of shelter in place for COVID-19 precautions. Although there were some soft-openings, with COVID infection rates spiking, July is looking like a return to April and May closures. Time at home was still caring for puppy, painting, playing video games, chores, reading, and now reading through the news.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In June I read 16 TBR books, up from May's 12 TBR. I also read four books published in June. Eight books were for research. None were from the library. The higher TBR number resulted in a slightly better ROOB score, dropping from -2.59 to -2.86. That score is the middle for June scores.

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

June 2020, the ROOB trendline continues downwards. June is lower (meaning better) than May and but higher than April, though lower than January-March. Too many things are in flux right now to make a prediction for July's score.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for June improved slightly from -2.80 to -2.81.
