July 2020 Sources: 08/02/20
July was the fourth full month of shelter in place for COVID-19 precautions. Time at home was still caring for puppy, painting, playing video games, chores, reading, and now reading through the news. Later this month our oldest will be moving to Los Angeles to start college and that has added a new layer of worry.
In August I read 16 TBR books, down from July's 19 TBR. But I read no books published in August. Like July, eight books were for research. None were from the library. The lack of new books resulted in my best ROOB score ever, dropping from -4.03 to -4.33. That score out does all previous scores.
July 2020, the ROOB trendline continues downwards. I am continuing to focus on reading through my 2018 and 2019 purchases. Hopefully that will mean another low month, although it probably won't be as low as July's.
My average for July improved slightly from -2.75 to -2.86.
