August 2020 Summary: 09/01/20

Reading report

August continued the COVID-19 shelter in place. Our oldest had her eighteenth birthday and with Ian's help, moved to a studio apartment near her college. The classes will be all on line but there are other things she needs access to. She's doing well and we text nearly every day. Meanwhile our youngest has started high school, also completely online.

I read fewer books in August, 24, down from 28 in the previous two months. Thirteen books of my read books met the diverse reading goal. On the reviews front, I also had a good month, with twenty books qualifying.

I still have 2018, 2019, and 2020 read books to post on my blog. My reviews to post from 2018 is down to 6 from 8, and my 2019 books to review are down to 5 from 8. This year's books are at 58 of the 233 books read.
