October 2020 Sources: 11/02/20

Previous month's book sources

October was the seventh 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. We voted early by mail and so did our now adult daughter.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In October I read 18 TBR books, up from September's 15 TBR. I also read 2 published in October. Eighteen books were for research, up from the last month's 13. None were from the library. The higher number of TBR books brought my ROOB score down from -3.10 to -3.67. Like September, October was my second best score for that month.

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

With the year wrapping up my focus is turning more towards 2020 published books but I am also still working through my 2018 and 2019 purchases, as well as books received through Paperback Swap. November tends to be low for me, so we'll see what happens.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for October improved slightly from -2.01 to -2.16.
