June 2021 Sources: 07/02/21

Previous month's book sources

June was the fifteenth full month of shelter in place for COVID-19 precautions. No word yet on when Ian's parents will be able to visit.

June continued my revised way of scheduling reviews. It seems to working for me except that I'm down to under a month of surplus reviews. Even with the new schedule I'm struggling to keep up.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In June I read 16 TBR books, down from May's 18 TBR. I read zero books released last month. Four books were for research. There were no review copies. None were from the library. The lack of new and library books improved from score from -4.0 to -4.6 That said, it was my best month ever in twelve years of tracking.

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

July will continue to have a mixture of new and previously month's books. As I'm running even with reading for what I'm reviewing, I predict another low score, maybe around -4.30.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for June improved from -2.81 to -2.96.
