July 2021 Sources: 08/02/21

Previous month's book sources

July ended shelter in place for my husband, for now. With the delta varient surging this might change. Ian parents are scheduled to visit this weekend. They are in the States, the first time since March 2020.

July continued my revised way of scheduling reviews. I am at about thirty books of surplus reviews and I'm definitely struggling to keep up.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In July I read 19 TBR books, up from June's 19 TBR. I read one book released last month. Ten books were for research. None were review books or library books. The one new book raised my score from -4.6 to -3.97. It was my second best July in twelve years of tracking, with last July being my best.

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

August will move more and more towards reflecting what I'm currently reading. That means my score will probably raise somewhat, maybe to a -3.5.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for July improved from -2.86 to -2.95.
