August 2021 Sources: 09/02/21
My husband is back at working in the office but it's not mandatory yet. The mandatory return date has been pushed back from sometime in September to January because of the Delta variant. Our youngest daughter is back at in person school. As she's in high school and fully vaxxed we're not too worried. That said, after the first week of class, there are already seven confirmed cases of COVID. This is at a school with a vaccination mandate, high vaccination rates, and required masking.
August forced me to reconsider my revised review schedule. While alternating types of books was good on paper in reality it was impossible to keep up with. I will continue to alternate in my reading but now I'm picking reviews based on my whim of the night. There just isn't enough of a backlog to be more stringent with scheduling.
In August I read 20 TBR books, up from July's 19 TBR. I read two books released last month. Five books were for research. None were review books or library books. The new ones book raised my score from -3.97 to -3.81. It was my second best August in twelve years of tracking, with last August being my best.
I suspect my September ROOB score will remain around 3.8.
My average for August improved from -2.83 to -2.91.
