August 2021 Summary: 09/01/21

Reading report

August continued with the cautious reopening of things. Schools went back for in person learning. That means I have the place to myself during the day. I have to relearn the pre-COVID schedules. COVID is still around and Delta variant is something to be concerned about.

I read fewer books in August, 27, down from 30 in the previous month. Of my August read books, fifteen were diverse. On the reviews front, nineteen qualified, meaning I didn't make my goal. Of those read, seven were queer. Of the reviewed books, seven were.

I have 26 books of the 213 books read this year to review. I am basically running in place now between books read and reviews posted.
