September 2021 Sources: 10/02/21

Previous month's book sources

We're on our second ten day quarantine for our youngest. The first one made sense in that she was exposed and had symptoms (but later tested negative). This time she has stupidly been sent home for a reaction to a flu vaccine.

September forced me to cut back on how often I post reviews. I have now a very slim margin of books read and reviewed from what I used to have. Fifteen years ago I had a backlog of four hundred reviews that needed posting. Now I have seventeen.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In September I read 16 TBR books, down from August's 20 TBR. I read zero books published in September. Two books were for research. One book was a review book. The lack of new books lowered my score from -3.81 to -4.6. It's the same score I had in July of this year. It was my best September in 12 years of tracking this metric.

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

I suspect my October ROOB score might dip lower than -4.6.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for September improved from -2.53 to -2.71.
