September 2021 Summary: 10/01/21
September was punctuated with two quarantines from high school for our youngest. The first one was the scariest as there was a genuine COVID exposure. The second one was paranoia on the part of the administration when she was slightly dizzy from her flu shot. Dizziness is not on the list of COVID symptoms but she's stuck home until October 8th.
I read fewer books in September, 20, down from 27 in the previous month. Of my September read books, fourteen were diverse. On the reviews front, sixteen qualified. Of those read, six were queer. Of the reviewed books, six were.
September was the month where I had to accept that I no longer had enough read books in backlog to keep up with a daily posting routine. So for the first time in fifteen years, I am only posting reviews on days when I actually finish a book. I have 22 books of the 213 books read this year to review.
