October 2021 Summary: 11/01/21

Reading report

October was probably the most normal month we've had since March 2020. No more quarantines, a regular work schedule for Ian, and some well needed rainy weather. We even had some trick-or-treaters on Halloween — though not at pre-COVID numbers. Maybe next year.

I read more books in October, 22, up from 20 in the previous month. Of my October read books, fifteen were diverse. As my reading has slowed to the point I can no longer maintain enough of a backlog to review every day regardless of what I read in a month, I had to switch to posting reviews only on days when I finish reading a book. In October I reviewed 21 books, down, from 27 the previous month. On the reviews front, fourteen qualified. Seven read books were queer and eight reviewed were.

I have 22 books of the 256 books read this year to review.
