January 2022 Sources: 02/02/22

Previous month's book sources

The slides scanning project and my art are two things taking higher priority than reading. Therefore I've lowered my goal this year to 200 from 300.

ROOB Score for the last three years

In January I read 11 TBR books, down from December's 26 TBR. I read five books published in January. Three books were for research. One was from the library. The five new books raised my score from -4.28 to -1.8, my highest score (meaning worst) in the last three years. It isn't, though, my worst January in all twelve years of tracking.

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

I under estimated my score for January, predicting something in the -2.5 to -3 range. For February I am sticking with last month's prediction: -2.5.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for January worsened slightly from -2.43 to -2.38.
