January 2022 Summary: 02/01/22

Reading report

January started with my husband traveling for a week and catching COVID while on a layover in Phoenix. Fortunately he'd had his third shot so the symptoms were like the worst cold and sinus infection ever. The rest of us managed to avoid catching it.

I read fewer books in January, 23, down from 32 in the previous month. Of my January read books, 14 were diverse. I am still primarily reviewing on days I finish a book, although I had some days in January where I finished two books. For 2022, I have lowered my reading goal from 300 to 200 books and so far I am ahead of schedule. In January I reviewed 22 books, down, from 24 the previous month. On the reviews front, fifteen qualified. Five read and nine reviewed books were queer.

I have 20 books remaining from 2021 and 12 of the 23 books read in 2022 to review.
