February 2018 Sources: 03/03/18
February started with my husband on a business trip, meaning I was keeping up early to get our oldest to his zero period class, plus doing all the chauffeuring for both kids. It wasn't all that bad, just meant getting up earlier. If only I could have gotten to sleep at a reasonable time at night. Insomnia though didn't let me. So what do you do? You read.
Despite continuing with my read a new book each week, most of which I'm purchasing, my February score was better than January's. It fell from -1.69 to -2.15. This February was my second lowest for the last three years.
Looking at all previous years, February 2018 is right in the middle. February is where I really start to get into gear for a new year of reading. I'm trying to get through older books on my shelf but I'm also starting to get a hold of the newly published titles.
The new books though did make an impact on the monthly average, though just a slight one. The ROOB average for February rose from -2.38 to -2.35
March has five new books scheduled, where they will be purchased and read in the same month. That will probably continue to push the ROOB score up towards a positive number.
