October 2018 Sources: 11/02/18
I had this post mostly written when my computer froze up and deleted everything. This second attempt will unfortunately be shorter and testier.
October is the start of first round Cybils reading. That means more library books. Some of the Cybils books I had already purchased for my own fun reading. Many of the Cybils books also qualified for my research project. Those that count for the project I've put into the research category.
October's reading numbers were up from the previous months. I read thirty-seven (originally miscounted as thirty-eight). I read two brand-new books which brought my numbers down. It was one of my best Octobers but only middle of the road for this year at -2.37.
The October reading stats are nearly identical to the trend line. This past October is slightly higher than the trend line.
Looking at all previous years, October 2018 is the second lowest (best) one I've had.
Even with the two new books purchased and read in October, my average for October dropped from -1.72 to -1.79.
