Previous month's book sources

February was back to normal except for preparing for our new puppy. Also I was busy setting up my Etsy shop.

ROOB Score for the last three years

Like January, I read sixteen TBR books. I also read five published in February. As it's still early in the year, there's no easy way to stay current with purchases without having a hit against the ROOB score. Five books were for research. Eight were from the library. My ROOB score was slightly lower but by an insignificant amount (-2.38 vs January's -2.31).

ROOB score mapped year after year to compare trends

February 2020, the ROOB trendline continues downwards. February 2020 was the in the middle for February ROOB scores since I started tracking these metrics. March should also trend downards slightly.

ROOB monthly averages

My average for February increased slightly from -2.45 to -2.44.
