Thanks to everyone who commented last week.
Q#406: Did your area have a stay-at-home order? Or are you considered an essential worker???
There were two commenters out of the US and one in the USA who did not have stay at home orders. Even there, two said that wearing masks were required and the other has had curfews.
The rest have had various degrees of stay at home requirements. Fredamans is a cashier and I agree with her that the customers should be wearing masks.
Sadly we are seeing an increase in cases with the relaxing of SAH restrictions.
It appears that many countries did flatten the curve so that the hospitals have not been overwhelmed and the percentages of deaths is not increasing. Still, each death is cause for sorrow and prayer.

Please let me know your choice by completing the WINNER FORM.
A similar question was asked in 2015 so it has been five years and we can look back to answer. (I'll put the older link in the answers next week.)
I think I started to shift to more sci fi (dystopia, post-apocalyptic, space military) a bit more than five years ago and that trend has continued. I do not read as much romance as I used to. However, I have added more nonfiction as I am reading one nonfiction a month.

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month, I draw from the suggestions I used during the month and that person will get a 1/2 book choice or $2.50 towards GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions. Thanks for sending in questions! The supply of questions is dwindling so share some if you think of any -- even if they are duplicates I'll weed through or try to modify them.
October questions were shared by Becky, Elizabeth and Alina. Becky and Elizabeth have each earned a book pick and Alina gets $2.50 credit.
Your turn to share. Alina asks: Do you think your reading tastes have changed in the last 5 years or are you still reading the same genres/sub-genres??
