(24in48 readathon) Victory

I am glad yo inform that this time around the goal of reading 24 hours in a period of 48 hours was achieved.

It is a really demanding and satisfying challenge, and in this my third time, I participated I finally got to my goal.

Tomorrow, I’ll post my final numbers.

For now I’ll unwind with some sotol and rest my eyes for a bit.

Off to….sleep.

(24 in 48 readathon) good night

So, I finished the first full day with a total of 12 hours and 15 minutes if reading and 1,327 pages.

Tomorrow’s task is simply, complete the 11 hours and 45 minutes and try to read close too the same quantity as today

For now it is time to get some rest, and recharge for the final day.

Nighty night.

(24in48 readathon) second update

I have been reading for 7 hours and 24 minutes, a little behind schedule but I am confident that I’ll achieve the 14 hours.

I am closing in on 1,000 total pages read, and I plan too at least read 3,000 total pages.

I have finished 8 graphic novels, read some of Memories of Ice and I am about to start with the second part of Apócrifa.

My next update will be when I cross the halfway point.

Off to read.

(24in48 readathon) first reading session

I am off to a good start.

2 hours and 12 minutes off the clock

I finished the first part of Apócrifa, the white book,a blend of short stories exploring the eternal need of humans to explore and find the secrets of the universe.

Tomorrow, I’ll start the day with some graphic novels and a bit of Memories of Ice, and read the second part of Apócrifa, the black book.

Nighty night.

(Y-11) a test run

I’m having one of my last long reading sessions, a sort of warm up for tomorrow’s grand event.

And of course I am chipping away at Memories of Ice, which I am aiming to finish it on Saturday afternoon.

As you can see above, I have about 9 hours left of reading, and I’ll try to push that down to close to 7 hours by the time I start my readathon.

For now,I’ll squeeze one last reading session before I succumb to Morpheus.

Off to read.

(Y-11) and then, craziness followed.

As I am preparing to embark on the 24in48 readathon, I came across another reading challenge for the next week.

Reading Rush is comprised of 7 challenges, one for each day of the week, and it starts on July 22 and runs until July 28, so I thought, why not close out my vacation period with a bang

Hopefully I can finish this two challenges, is going to be grueling, but I’m up for it.

Also, I could not finish Memories of Ice, so, I’ll squeeze it in my weekend of reading.

Now, off to read.

(Y-11) pounding away.

With two days to go for the start of the 24in48 readathon, I keep on reading and adding books to my TBR pile.

Right now I have downloaded 10 graphic novels on my Kindle Unlimited account, you can only have 10 at one time, and I will probably read them on Saturday afternoon.

Right now, I’ll keep on chipping away at Memories of Ice, currently on page 544 of 913, and hopefully I’ll get it done before the start of the readathon.

I have to say that this book has been amazing, and if you are planning to read The Malazan Book of the Fallen, keep in mind that the first two books are quite dense and help to establish the intricate world, but it’s all worth it.

In between all of this reading and planning, I took some time to go to the children’s museum of Ciudad Juárez, obviously with my two kids and my lovely wife.

The museum’s is one of our favourite places in town and as always we had and awesome time.

I’ll get back to my reading, some time I’ll devote to the book and in between some graphic novels time, I’ll read the rest of The Pathfinder Collections I have in my digital collection.

Off to read.

(Y-11) Old School Monday… Sensation Comic (1942-1952) #1

Hello and welcome to another Old School Monday,

As I mention last week, I’ll continue with the origin story of one of the most important characters in comic book history, Wonder Woman.

As the story follows, Princess Diana brings back Captain Trevor to the world of man, here while waiting for him to get better, stops a bank robbery, becomes a carnival performer and switches identity with a nurse, from whom, she receives her incognito name, Diana Prince.

It is really interesting to see how the other characters, and Wonder Woman herself, depict women, I know that we are talking about another era, but it is really palpable how women supposed to be pretty and that conflicts with being powerful.

At least there is an effort to try and break down that misleading notion of not being able to be both, women can be whatever the fuck they want to be.

I’ll continue next week with the first issue of Diana’s solo series.

No one ever reads the same book. We all react to the written word differently. The following are my opinions regarding the books I have read.
