(Y-12) Major Goodreads update

I opened my Goodreads page, and it has become an inhospitable wasteland.

So, I am going to take this day to put it up to date.

I am really curious how close am I to reaching my reading challenge set in January of 100 books.

I’ll find out really soon.


(Y-12) Little goals

Right now I’ll be focusing on small goals, like finishing the first of Gravel, the combat magician created by Warren Ellis and Mark Wolfer, series.

I am reading issue number 14 and I have number 15 on deck, the total series is 21 numbers, so my immediate goal is to finish it before the weekend ends.

Little steps, to reach my gargantuan challenge.

I am off to read.


(Y-12) let’s keep the fantasy rolling.

Although my original plan for this year was reading some books that were honored with prestigious awards, such as The Pulitzer or Nobel, I inherited lots of books from last year’s epic galore, 22 to be precise.

So, I’ll first go thru last year’s books, and then I’ll focus on the new list.

With that in mind, I will keep on reading all fantasy, this includes any graphic novel or comic book, to start off I will read three volumes of a series I have being eyeing for a while, Artesia.

And to my luck, they are available in my Kindle Unlimited account.

I have already started with the first volume, and it is awesome.

Now I am off to read.


(Y-12) first pages of the year

Year number twelve is now officially underway, and the first pages are now registered in the books.

To kick off this year, my first entry is Dragonero volume 16, the amazing Italian fantasy series by Luca Enoch.

Hopefully, this will be the first of many pages for this year.

Off to read.


The final numbers of (Y-11)

The end of my eleventh year of reading has finally come.

And let me tell you it was a great success.

So let me get right into it, my final page count was 47,171.

That is 5,829 pages less than my ultimate goal of 53,000, and only 535 pages from being my best year, that was painful.

My best month was July, with a total of 6,385 pages, and November was my worst with a total of 1,846 pages.

My daily page average was 129 pages, and had only 16 days with 0 pages read, a low number, but still unacceptable.

I read 355 items, of those, 14 were books, 143 single issue comics and 198 graphic novels.

So, what is in store for year twelve, first of all my ultimate goal is 41,665 pages, this is in order to reach my 130,500 pages over a three year period, that gives me a daily average if 115 pages.

To start, I’ll start working on the 21 books left unread from this past year, all of them epic fantasy, and then I’ll jump into some scifi action.

As always, my gaze is fixed upon making this my best year or reading.

With that thought in mind.

I’m off to read, and officially start the next chapter in my crazy journey.


(Y-11) 5 hours left.

I have only 5 hours to go in this amazing year.

I’ll finish it reading, and hopefully getting as close as possible to being this my best year, last time I checked I was still 1,000 pages away.

Let’s see how close I can get.

Off to read, and I’ll see you on the other side.


(Y-11) 3 days to go, and I can’t sleep

Maybe I am anxious, or maybe is the coca cola coffee talking, but I can go to sleep.

I’ll take advantage of my insomnia and I’ll get some reading done.

There are still 1,164 pages to go I order to make this my best year.

I am off to read.

Wish me luck.


(Y-11) Happy anniversary to us

Today marks our 11th anniversary.

It all started on the table of our first apartment over some coffee with my lovely wife.

And now, all these years later, and over 270,000 pages read, I am still here pounding away with the same joy for books and reading as the first day I started.

Today I plan it to be one with lots of reading, and getting closer to this year goal.

I am off read.
