(Y-8) The coming of spring and some new acquisitions

Some signs of spring have pop-up in my little desert oasis. And with it brings my ever present desire to spend some time outside and read.

In the book front I have just finish reading the longest book in this year list. 1Q84 Libro 1 y 2 by famous japanese author Haruki Murakami. The book is amazing, in starts pretty normal, you know a Murakami normal, but it  gets pretty weird pretty fast, the story is view from two perspectives :Tengo, a quiet math teacher with a tremendous talent for writting and Aomame, a personal trainer/assassin. I won’t spoil much of the story because this book should be read by everyone, but at some point of the story there is “little people” coming out of a death blind goat. Yeah!!!!!

 Also, I hope to finish reading Mort this evening and get deeply into Unfinished Tales, which I have neglected.

The next book up is Viaje a Portugal by the Nobel Prize Winner José Saramago.

I think the my pace has gone up, things are looking better. Here is the numbers so far this year.

  • Total pages for  the eight year : 6,160 pages
  • Days left for the eight year: 215 days
  • Books left for the eight year: 38 books
  • Pages left to read in my goal for the eight year: 15,131 pages
  • Total pages of Lost in a million pages: 173,305 pages

And finally on the subject of hoarding new things for my ever growing demand of pages I just got some Star Wars comics. They look great and where really cheap, which is always welcome.

For now back to reading.
