So I’m done with The Book of Lost Tales by J.R.R. Tolkien, as all of the book related to the creation of the mythology and history of Middle-Earth, is a glimpse to a really complex creative process that gave birth to one of the most famous worlds in literature. This is a more straightforward short story collection with a extensive commentary by Christopher Tolkien (the professor’s son).
The other two books I finish are part of a pretty cool collection that compiles most of H.P. Lovecraft’s work.
Both are really good books, but I liked better Horror en el museo , I’m just a sucker for any story that has to do with the Ancient Gods or the big bad boss Cthulhu.
So after finishing this three books the final count for the last 60 days of this my eight year is of 17 books. My reading has gone up and I feel confident that the goal shall be reach.
As the year comes to a close my final page count for the next two years becomes clearer. A while back I put a goal that in the next three years I will attempt to read 135,000 pages. Being the first year (Y-8) dedicated to reading 52 books and the next two years dedicated to reaching that monumental goal.
As of today I’m looking on 54,885 pages per year. So my main concern is to have enough material to read, but, as any respectable book addict, this does not bother me, it only gives me the opportunity ( or the excuse) to add to my ever-growing library.
To get the wheels turning I found some really cool Abe Sapien comics I haven’t read. So the madness thus begin.
Let’s see what the weekend brings my way.
