I’m on the final stretch of A Dance with Dragons, my plan is to finish it by Thursday night, and jump right in into my next big book, The Stand by Stephen King.
The last two nights have been spent in my favorite reading spot, just hacking away at this terrific book.
To be honest, I have been procrastinating with my reading, sometimes you need to recharge, so with that in mind, this weekend was just what I needed.
What better to energize than wine and art.
First I went to the Art Museum of my fair city, Ciudad Juárez, and was blown away with the fascinating collection of artist Carla Rippey, if you live in Juarez and even if you don’t you should go and visit it.
And to finish the day some wine, the first “Festival del Vino Paso del Norte” , in hope that is only the beginning of many more years.
I bought some great wine from producers in my home state, Chihuahua.
Well with my batteries charge and ready to take on the next half of this year of reading, that present some gargantuan task.
So here are the number for this period:
- Total pages for the ninth year: 9,484 pages
- Days left for the ninth year: 185 days
- Books left in the ninth: 23 books
- Pages left to read in my goal for the ninth year: 45,401 pages
- Total pages of Lost in a million pages: 193,046 pages
