In this hot day, I decided to put all of my efforts to finish the two current books I’m working on, Sorgo Rojo by Mo Yan and Apocalipsis by Stephen King.
My total reading for this year is 13,146 pages and with 119 days to go, I’m aiming to reach at least 33,000. This will leave me under 97,000 pages for (Y-10) to reach my 3 years goal of 130,500 pages.
fuel for the fire
Next on the list
Some birthday gifts and one brick of a book
Not a small task, but one I will be carefully planning for it in the coming months.
For now, I’ll take it one page at a time.
Happy Readings !!!
I have been chasing this year like a desperate beast.
And finally today I reached 12,000 pages, this number should have been reached, according to my projections, on January 1st, 2017.
My momentum has picked up and as of now, I’m 129 days behind the projected total, which was about 150 pages per day, to reach the 54,885 for (Y-9).
Hence this page total would have to been reached on the mentioned date, if I go back to my projections the total for today, may 9th, should be 31,200 pages.
So, I have until October 13 to read about 42,881 pages.
Some caffeine infused late night are naturally to follow.
Wish me luck
These last two weeks have been really busy but full of great activities.
On the reading front, my forward momentum has slowed down but not to the point of being concern about it.
Things have progressed somewhat slow but with a constant flow of pages.
According to my projections, the year promises to finish with about 28,000 pages, which is pretty good but not what I hope for. This put much more pressure on (Y-10) to achieve the coveted 130,500 pages in three years.
My reading, at least for the last two weeks, has been a mixture of comic and a little headway on my current books, Apocalipsis by Stephen King and Sorgo Rojo by Mo Yan.
Also, I finished reading The Amber Spyglass, the third and final book of His Dark Material series, in my opinion, the weakest of the series, don’t get me wrong is still a pretty good book but not quite as good as the previous two.
Last week I mainly spent it attending some conferences in the local art museum and doing a walk along the border to visit some of the murals painted by the local artists on the retaining concrete walls of the Rio Bravo.
The infamous “Black Bridge”
Some of the murals
And for the main dish of the weekend, a concert of At the Drive-In with the magnificent opening act of Le Butcherettes.
At the Drive-In are natives of El Paso, the city that we share our beautiful borderland.

- Pages left to read in my goal for the ninth year: 43,088 pages
