What a difference two years makes.
On the eight year of reading, I was focused on achieving a life-long goal of reading a book for each week of the year.
I came really close, 44 books in 52 weeks.
With this focus, my total page suffered a lot. Because I was centered on reading books and nothing else.
Last year, the ninth, I was all over the place, not a definitive tendency could be determined.
But this year, I’m locked and loaded, there are two main themes in my goal for the year.
The First, and the main one, is to achieve the gargantuan task of the page count ahead of me, 96,766 total pages, from which I can gladly say knocked off the first 1,000 (1,136 pages to be precise).
This is mainly because I started reading comics, again. There were a lot a reasons of why i stopped all together, but the principal one, beside my focus on book this past two years, was that I suffered from a saturation of all comic-book related stuff floating around, I was feed-up.
I guess now, the idea that the cinematic universe of comics are one thing totally separated from what I love to read.
So, it truly is a big difference when it comes to quick page count, this gives me a great hope, that at least, this is a year of more than 50,000 pages and consequently the best year in the 10 years I have been doing this.
As for the second theme, the focus on the series of books I’m reading, a true fantasy galore, starting with my two gateway books, The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, and topping it off with some fantasy series I have been meaning to read for a very long time, The Legend of Drizzt, The Malazan Book of the Fallen and The Black Company.
There is the path-way for this year, just have to ramble on.
