(Y-10) 74 days…a tiny burst

Had a good day of reading, I reached page 539 of The Name of the Wind, a 79 page progress and the day is not over yet.

Right now I am on sleep duty and my youngest is not showing any signs of giving in.

So, in the meantime, I’ll try to make some headway with the second volume of All-Star Batman, with the extraordinary art of Jock.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-10) 75 days…slow progress

I will close out my day with a double espresso, some pecan ice cream, and a plan to reach page 500 of The Name of the Wind, currently on page 460.

Today was a typical one, as far as progress is concerned, I read the last three comic books I had left of DC Comics Dark Nights and will have to wait until the rest come out.

This is because I am reading them in Spanish and are coming out on a weekly basis, there are about four left to close out the series.

I guess I’ll read something else until the rest come out, and of course make some headway with my book.

Happy Readings!!!

p.s.

I plan to have a couple of Caffeine Pilgrimage entries for next week, including a new spot recently recommended.

So, stay tuned for that.

(Y-10) 76 days…down day

It has been a lazy day, did a little bit of reading in the morning, currently on page 455 of The Name of the Wind.

Also, I finally got around to watch the first season of Castlevania, loved the video game as a kid and love the idea of Warren Ellis as the writer of the series.

I am only 4 episodes in but so far so good.

I plan to close out the night with a little Dark Nights action.

Happy Readings.

(Y-10) 77 days… 25,000 pages

I’m happy to announce that another milestone for this year of reading has been conquered.

The total as of now sits at 25,069 pages.

Although I had a busy day, there were a few moments to squeeze in some reading.

I’ll close out the day with some more DC comics Dark Nights and keep on feeding my total.

Back to it.

(Y-10) 78 days… so close I can smell it

Today was a very successful one.

Firstly, I finally finish the DC Universe by Mike Mignola graphic novel, showcasing the extraordinary early work of the now legendary creator of Hellboy, and personally my favorite comic book artist.

The graphic novel collects some of his work in not only the different DC Comics titles but also a wide range of his cover work, eerily beautiful.

Judge for yourself.

 

Also, I started my journey through one of the latest DC Comics major events, Dark Days, just read the first two issues, which a considered the prelude to the event.

The Forge and the Casting, written by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV with the support of not one but three legendary artists Andy Kubert, Jim Lee and John Romita Jr., this was an epic start to what promises to become a legendary tale in the rich annals of DC Comics.

Pencils by John Romita Jr.

And because of this great burst of reading is that I stand on the verge of achieving one the immediate goals of this year, reaching 25,000 pages.

Well, I’m painfully close, for my total, as of now, is 24,996 pages.

Just four measly pages away.

To close out the night, I will read the first issue of Dark Days: Metal and make some headway with The Name of the Wind, currently on page 411, picking up the pace.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-10) 79 days…lazy

I had one of those lazy ass days were you don’t focus on anything.

I didn’t watch any series or had a long reading session.

Just a lazy day.

Right now the urge to make some headway is starting to show itself.

Luckily for me, and with the help of a little caffeine, my insomnia kick in and not all the day is lost.

I currently at page 357 of The Name of the Wind and hopefully I will reach the 400 page mark before all this caffeine wears out.

Now back to reading.

(Y-10) 80 days…focused

The final act of this year of reading is well underway.

I’m locked-in on one primary purpose.

To make this the second-best year of reading for my crazy little project.

But you may wonder, How far away am I to achieve this?

Well, the answer is, not that far.

For this to be the second-best year, I will have to read 3,090 more pages, highly achievable task.

Now, the primary goal for this year is to read more pages than the two previous years combined, to achieve that I will have to read 9,206 more pages, things get a bit more interesting.

And my hail mary goal is to make this my best year of reading, to achieve that I will have to read 23,177 more pages, and well, I have plans to sleep and eat for the foreseable future.

For now Ill stick to my primary goal and try to shoot as close as possible to my best year numbers.

Back to reading, I am currently at page 305 of The Name of the Wind, almost at the halfway mark, and cruising along nicely, better not mess with this good vibe.

(Y-10) 81 days… at full throttle

As the clock slowly ticks away day after day of this year of reading, I come to realize that only my full commitment will get me thru this final stretch of my road.

For my immediate goal I have a couple of milestones in mind, first, and the most obvious, is to reach 25,000, from which I am little under 500 pages to go.

The second is to make this year at least the second best year of reading of this crazy little project, in order to do that I have to reach a little over 26,500 pages.

So, there you have, a couple of landmarks in the horizon in which to focus my journey

I’ll probably have an extensive reading session this evening, focusing on The Name of the Wind and tomorrow I’ll throw in some graphic novels.

Now back to reading.

(Y-10) 82 days… hangover

Today I am in recuperation mode.

I have read a little ,but to be honest it has been a slow day.

Thanks to the 24in48 readathon my total page number has gone up exponentially.

I sit at 24,595 pages and closing in one of the immediate goals, 25,000

Tomorrow I’ll be back on full swing.

Happy Readings!!!
