I am now approaching the final leg of what has been an extraordinary year.
Just 5 days left and I am inching to what I set out to do for this year of reading.
To start off, yesterday’s total was 279 pages, the second highest of the month.
I reached a total of 7,873 pages on the year, that is only 127 to achieve my immediate goal of 8,000 pages. If everything runs smoothly, I will reach this coveted number by this evening.
Now let’s talk about yesterday reading.
I finished the first volume of Archer & Armstrong, The Michelangelo Code, all I have to say about this is Ninja Nuns, you are welcome.
Also, I read the first volume of what I think will turn out to be my favorite one of all the Valiant comics universe, Shadowman.
A really cool mixture between horror and superhero comics, all of this brewed slowly on cauldron full of voodoo. Honestly, it has a lot of the elements that I loved about comics all rolled into one single story, highly recommended.
So naturally, I jump right into the second volume, Darque Reckoning, of this fantastic story.
On the book front, the dry spell continues, only 6 pages yesterday, the story is quite catching, but I think that my focus is on achieving certain things that I can concentrate enough to get a good rhythm with the book.
So, for now, I am on page 90 of the book, and this will be treated as the starting point for the next five days to get it done.
I think once the 8,000 pages mark is hit my mind will relax and focus on climbing that behemoth of a mountain that is The Malazan Book of the Fallen.
With this great burst of reading, I have gained one day and currently are 22 days behind my reading schedule, slowly, but surely the gap is closing.
Well, I am off to chase those pages.
