(Y-11) taking it slow.

I will be focused on my reading for the next two weeks.

The plan is to close the gap in my reading schedule, which is right now 20 days behind.

The goal, to cut this in half.

My total of pages for this year sits at 12,864 pages.

To start off, I’ll read a few issues of The Dreaming, series that ran from 1996 to 2001, spinning off the monumental series Sandman by Neil Gaiman.

The first issue follows baby gargoyle Goldie.

See you in two weeks.

Off to reading

(Y-11) The end of my 24in48 readathon and a small hiatus.

I officially finished my participation on the amazing 24in48 readathon, for this edition my numbers are as follow:

  • 9 hours and 20 minutes of reading.
  • 1 book finished, Deadhouse Gates, and read 127 pages of Gauntlgrym, part of the Legend of Drizzt saga.
  • 4 amazing graphic novels, volumes 3 and 4 of Scott Pilgrim, Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.: 1952, and Hit-Girl in Colombia.

I would have liked to read the whole 24 hours, but I didn’t have it in me this time.

Regardless of that, I really enjoyed it.

For now, I’ll try to read some more and take a couple of weeks off from writing on this blog.

Refocus.

Regroup.

See you all really soon.

Four and a half hour of reading.

Just finishing my first reading session for the 24in48 readathon.

And it was really productive.

First of all, I finally finished Deadhouse Gates.

Started reading Gauntlgrym and made a little headway, currently on page 27.

Also finished volumes three and four of Scott Pilgrim.

A total of 561 pages and still 19 and a half hours to go.

I’ll take a break now.

(Y-11) Anxious to start.

Just 12 hours to go to start my second 24in48 readathon.

Here is my stack of books, in list form, not so attractive, but I’ll load a picture later, of course, of the books and graphic novels that I have in print because some of this is digital editions.

There isn’t enough time to read all of this, but I hope to go thru most of them, and at least start reading book XXIV of the Legend of Drizzt, which of course that would mean finish book XXIII.

My first reading session will start at 10:00 p.m. standard mountain time and it will be Gauntlgrym.

Now I’ll go rest my eyes and go on a snack run.

 

(Y-11) Almost Time

For this weekend the only things that matters are my gigantic pile of book and the clock below.

Just have to get thru this Friday in one piece, and come 10:00 p.m. I will be glued to my comfy sofa for the rest of the weekend.

I’ll be posting regularly on how my reading is going, mainly here, but also on Twitter, you can find me as @azriel_d.

Great vibes to all of those participating on the 24in48 readathon.

(Y-11) gearing up

Yesterday I fell asleep before getting the chance to write anything.

My reading was slow, only 17 total pages.

Right now I am working on my reading for the 24in48 readathon and trying to close out Deadhouse Gates, currently on page 567.

I’ll power thru to the two upcoming nights in order to finish and get everything set for the weekend.

Tomorrow I’ll post my final reading list and also a new place with locally brewed beers.

Back to reading,

(Y-11) Getting closer

With only a few days left to the 24in48 readathon, I still think what to read.

But primarily, my focus should be on finishing Deadhouse Gates, currently on page 545.

So I’ll take a brief moment to get you up to speed of my recent progress.

My total for yesterdays reading was 50 pages, and I managed to finish the first volume of Green Lanterns: Rage Planet, part of the DC Comics Universe Rebirth, and featuring one of the best villains in recent Green Lantern history, Atrocitus.

Here you can delight in one of the covers.

And here is the infographic sheet generated with Bookly.

The next graphic novel on my queue is Batman: Earth One, which I think will be amazing because of the team-up of two legends, Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.

Back to it, and hopefully tomorrow I can post an update on my numbers for the year.

(Y-11) Into a Trance

Today marks the end of the NFL playoffs, it is one weekend off, and on the 3rd of February, it is the big game, the Superbowl.

I am not that invested on the game, but I do want to watch it, it will be my 32 consecutive years enjoying the game, it was Superbowl XXI, the New York Giants defeated the Denver Broncos.

So now I’ll go into a significant reading trance.

Firstly, to finish Deadhouse Gates by Friday morning, currently on page 520, and picking up the pace.

This is because, at 10:00 p.m. on Friday, I’ll start the 24in48 readathon, in order to match the official starting time, which is 12:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, I have to begin at this hour because I am on the Mountain Standard Time, that is 2 hours behind, and on Sunday I should wrap up by 9:59 p.m.

I intend to start reading Gauntlgrym, part of The Legend of Drizzt saga, as the inaugural book of this my second readathon. Hence the need to finish with Deadhouse Gates.

I am gathering my other material for reading, which is comprised mainly of digital and printed graphic novels and comics.

And just to close out this post and get back to reading, I’ll like to say that my total for yesterday was 94 pages.

Clawing my way back slowly.

Back to it then.

(Y-11) Bob Dylan is my co-pilot

Yesterday’s reading was acceptable, 58 pages.

I read some of the first volume of Green Lanterns, it is always great to see the fantastic art of Ethan Van Sciver gracing the pages of any story featuring the emerald knight.

As you can see in the picture below an extraordinary testament of Mr. Van Sciver talents.

So, today I took upon myself to fill my day with lots of reading, tea, coffee, and of course lots of music.

I started the day with The Clash, then passed to The War on Drugs and Le Butcherettes, and I am about to close out the day with none other than Bob Dylan.

Kind of a weird pairing for a trek thru the holy desert of Raraku, but good old Bob fits splendidly anywhere.

And speaking of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, I have reach page 500 of Deadhouse Gates, and still, have some gas left on the engine, so I intend to read 3/4 of the book, which means getting to page 524.

I’ll get back to it then.
