I am done with a few books since my last post and with that my road to reach 250,000 will be cut by half.
On the book front, I have finished the second book of the Neverwinter Saga, an old foe comes to haunt Drizzt’s step once again, as always it is a pure delight read the adventures of such an iconic fantasy character.
For me, Drizzt holds a place in the Olympus of fantasy characters, keeping good company with the likes of Aragorn.
Here is the infographic sheet from Bookly.
So naturally, I jump right into the third book of the Saga, Charon’s Claw.
After finishing this saga I am not sure what to read next, do I continue with The Malazan Book of the Fallen, the third book Memories of Ice, or do I tackle the monumental novel Jerusalem by Alan Moore.
I’ll appreciate your opinions by commenting on this post.
Now moving on to graphic novels.
I finished Batman: The Black Mirror, as always great fun to follow the Dark Knight, in this case, his understudy, thru the treacherous streets of Gotham, and the art by Jock, just breathtaking.
You can see for yourself below.
Here is the infographic sheet.
The other graphic novel that I finished was the fourth volume of Robert Venditti’s run on Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps, there is trouble in paradise and too much of my surprise and delight there is an appearance by the New Gods.
And here is the infographic sheet, this was a relatively quick read, I was hooked and could not put it down.
Right now I will go back on the timeline of Green Lantern and read a series that I could not catch when it was first published, Brightest Day, the aftermath of the events unleashed on Blackest Night.
So, things are progressing quite nicely, just a little push and I’ll be celebrating the quarter of my ultimate goal.
And on that note, let us talk about some of my numbers.
My total for this year sits on 16,265 pages, an excellent number, but still behind schedule, 27 days to be precise.
On the bigger goal, reaching 250,000 pages, I am on the verge of getting there, just 708 pages to go, and if everything holds, I will be opening the champagne on March 5.
Lastly, I was thinking of much days have gone by since I started and how many do I have left to achieve my goal, fortunately, there is time and date, this website helps you calculate dates and so much more.
And I come to found out that:
I have been reading for 3,794 days
And, that I still have 4,482 days left to achieve my 1,000,000 page goal.
I better get back to reading.
