(Y-12) Ahead of schedule

I just finished the first book, Dragons of Autumn Twilight, of the trilogy Dragonlance Chronicles, in which we meet our fearless heroes on their quest to face a new threat that has come to endangered their beloved homeland.

But not only that, there’s also whisper of the return of the Dark Queen.

I cannot wait to jump right into the second book, Dragons of Winter Night.

This will be the 11th book of this year of reading, and I have put March 12 as the deadline to finish reading it.

Only 39 more books to go, this is so exciting.

I am off to read.


(Y-12) Finding my stride

I feel really satisfied with my current reading pace.

I am picking up my rythm, and I will probably finish this first book of my quest just on schedule.

With less than 100 pages to go on Dragons of Autumn Twilight, and the rest of today, all of tomorrow, and until 6:00 a.m. of Saturday to finish them, I can see a really promising outcome.

Also, I will try to pass the 20,000-page mark over the weekend, followed by some celebratory drinks.

For now, I am off to read.


(Y-12) Picking up the pace

I have finally catch a rythm, and my reading has been flowing along quite nicely.

I am currently on page 296 of Dragons of Autumn Twilight, and I will hopefully reach my goal for the day, to reach page 324.

This surge is in part to my mandatory rest, I have been dealing with some issues on my left shoulder and hand.

I am supposed to take it easy, and what better way to do that than reading.

With that in mind, I am off to read.


(Y-12) Falling a little behind

I am a little behind of my intended goal for my book reading goal of this year.

Right now, I am working on Dragons of Autumn Twilight, and have the intention of finishing it by Saturday.

With that in mind I’ll put the pedal to the metal, and try to read a bit before I succumb to sleep.

Dragons everywhere.

I am off to read.


(Y-12) Giant leaps

Yesterday, while I was battling by archnemesis Mr. Insomnia, I came up with the crazy notion that I should try and read a total of 49 books by the end of my reading year, which is on October 12 of this year.

I have already read 9 books, and I know that 40 is a big number but it is doable.

The first task will be to finish Dragons of Autumn Twilight by Saturday morning, and jump into Dragons of Winter Night.

Let’s do this.


(Y-12) Achievement unlocked, a big one.

I have reach another goal on my journey thru reading while using the Bookly app.

30,000 pages read using the app, sounds ease but it is a whopper of an achievement.

These is the highest challenge for pages read on the app.

I have still have some really hard ones to unlocked, like number of books, hours read, and reading streaks.

For now, I am off to read.


(Y-12) Reading, more reading, and an extra day

I know, I know.

I have been away for close to two weeks, but it is safe to say that those days are over.

Although these last days have been really productive.

Including the extra day in February, because of 2020 being a leap year.

First of all, I finished some amazing graphic novels.

The first was the seminal work by legendary writer/illustrator Will Eisner, yeah the same who has the most prestigious award in the comic book industry.

This book comprised of three of his graphic novels set in the fictitious New York avenue Dropsie.

From different perspectives, different time periods, and different racial realities, this is one work all of graphic novel lovers must have in his library.

The next series I started and was Haunt by Robert Kirkman, of Walking Dead fame, illustrated by one of my first favorite artists, and comic book legend, Todd McFarlane.

This story remained me so much of McFarlane’s most famous creation, Spawn, this not as a bad thing, more like an exploration of the use of this character of his supernatural abilities as a special agent, and making this a conscious decision, unlike Spawn, who is thrown into a celestial conflict as a mere pawn.

Give it a chance, these are two amazing creators having some fun.

The first order of business for this week of reading is to continue with my current book, Dragons of Autumn Twilight, the first volume of the marvelous, and the really vast world of Dragonlance.

I have the first trilogy on deck, this is Chronicles storyline, after that, I’ll continue with the adventures of drow elf Drizzt, only to come back to read Dragonlance’s Legends Trilogy, Second Generation, and Dragons of Summer Flame novels to close out the books I have waiting on my shelf.

Parallel to this, and as I always do, I will be reading some graphic novels.

Off my shelves, I will be reading a classic Batman storyline, Knightfall.

Bane breaks the Bat.


This particular edition is new reprints in Spanish comprised of three oversized trade paperbacks of the entire storyline.

From my Kindle Unlimited subscription, I will pick up from where I left off, about 12 years ago, with the critically acclaimed series The Walking Dead.

I have three volumes on deck, from 8 to 10 of the 32 that this long-running series has available.

I have some really good things line up.

Now let’s talk about my numbers.

This year of reading has been amazing.

My total for year twelve is 18,861 pages.

I am 24 days ahead of my reading schedule, this on the tail end of my best month of reading, February with a total of 5,249 net pages, and a perfect month, with all of the 29 days of reading with 115 pages or more.

Also, I am 941 pages to reach 300,000, my goal is to reach it before next weekend.

My focus now is to get my projected dates to reach the two major milestones of this project, reaching 500,000 and 1,000,000 pages.

Right now, according to my projections, I will reach the first 500,000 on the 28 of October 2027, that’s about 4 years later that I would like to.

Of course, this number has been coming down, and my current goal is to reach this first leg of the journey by March 20 of 2023.

In the case of the ultimate goal, my projections place me reaching 1,000,000 on November 17, 2046, that would mean that I will be 65 years old.

15 years too late.

With my current pace, I have great faith that when I am celebrating my 50th birthday, and will also be sitting in a beautiful library somewhere in the Pacific coastline of the United States, reading about some American deities as told my a crazy genius, English man.

But that is a story for another time.

I am off to read.
