In my pursuit to try and finish my current book, Toll the Hounds, I breached the most important thing that I promised myself when this project started, to have fun.
I was viewing this like a short race, when it’s in fact a Ironman marathon of reading, and if I’m not having fun, what’s the point.
So I’ll change how to finish on of my main goals of the year, to finish The Malazan Book of the Fallen, right now I’m on page 1043 of Toll the Hounds, and still have 2 more books to read, The Dust of Dreams, 816 pages long, and The Crippled God, 908 pages long and the final chapter of this epic saga.
With this numbers in mind, I will have to read about 22 pages per day in order to finish by the end of this year of reading, which is on June 6.
In between those pages, and hopefully getting really close to my total goal of 37,984 pages, I’ll read everything and anything at hand.
To continue with my goal of one short story per day, I’ll read the next fantastical story from the Wizards anthology, written by Elizabeth Hand, and on the neglected department of graphic novels, I’ll continue with the second volume of Cullen Bunn’s Uncanny X-men run.
Off to read.
