A bump in the road, or, the chasm of my reading lately

The month of September has been underwhelming for my reading, this is putting mildly. Right now, I am 26 days behind my reading schedule, and have 13,742 total pages for the year fifteen of reading.

Coming off an incredible year, has those who read this blog would known, I had over 65,000 total pages of reading, and finally, for the first time in almost a decade and a half, read one book each week.

With yesterday’s reading, a pretty good 214 total page day,a glimmer of hope has peak thru the proverbial shit-storm that has been my reading, I know that sounds dramatic, but my average for the this month is an underwhelming 58 daily pages, this includes two days with zero total pages read.

What’s in the agenda, firstly, finish the amazing first volume of the Omnibus series of the Legendary character from the Warhammer Fantasy line, Gotrek and Felix, right now, I´m on page 620, right in the middle of our heroes dealing with the underground threat of the Skavens, the humanlike mutated rats that stalk the underbelly of the Imperial series, it has been quite frankly, some of the best adventure stories of recent memory.

After this, I’ll try to go thru my TBR pile from my Kindle Unlimited newly renewed membership, and get back to basics, read at least for 4 half-hour sessions during the day, and maximize my reading during waiting periods.

It´s off to read for me.


Holding my breath before the plunge

To say that this past August was one of the most hectic months of recent memory will be an understatement.It has been to my present and futures endeavors a game changer, which, I’m pretty excited to take on, but in order to get things rolling, my massive reading session had to be put on hold.

Much to my surprise, the momentum that was created in the first few months of the current year, didn’t suffer as much. This doesn’t mean that I haven’t fallen behind my schedule, but not as drastically as my busy mind imagine.

So, I find myself two weeks behind schedule, and my total is roughly above the 13,000-pages mark. How, you may ask, am I going to get back on track, fairly easy. I’ll start with my morning mantra : one step at a time, one page at a time, and from there, the lost terrain shall be reclaim.

To get the first leg moving, and getting back my purpose realign with my path, I’ll go back to a familiar and trustworthy friend, fantasy stories, in the shape of the first Omnibus of legendary characters from the popular tabletop game Warhammer, Gotrek and Felix, following the mishaps of the tough as nails Dwarf and his human chronicler/poet companion.

Right now, I am on page 317 of this highly entertaining adventure, and feeling my reading spark reignited.

Off to read.
