It all started on these day on a chilly night of the year 2008. The crazy notion of trying the herculean task of reading 1,000,000 pages by the time I turned 50.

I was 27 back then, now, at 41, my total pages, after 5,114 days of reading, is 432,997, this distributed between 4,135 different items ranging from books all the way to single-issue comic books.

In all, it has been an amazing experience. There’s a lot work left to do for the 3,163 days left until my 50th birthday, my main focus is to reach by March 20 of 2023 the first half of my goal, and then, the real challenge begins.

For now, I’m off to read.


Little steps

It has been an uphill battle to get back on track on my goals for this year’s reading.

But tbe start of one of my favorite months, which hopefully include a month long monster movie marathon, the traditional reread of Frankenstein, and more importantly around 7,000 total pages.

On that note, I’m glad to say that the first two days of October have surmount to a total of 579 pages, with room for a few more before the day is done.

My total for the year has surpass another of my milestones, 15,000 total pages. It is actually at 16,250. There’s still a lot of catching up to do, but as my mantra states “one step at a time, one page at a time”.

Now I’ll get back to trying to have a 500-page day, and getting to the midpoint of my current book, Cixin Liu’s fascinating tale, La esfera luminosa, my first book by this prolific author.

Off to read
