As it turns out, the best results for regaining my motivation and rhythm of reading come from taking a moment early in my mornings to plan and scheme what my day should be. Just as dawn approaches, with the first cup of coffee of the day, the pathways toward my ultimate open up quite clearly, I don´t know if it’s the almost awake state or the stupor from the caffeine shot to the system, but things become a series of task to be approached.
In this particular series of entries, my intent is to share my day-to-day planning toward this project that is an integral part of who I am, it gives me so much joy and purpose to share my love for books, and with this outlet, I can share a glimpse of what it looks like to be on a pathway dedicated to devouring what the world of literature has to offer, this, sprinkled with a bit of the place that gives me comfort and solace to escape reality for a bit.
For the upcoming weeks my sole focus will be to achieve a couple of things: reach 40,000 total pages for the year before the last 100 days of reading, better known as the 100-day march, and work toward the ultimate goal of 64,942 pages for the year fifteen. In between these two global goals, there are always fun activities and challenges to get me to the finish line in style.
To help me along with the 40,000 total pages, I have devised a daily checklist of the minimal reading tasks, that sum up will get me passed this particular task, for today these are the goals:
- Read 48 pages of Cormac McCarthy’s The Border Trilogy
- Read 108 pages of H.P. Lovecraft: A Collection
- Read 1 story from the compilation Biútiful Frik
- Read the manga DR.Stone Vol. 8
- Read 28 pages of Mark Chadbourn’s Hellboy: The Ice Wolves
Throughout the day I will make little nooks to read and enjoy a moment of silence. I’ll see you tomorrow to see how the day went, and what new task emerges for the new day.
Off to read.
