I’m glad to say that the streak survived to fight another day. As I write these lines, my total for the day is 181 pages, I know, just 3 pages over the daily quota, but as long as that number can be reached, even surpassed by only 1 page, that kind of day will always go o the win column.
Still, my focus for the rest on the night is trying to finish the second volume of the amazing Usagi Yojimbo Saga, currently on page 504 of 662, which will get past the 40,000-page mark, just need to register 348 pages to do so.
And March is still looking like a turning point month, in only the eight day of the month, I have 1,800 total , representing 32% of the monthly quota, that’s exactly the kind of numbers I need to get this year back on track. There’s also the looming need to squeeze in a few extra pages on top of the monthly quota. For this month, it’s around 2,700 extra pages.
The other good news coming off today’s reading sessions is that I finally resume my reading of H.P. Lovecraft: The Complete Collection. The story behind why I started the collection is that my wife got me an illustration by local artist “Puro Barragan” depicting a character from the short story The Cats of Ulthar, that’s when I realize that there were some stories that escaped my mind and I had to explore the vast world created by one of the best horror writers in history.
Right now, I’m on page 448 of the whopping 1,353 that comprises this vast collection, and the perfect way to resume my journey is to go thru The Mountain of Madness.
Off to read.
