I’m only 35 pages away to fill my daily quota and 95 pages to mark this week on the win column. It was a pretty good day. Any day that I get to spend with my wife and kids is well worth putting my reading a bit on the back burner and just enjoying their precious company.
Now that things have quiet down, I’ll put my head toward getting those remaining pages to finish the week strongly and preparing for the final stretch of the path toward the first major event of the year, Tolkien Reading Day, which is next Saturday, and to be completely honest, I haven’t quite settled in what to read or how the celebration is going to play out, but there’s still time to whip something up.
For today’s final session, my focus will be on the current graphic novel that I started reading this morning, Dragon Age Omnibus, based on the best-selling role-playing video game developed by BioWare that takes place in the fictional continent of Thedas. I’m not so familiar with the video game series, but judging from what I have read so far, it made me what to go and check it out.
I’ll put my remaining energy towards finishing the more than 100 pages left on the story, and if I don’t succumb to quickly to sleep, I’ll probably squeeze a session from Robin Hobb’s The Ship of Magic, this is one of two books that I would love to finish before the weekend to have my total attention on whichever book from Tolkien’s universe I decide to immerse myself into.
If everything goes according to plan, and if I play my cards right, there’s a strong possibility that my monthly quota can be achieved a week early, giving me space to try to knock off some of those pesky surplus pages accumulated from past months.
Right now, my total for March sits comfortably at 3,871 pages, which represents 70% of the total quota, leaving only 1,647 pages to read, hence my optimism to getting it done by the weekend.
Off to read.
