Daily Journal: March 20, 2023

I must say that this week’s reading has started a bit on the underwhelming side, but still, I’m just 27 pages away from today’s quota, nothing impressive, to say the least, but as long as I have the ability to at least get those 178 daily pages, the rest should follow.

For example, my reading for week 41 ,which ended yesterday, gave me a total of 1,255 pages, not that I complain about getting past the minimal quota for the week, but only 9 extra pages will simply not do, not if I plan to raise the hypothetical 64,000-page trophy at the end of the year.

But the best thing is to focus on what you did today, like getting the month of March a bit closer to its quota. Right now, it sits comfortably at 4,125 pages, which represents almost 3/4 of the total for the month, and if I’m not mistaken, the rhythm is a bit ahead of schedule, still, if the intention is to get the aforementioned trophy, March should at least finish with 2,700 extra pages on its books.

With that in mind, I’ll better get back to my reading that today has been thru a few things, starting with Robin Hobb’s The Ship of Magic, a bit of H.P. Lovecraft, the first issue of the highly recommended Izuna, published by the French publisher Humanoids, it has a bit of a vibe of the Jungle Book, but a bit edgier. But what will help me close out the night will be one of the few superheroes from Marvel Comics that still grab my attention, I’m talking about the leather clad Spirit of Vengeance known as the Ghost Rider in one of its earliest incarnation, haunting Johnny Blaze, a motorcycle stuntman that sold his soul to the Devil

This particular volume compiles his first adventures on the series Marvel Spotlight, published between 1971 and 1972, under the helm of comic book legends Roy Thomas and Michael Ploog, and the first issues of his solo comic book, as always, this type of story catches really quickly my attention.

There is much to do, and the clock on this day is quickly ticking away.

Off to read
