(Y-12) Level up and the first Bookly readathon

I just reach level 22 on the Bookly app, this means I have used it to log 213 hours of reading.


The next level is 17 hours and 31 minutes away.

Right around this time of year, I would have been getting ready for the 24in48 readathon, but the amazing team of this now an iconic weekend of reading has taken a much-deserved hiatus to regroup.

So I had to look for an alternative to fill my need to binge read.

I found it in the first-ever readathon organized by the reading tracking app Bookly.

It is fairly simple, from Monday, January 20 starting at the stroke of midnight and up until Sunday, January 26 at 11:59 p.m., you can do two things, read for 20 hours, or read 2020 pages.

This obviously using the app to keep track of your progress, I chose the latter.

At the end of the week, you share your weekly report and have a chance to win the free upgrade to Pro.

In my case, I should start on Sunday, January 19 at 10:00 p.m., and read up until Sunday, January 26 at 9:59 p.m., this is because the readathon starts on an Eastern Standard Time zone,  and I am on a Mountain Standard Time zone.

If you are interested in participate check the blog entry from Bookly.

I am off to read.

(24in48 readathon) Reading hangover

My 24in48 readathon was a complete success.

This time around I completed the 24 hours and read some amazing books.

My total in pages was 2,960, this thanks to 16 graphic novels, 1 book and about 175 pages from Memories of Ice, yeah still working on that behemoth.

Here is the complete list:

Books

  • Apocrifa
  • Memories of Ice (from page 589 to 764)

Graphic Novels

  • Principe Valiente (1938)
  • Principe Valiente (1939)
  • Principe Valiente (1940)
  • Hellboy Vol. 5
  • Hellboy Vol. 6
  • The Crow Midnight Legends Vol. 1
  • The Crow Midnight Legends Vol. 2
  • The Crow Midnight Legends Vol. 3
  • Batman (DC Comics Rebirth) Vol. 6
  • Persepolis
  • Pathfinder: Goblins!
  • Giant Days Vol. 1
  • The Spire
  • Lumberjanes Vol.1
  • Underwater Welder
  • Sweet Tooth Book One

As I was saying, a total success.

Also, it greatly helped my year of reading.

I now have a total of 35,788 pages for this the eleventh year of reading, still have 17, 212 pages left on this year’s goal and 83 days to do it.

On things concerning my reading schedule and my next big milestone, 500,000 pages, this intense reading session was of great help.

I am 38 days behind schedule, down from 53 days the last time I checked, and my calculated date for reaching the 500,000 page milestone moved from January 10, 2029, to October 31, 2028.

That is 72 days of progress.

All in all, I am very happy with the results, I’ll take the rest of the morning off, and read my Old School Monday comic book and I’ll see you later.

Off to read… well in a little while.

(24in48 readathon) Victory

I am glad yo inform that this time around the goal of reading 24 hours in a period of 48 hours was achieved.

It is a really demanding and satisfying challenge, and in this my third time, I participated I finally got to my goal.

Tomorrow, I’ll post my final numbers.

For now I’ll unwind with some sotol and rest my eyes for a bit.

Off to….sleep.

(24 in 48 readathon) good night

So, I finished the first full day with a total of 12 hours and 15 minutes if reading and 1,327 pages.

Tomorrow’s task is simply, complete the 11 hours and 45 minutes and try to read close too the same quantity as today

For now it is time to get some rest, and recharge for the final day.

Nighty night.

(24in48 readathon) second update

I have been reading for 7 hours and 24 minutes, a little behind schedule but I am confident that I’ll achieve the 14 hours.

I am closing in on 1,000 total pages read, and I plan too at least read 3,000 total pages.

I have finished 8 graphic novels, read some of Memories of Ice and I am about to start with the second part of Apócrifa.

My next update will be when I cross the halfway point.

Off to read.

(24in48 readathon) first reading session

I am off to a good start.

2 hours and 12 minutes off the clock

I finished the first part of Apócrifa, the white book,a blend of short stories exploring the eternal need of humans to explore and find the secrets of the universe.

Tomorrow, I’ll start the day with some graphic novels and a bit of Memories of Ice, and read the second part of Apócrifa, the black book.

Nighty night.

(Y-11) a test run

I’m having one of my last long reading sessions, a sort of warm up for tomorrow’s grand event.

And of course I am chipping away at Memories of Ice, which I am aiming to finish it on Saturday afternoon.

As you can see above, I have about 9 hours left of reading, and I’ll try to push that down to close to 7 hours by the time I start my readathon.

For now,I’ll squeeze one last reading session before I succumb to Morpheus.

Off to read.

(Y-11) and then, craziness followed.

As I am preparing to embark on the 24in48 readathon, I came across another reading challenge for the next week.

Reading Rush is comprised of 7 challenges, one for each day of the week, and it starts on July 22 and runs until July 28, so I thought, why not close out my vacation period with a bang

Hopefully I can finish this two challenges, is going to be grueling, but I’m up for it.

Also, I could not finish Memories of Ice, so, I’ll squeeze it in my weekend of reading.

Now, off to read.

azr.

(Y-11) pounding away.

With two days to go for the start of the 24in48 readathon, I keep on reading and adding books to my TBR pile.

Right now I have downloaded 10 graphic novels on my Kindle Unlimited account, you can only have 10 at one time, and I will probably read them on Saturday afternoon.

Right now, I’ll keep on chipping away at Memories of Ice, currently on page 544 of 913, and hopefully I’ll get it done before the start of the readathon.

I have to say that this book has been amazing, and if you are planning to read The Malazan Book of the Fallen, keep in mind that the first two books are quite dense and help to establish the intricate world, but it’s all worth it.

In between all of this reading and planning, I took some time to go to the children’s museum of Ciudad Juárez, obviously with my two kids and my lovely wife.

The museum’s is one of our favourite places in town and as always we had and awesome time.

I’ll get back to my reading, some time I’ll devote to the book and in between some graphic novels time, I’ll read the rest of The Pathfinder Collections I have in my digital collection.

Off to read.
