(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.

(Y-11) new comic books and back to reality

This passed week I did not read as much as usual.

I was taking a break to recharge some batteries and go visit an old friend, the sea.

It was quite relaxing and I enjoyed catching some sun and eating.

Beautiful scenery to be really enjoy, thus my lack of a great progress, but have no fear, because next weekend, I’ll devote myself to the 24in48 readathon and it will be really productive.

Right now I am working on Memories of Ice, because I want to be done by early Friday morning and start with my readathon with a couple of short novels from a Mexican editorial house, Paraiso Perdido, but more on that later.

For now I’ll use my new comic book acquisitions as a palate cleanser, this time it will be issue number six of Justice League Dark and the ninth and final issue of DC Heroes in Crisis.

Off to read.

(Y-11) Between rocks and places filled with memories

I needed to disconnect and reconnect.

And there no better way than to go back to my beloved desert.

I did some wandering around, read for a bit, but most of all enjoyed nature.

So, no worries about pages or clocks, just time to be in the moment.

Now I’ll try to finish Fire & Blood and keep on enjoying my time.

(Y-11) Disconnect to reconnect

I took some days away to unwind and recharge.

I read only a few pages but it was just what I needed.

But there was red wine, so everything is good.

Not to mention a beautiful white desert.

And to top it all off a mountainous oasis to relax.

So now it is back to reality and hopefully back on track with my reading.

(Y-11) Some extra art activities

For the past week, it has slipped my mind to talk about a new exhibition in the city’s museum of art.

This time is a photographic retrospective spanning five decades and the lenses of many photographers working on capturing the always intricated reality of our border city.

I am not sure until when the exhibition is going to be on display, but if you are in Ciudad Juarez or El Paso, you should go and check it out.

It would not disappoint.

Back to it then.

(Y-10) 15 days… the final leg

The final leg of my trips are upon me.

The most immediate one is our journey back home from Morelia.

This is where I have spent my last few days wandering around and watching my beautiful wife achieve another amazing goal.

This time was getting her PhD in architecture, I could not be prouder of her, she is simply amazing.

The other journey that is entering its final stage is my tenth year of reading.

On that note, I am happy to inform that The Wise Man’s Fear is finally on the read column.

Tomorrow I plan to update my list and post my total pages for this year.

There is no time to waste, I’ll dive right into the next book in my list, The Slow Regard of Silent Things, from the magnificent mind of Patrick Rothfuss, following one of his most enigmatic characters in The Kingkiller Chronicle, Auri.

happy readings

(Y-10) 18 days…. exploring

Yesterday I did a bit of exploring and a bit of reading.

Just went for a quick stroll to Downtown Morelia and enjoy the historic view.

And also visited the University’s central library, housed in a former Catholic temple.

To close out the day I sit in a beautiful courtyard and did some reading.

I reached page 832 of The Wise Man’s Fear, hopefully, I will finish it by the end of my trip.

Now let’s see what the day has in store.

(Y-10) A day for wandering

Yesterday was a very rich day for running around.

I went to one of my favorite spots in my fair city and catch up with some new art exhibition.

This time was The Trans Border Biennial ELP-JRZ 2018.

And, being a border town, this has a great impact on our way to visualize our relationship with not only the physical space that is the border but also all the psychological and emotional aspects that construct it.

There are some amazing pieces that capture this enigmatic place.

Be sure to check it out if you are around Ciudad Juarez.

It also gave me some free time to catch up with some reading.

I’m glad to say that the second volume of Lady Mechanika is under my belt and my current book, The Lone Drow, is past the half way mark, on page 195 of 370, to be precise.

Below you can see some of the cover of Lady Mechanika by the extraordinary artist Joe Benitez

Today I plan to do more of the same, what better way to commemorate 37 years on this beautiful planet than to be with my beautiful family and read some more.

Well, back to it.
