(Y-12) Quarantined days, Update 26

I have been away reading, mostly.

I still have a long way to go on my ultimate goal for this year, 50,000 pages.

I have 45 days left, and about 8,000 pages to go.

But as I said before, one page at a time.

For this weekend I am locked in with two goals.

First, to finish The Bonehunters

According to Bookly, I still have about 4 hours, this book is really complex, and has a vast amount of characters,, so my reason has been really slow, but I am sure this weekend will suffice to get it done.

This will put me over my minimal goal of reading for this year, which was 41,665 pages, a pretty successful year.

The other thing I plan to achieve is to reach my monthly goal of pages, once again using Bookly to track my reading.

That’s 775 pages to go, so I’ll mix in some comic books, and this goal will be surpassed easily.

So, with that in mind, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Quarantined days Update 19

With the few days left on July I plan to go all out and try to knock down some of my challenges.

My focus turns to my Bookly month Challenge.

That’s 856 pages in three days, pretty doable.

To close out my night, I’ll go to a galaxy far, far away, and follow the misadventures of a bunch of scoundrels and bounty hunters.

For now, I am off to read.

I hope everyone is safe and healthy.

Yesterday was the last day of the weeklong #StayAtHomeReadathon organized by the reading tracking app Bookly.

The task was to read 25 hours between April 13 and April 19.

That’s about 3.5 hours per day.

On those 1,685 total pages are more than amazing.

This days I’ll try to finish another book, and keep on chipping away at those pages.

Yesterday was a really good day of reading, 441 total pages, and I finished a couple of classic DC Comics storylines, Zero Hour and Flashpoint.

And today I’ll continue my adventure thru the DC Comics Multiverse, now it is the time for Batman/Flash: The Button, and Doomsday Clock.

Also, I finished Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, and I have to say that it blew me away, I didn’t think it was going to be so good, it was such the case that I read it in one day.

Now I’ll focus on Guillermo del Toro’s novelization of The Shape of Water.

Stay safe.

Stay healthy.

For now, I am off to read.

Hope everyone is keeping safe and healthy.

I am participating on the Bookly latest readathon, a pretty good way to pass this hard times, a bit of light in all of this darkness.

The main goal is to read 25 hours between April 13 to April 19.

So far I have read

Monday 2 hours and 42 minutes

Tuesday 1 hour and 27 minutes

And today, so far, I have read 1 hour and 24 minutes.

That gives me a total of 5 hours and 33 minutes.

Not bad.

Hopefully, I’ll finish the day over 7 hours.

Now for the important part, what I am reading.

I am about to finish The Night of the Hunter, the 25th book of the Legend of Drizzt saga, it’s always a pleasure be back at Faerûn.

I will start the next volume, Rise of the King, this alongside the novelization of the Academy award winning movie The Shape of Water, directed by the amazing Guillermo del Toro.

In the comic book/graphic novel front, I’ll be revisiting some classic DC comics storylines, Zero Hour and Flashpoint.

This as a prelude to read to some events that I haven’t got around to see, The Button and Doomsday Clock.

I have a lot of great material ahead, and a great challenge to tackle.

For now, I am off to read.

Keep safe and healthy.

This is shaping up to be an amazing year of reading.

I’m proud to say that my reading schedule is being fulfilled splendidly, in fact, I am 18 days ahead on my reading.

(Y-12) results of my week long readathon

This passed week was spent participating in the first Bookly readathon, you could either read for 20 hours or read 2020 pages.

I chose the latter.

It was a pretty productive, even though I could not reach the goal, I made some really good progress.

The other cool thing is that I finished the fifth book of the thrilling Star Wars series, New Jedi Order, now, all out war with the Yuuzhan Vong, slowly they are starting to gain ground, and a corridor to the Core Planets.

Now, I’ll turn my attention to the reimagining of two of my favorite mythologies, Mexican and Nordic.

I started off with Mr. Bowles book, which is published by Cinco Punto Press, an amazing local book editors of our sister city of El Paso, Texas.

Also, I’ll keep on adventuring on the mythical land of Azeroth, for this occasion I will be reading a trilogy by Richard A. Knaak, The Sunwell Trilogy.

For now, I am off to read, and to prepare a new post of my total progress.
