(Y-12) Frankenstein and Día de los Muertos

Just in time for Día de los muertos, I have successfully finish this year’s reading of Frankenstein.

As always I find new thing, and my perspective of this 201 years old book is always fresh and exciting, that is why I keep coming back to it.

Right now I’ll work on Dragonero Vol. 19, and later in the evening, we will go and visit the traditional altars in remembrance of those who have left us.

I promise some pictures.

Off to read.

(Y-11) Dia de Muertos

Yesterday was my favorite Mexican holiday, Dia de Muertos, The Day of the Dead.

It is a special celebration, in which, we honor our dearly departed by putting their pictures and all of the things that they loved the most.

On the University’s grounds each year, the students and faculty, put up the traditional “altares” many dedicated to famous figures of Mexican and international cultures.

A really colorful celebration celebrating the life of our loved ones.

And with this day my Monster Mash period comes to a close and of the eleven tasks, which include reading horror books and watching some classic horror movies, I only completed two, reading the first volume of Hellboy in Hell and watching the new Halloween movie, so better luck next year.

The other good thing is that I finally started reading the second volume of Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing run, just a few pages in and it is already surpassing all expectations.

For now, I’ll work on this graphic novel and try to make some headway with Gardens of the Moon, currently on page 147 of 645.

The plan is to work my way thru the main storyline of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, that is, the ten novels written by Canadian author Steven Erikson and then jump back in with the infamous Drow Drizzt Do’Urden and continue my journey in the Forgotten Realms.

Now let’s talk numbers:

  • Total pages for (Y-11) : 1,254 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve first milestone (10,000 pages): 8,746 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve the main goal of the year (53,000 pages): 51,746 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the second-best year of reading (32,001 pages): 30,747 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the best year of reading (47,705 pages): 46,451 pages.

Now back to it, for the night is dark and full of reading.
