(Y-11) Lights on

Finally, after 14 hours, the lights, and more importantly the A/C has comeback on.

Hopefully it will stay that way, and with the final days of reading before I hit the mark of 50 days to go on my year of reading, I’ll try to get down my total left to 11,000.

As I did yesterday, I will continue with the second volume of the graphic adaptation of the legendary Elric.

As the night falls, and heat does not gives in, I’ll be better be off to read.

(Y-11) Lights out

For the second night in a row we have experienced a total blackout, this means no A/C , and with the weather nice and crisp around 31 degrees Celsius, about 88 degrees Fahrenheit.

So what better way to forget this heat than with a sweaty midnight reading.

Because the lights are out and the batteries on my reading lamp are going out, I’ll have to read on my cellphone.

For this candlelight evening there is going to be a special guest, Elric of Melniboné.

The legendary albino created by Michael Moorcock.

Let’s hope the lights come back soon, if not at least I’ll have some great company.

Off to read.

(Y-11) new comic books and close to another milestone

Today I went to picked up some back issues that were back order and picked up a few other things.

With these I almost complete my Dragonero collection, it has 17 issues printed in Mexico, this of the more of 50 that exist in Italy.

I grabbed the third issue of the paranormal adventures of Dylan Dog, and back order the first two issues.

And finally, a couple of graphic novels.

The Magic Order by Mark Millar and Transmetropolitan, the third volume, by Warren Ellis.

On the front of my total reading for this year, I am really close to 38,000 pages and pledged to reach 40,000 by the 15 of this month, that gives me 12 days to read a little over 2,000 pages.

And on that note.

Off to read.

(Y-11) trying to close the gap

I have been a little slow on my reading, so I am trying to make up for lost time.

I was planning to have about 14,000 pages to go by August 1, and right now I have about 14,780 pages to go.

Still a good chunk, but I’ll focus on chipping away that number, and getting my estimated date of reaching 500,000 pages even closer.

So, the immediate plan is to be close to 10,500 pages to go when I reach 55 days to go on my reading year, which is 20 days away.

For this, I will employ the help of my trustworthy friends, graphic novels.

On tonight’s menu, there is a couple of them, really different styles if graphic narrative.

On one side the psychedelic writing of Grant Morrison’s Doom Patrol.

On the other the quirky world of John Allison’s Giant Days.

Both have been incredibly fun.

Now to keep on pounding away on those amazing stories.

Off to read.

(Y-11 ) final reading session of the week

I enter this last reading session with a bit over 13 hours on the reading clock and two amazing days of progress.

I want to closeout not only the week but also the month of June, which has been historical for this blog, with a bang.to help me out to close this down, I’ll invoke the help of the third volume of the fantasy series Pathfinder, based on the Role-playing game.

And try to chip away a bit more of Memories of Ice, currently on page 122.

Also tomorrow I’ll made a numbers update.

Off to read.

(Y-11) for this evening’s reading and drinking.

I’ll try to chip off more time and pages before I succumb to sleep.

For this evening’s reading I will be starting with Doctor Voodoo and collection of tales from The Dark Crystal.

Also, I’ll go to work on Fire & Blood, right now the history has turned to Aegon The Dragon progeny, amazing stuff.

For the drinking, I’ll be trying a new variety of coffee from my favourite local roasters, Casa Cafetzin this particular one comes from the state of Chiapas, and it’s called Pantelhô.

Now back to reading.

(Y-11) slow day…for reading

Today has been progressing like rapidly, I have tried to find some time to read but has not been that successful.

Right now I am waiting, so it is the perfect time to read, and my legendary friend Drizzt will do nicely.

When I get back home I’ll read a new graphic novel that I bought yesterday on the book fair, and it is from a local comic book company, 656 comics.

At first glance it looks stunning.

(Y-11) cloudy day…perfect for reading

The day started off in the most perfect, really cloudy and a bit cold for this time of year.

With this perfect morning I could finish The Sandman book and I will start a new graphic novel, Animal by Colo.

dib>buks was establish in 2004, and their HQ are located in Madrid, Spain.

You can check out the complete catalog here I plan to steadily add more of their amazing books to my shelves.

But for now, I’ll spend my Sunday morning drinking coffee and catching up with some of my reading.

(Y-11) Thickening my book shelfs

I just bought the first volume of the Spanish version of the now classic series of Prince Valiant by Hal Foster.

According to the information of the editor, this new reprint will collect the series starting from 1937 until the most recent addition to this classic on 2018.

Each book will comprise a year and apparently will possibly expand over more than 70 volumes, coming out twice a month, up until volume 20, when it changes to once a week.

Sometimes this type of collections are hard to find, for they run out quickly.

But hopefully, I’ll stay sharp and complete this amazing collection.
