(Y-10) 13 days…one final breath before the plunge

This is the final call for year number ten.

I finished The Slow Regard of Silent Things, and it will mark the final book of this year of reading.

For the next 13 days, I’ll focus on comics and graphic novels and try to get as close as possible to my primary goal, which was, if you can remember, read more than the past two years combined.

But getting back to Mr. Rothfuss’ book, what a beautiful and haunting piece of work, I already loved Auri and with this novella that only grew exponentially.

This was a perfect book to finish the year.

To start off this intense period of reading, I’ll go back to reading one of the characters that got me into comic books, Spawn.

The anti-hero creation of Todd McFarlane is way past its 200 issues, but I’ll get into one of the recent storylines, Endgame, which start on issue 185.

So, let us talk now about numbers, the come as follow:

  • Total pages for (Y-10) : 30,551 pages.
  • Pages to reach 30,000: COMPLETED
  • Pages to go to achieve the primary goal of this year (read more than the two last years combined): 3,183 pages.
  • And lastly, Pages to go to reach my ultimate milestone (best year ever of reading): 17,154 pages.

I know that 3,000 pages are a lot, but I aim to get as close as possible.

Onward then, to read.

(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) 40 days…tick tock goes the clock

Every time I am edging closer to the zero-hour.

Right now I have a shit load of assignments, and my procrastinating ass has not worked on my daily planner to squeeze some reading time.

So, with that in mind, I have 5,842 pages to reach my goal and 40 days to do it.

That is 147 pages per day.

On my daily planner, I will have to keep track on my progress and try to hit the minimal daily progress each and every day.

My will is there.

I am walking a very fine line, any false movement will throw me off, the plot thickens.

The menu for today: The Wise Man’s Fear (starting on page 348) and The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina Time (beginning on page 34)

Onward then, into the unknown.
