(Y-11) flowing into the weekend (day 7 of 31)

Just started the weekend in the best manner I can think of, reading on a rainy day sipping on a large cup of coffee.

Let me start off with the update of the daily reading challenge, from which I am glad to inform that it was victorious again, this time around the total pages for yesterday was 168.

My plans for this weekend of reading are as follow, make some headway with the Gardens of the Moon, currently on page 346 of 627, read the two latest volumes of the manga series The Legend of Zelda.

Already started with Minish Cap/Phantom Hourglass

Finally, I am going back to my roots and read the new collections of the now classic Spawn series by legendary writer/artist Todd McFarlane.

This was some of the first comics that I collected, and taking advantage that some of the collected editions are available on Kindle Unlimited, well, it is throwback time.

In other news, I finished Doctor Strange Epic Collection: Afterlife, and with this, I am inching closer to the 4,000-page mark.

3,769 pages to be precise.

Here I leave you with some images of the closing tale of Doctor Strange Collection, with some fantastic art by P. Craig Russell.

 

Another cool thing that happened, and being a sucker for statistics, is that Spotify sends me an email detailing my year of listening.

And apparently I spent 26,496 minutes, that is 441 hours of enjoying some sweet groves.

The song that kicked off this year was Real Love Baby by Father John Misty, and the first band I discovered was Lo Moon, if you have not listened to neither, do yourself a favor and do so immediately.

And lastly, the band that I listen to the most was, drum roll please, Arctic Monkeys, with a total of 52 hours, mostly enjoying their new album Tranquillity Base: Hotel & Casino.

I wonder what new bands are waiting for me on the never-ending digital musical landscape, well, I have a whole year to find out.

Now back to reading.

(Y-11) In the beginning

365 days and 53,000 pages are ahead of me.

On the closing of this first day of the eleventh year of reading , I can only feel grateful for still be doing this.

I have a lot of energy and ready to tackle whatever this year has to offer.

The good news is that I finished the first graphic novel of the year, Kick-Ass Volume 1, and with it the first 216 pages of the year.

Also, I am preparing to dive deep into one of the most complex and critically acclaimed fantasy world, The Malazan Book of the Fallen.

I’ll start with the first book, The Gardens of Moon by Steve Erikson .

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-10) 1 day…To the sound of rain.

Tomorrow is the last day of this year of reading.

It has been a blast and hopefully I will reach one last milestone to close out the year in style.

Right now, we are hole up in the house because what is left from hurricane Sergio is pouring some rain in our fair city, according to expert by tomorrow morning there is the probability of a couple of inches of total rain.

You might think that amount of rain is insignificant, but for our desert it’s a shit load.

I will take this time to finish reading my last graphic novels and making the final count of my pages.

By tomorrow night I’ll post my final numbers, toast this amazing year goodbye and get ready for what’s next.

Now back to reading.
