(Y-11) Shelves, Bullet Journal, and some reading

At one week from the beginning of this new leg of my journey thru 1,000,000 pages, I find myself slowly progressing thru my reading tasks.

This week was one with some physical adjustments to part of my book collection, this is because of thinking, for more than a year, of getting some new bookshelves for the living room, well it finally happened.

And as fast as the carpenter install them, they were filled up almost to capacity, I still have some room to squeeze book on double rows, but for now, I am pleased to finally have all the shelf space I envisioned when we first moved into this house 6 years ago.

On the front of my physical system to keep track of my reading, I am pleased to say that this year is looking like one that my bullet journal will not be missing any daily entry.

Now, for my current reading, I’ll start by saying that I am working on two books, Frankenstein: 200th Anniversary Edition and the first part of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Gardens of the Moon.

I was reading this book on my Kindle, but now with me organizing my new shelves, I found a physical copy that I bought about 12 years ago, needless to say, the physical copy will always win over any digital version of any book.20181021_093902-1884013414.jpg

Also, I finish reading Red Sonja: The Falcon Throne, an extraordinary story by Marguerite Bennett and beautifully illustrated by Aneke and Marguerite Sauvage.

Right now I am reading Red Sonja: The Art of Blood and Fire by one of my favorite comic book authors Gail Simone and illustrated by Walter Geovani and Ivan Rodriguez.

Now let us talk about the scary numbers for this year of reading, the situation goes as follow:

  • Total pages for (Y-11) : 394 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve first milestone (10,000 pages): 9,606 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve the main goal of the year (53,000 pages): 52,606 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the second-best year of reading (32,001 pages): 31,607 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the best year of reading (47,705 pages): 47,311 pages.

I started slow, but eventually, I’ll pick up the pace, and my main focus is to achieve 10,000 pages by the end of December, wish me luck.

Now back to reading and, to enjoy this cloudy lazy Sunday, which, consequently is my son’s 7th birthday.

I see lots of pizza and cake in our future.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-11) can’t sleep

This is one those nights than my insomnia kicks in.

My mind enters this weird state of semi-consciousness, not asleep but not awake.

So, I’ll take advantage of being like this and try to do some reading.

To start the evenings program I’ll take a stroll alongside Red Sonja, The She-Devil with a Sword, on a adventure named The Falcon Throne.

And to close out the night a bit of action with Gardens of the Moon, which it forebears a true delight for the journey I just started thru the Malaz Empire.

Hopefully, I’ll hit my the 146 pages per day mark, and probably can get a bit of rest.

Back to it then.
