(Y-12) There is always a first time for everything

Right now I will be closing down my day with a bit of reading.

More specifically with a couple of great adventures.

Yesterday, late at night, I finished the fourth book of the amazing series The New Jedi Order, set 25 years after Episode IV, A New Hope.

With a new threat coming from outside the knowed galaxies, the New Republic must rallie to put a stop to the relentless Yuuzhan Vong.

We finally see the reappearance of our favorite scoundrel, Han Solo, who has been laying low after the tragedy in Serndipal, were he losses his partner in crime, Chewbacca.

But with this warriors cast wrecking havoc on the galaxy, Han must put his mourning aside, and fight once again for the faith of the galaxy.

Let’s see what’s in store in the fifth book of the series, Agents of Chaos-Jedi Eclipse.

The other adventure is an amazing graphic by José Luis Pescador, La caída de Tenochtitlan.

In which the everyday life inside the Aztec empire is beautifully depicted, and how the winds of war came rushing in to take down the gem that was the beautiful city of Tenochtitlan, the heart of the Aztec power.

This graphic is only available in Spanish, but I highly recommend that you learn the language in order to enjoy this amazing piece of art.

In other news, and for the first time in all of the twelve years I have been keeping track of my reading, I am on schedule, in fact, I am a bit ahead.

And to celebrate, I will read some more.

(Y-12) Aiming for the first 10,000 pages

I am getting really close to the first 10,000 pages of these twelve year of reading.

Currently, I have a total of 9,280 pages, and my plan is to reach the coveted 10,000 by this weekend, which is perfect because I’ll combine some reading with the second round of the NFL playoffs.

Also, I’ll close the extension of my Star Wars month-long marathon, which started on December, this with some graphic novels, and two novels from The New Jedi Order series.

After closing this amazing marathon of one of my favorite universes, I’ll officially start my new reading mode.

Read whatever the fuck pops into my head.

No one genre or series.

A panoply of choices.

I wonder what I’ll read next.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Happy New Year

Happy New Year, from us in Lost in a Million Pages, and we sincerely hope that this upcoming year will kick ass in all your endeavors.

I had an amazing 2019, as always it was full of ups and downs, but in general terms, it was a pretty amazing, and full of growth.

In the case of this blog, I saw an amazing increase in my followers and visits to the site.

STATS 2019 WP

As you can see, we had 2,380 hits this year, which is a 124% growth from the previous year, and for 2020 I have amazing new plans, and hopefully, you will enjoy the crazy new ideas that I have in store.

One of the greatest surprises for me was the new countries from which they visit my blog, places like Indonesia or India, never in my wildest dreams would we have imagined this, and we are more than thrilled.

Now let us talk about some of my numbers.

The month of December was dedicated solely to celebrating the last movie of the Skywalker Saga, The Rise of Skywalker, with that in mind, I just read some stories of the original Expanded Universe of Star Wars, and some new stories that made up the new canon of this beloved universe.

I must say that it was a really productive month, I registered 4,341 pages, this over 2 books, 17 graphic novels, and 8 comics.

And with that my total for this, the twelve years of reading, to 8,292 pages.

My immediate plans are to finish two books from the series The New Jedi Order; Agents of Chaos, and the graphic novel Epic Collection: The Rise of the Sith.

With this, I’ll be alternating between some epic sagas like The Malazan Book of the Fallen and The Legend of Drizzt, with some of the stories of the Star Wars Expanded universe, mixed in with some Cormac Mccarthy, Alan Moore, and Brian Catling.

In lamest terms, I do not have a specific genre I will be focusing on this upcoming year.

My focus is on closing the gap between my reading schedule for (Y-12), from which I am behind 9 days, and achieving the first 500,000 pages goal, that has a deadline for March 20, 2023, and with my current calculations, I have a tentative achieving date of March 23, 2028, need to reduce those five years.

 With a whole new year ahead of me and lots of plans buzzing around in my head, I foresee an amazing year full of new achievements, and new challenges to tackle.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Weekly report, December 22 to 29

Another great week of reading, I still have some days left on my winter break, I get back to my normal routine on January 13.

With that in mind, I am aiming to get to 11,000 registered pages before that date.

Right now I’ll work on two stories from my Star Wars Marathon, the New Jedi Order book, and the graphic novel The Rise of Sith.

Off to read.

(Y-12) Days filled with reading

This winter break has been an amazing one.

I have passed the 3,500 pages mark, and with 5 days to go, I know the 7,130 goal will not be, but I will be close to 5,000 pages, and it will be my best month recorded since I started keeping my records.

Right now the Star Wars marathon is still in effect, just finished the third book of The New Jedi Order, a series compiled of 19 books, and I will start the fourth book, Agents of Chaos I-Hero’s Trial, and the return of captain Solo, this after tragedy struck on the first book.

Also, I am reading the adventures of an Imperial operative during the rebellion era.

And just finished Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison, in which the Dark Lord of the Sith investigates a plot to eliminate Emperor Palpatine, and has to go looking for the legendary Ghost Prison, a facility for extremely dangerous criminals that the Jedi Order secretly created.

This month has been really productive, and if my estimation is accurate, I should pass my worst year of reading, which was a little over 8,000 pages, really soon.

For now, I am off to read.

(Y-12) Level up and achievement unlocked

I have reached Level 21 on the Bookly app, that means 190 hours of reading using the app.

The next level is on the other side of 20 hours if reading, let’s see if I can achieve it before the year’s end.

Also, I unlocked another achievement on the app, read 100 books.

I am about an hour away from finishing the third book of the magnificent series The New Jedi Order, in Dark Tide-Ruin, the Yuuzhan Vong keep on advancing with their plans if galactic conquest, and the fragile New Republic is not quite ready for the incursion of such a perilous foe.

Will the Jedi rise up to the occasion once again?

Will see, for I still have 18 books ahead of me.

For now, I am off to read, happy holidays.

(Y-12) Up for the challenge

My insomnia has kicked in, and as always, I will take advantage of it.

With exactly one week to go on this amazing 2019, I have to put the pedal to the metal and try to reach my self appointed crazy challenge for this December.

I never shy away from a challenge.

To keep things rolling, I’ll continue reading some more stories from a galaxy far, far away.

To begin this early morning, I’ll dive into the fourth volume of the amazing Star Wars series Doctor Aphra.

Let’s chase those pages.

I am off to read.

(Y-12) In the middle of things

I have just passed the middle of this last month of reading in this spectacular 2019.

I will make a full report of my total pages read on this my twelve year of reach, which has surpassed the 6,000-page mark, tomorrow morning.

For what concerns this month of reading, I have just passed the 2000-page mark, of the whopping 7,000 goal.

These days have been a bit hectic, but with my kids just about to go on winter break, I foresee some very productive days ahead of me.

The other exciting thing coming up is the premiere of Star Wars Episode IX, which I am going to see on Friday night, in the meantime, I will still be knee-deep in all Star Wars stuff I can get my hands on.

As you can see in the pictures below, I have read quite a few stories, I highly recommend the series Doctor Aphra and the Tie-In story, The Screaming Citadel.

Also, I plan to get thru the whole movie saga by Friday, currently, I am on Episode VI.

To finish off the day, I’ll keep on reading the third book of the amazing series The New Jedi Order, Dark Tyde-Ruin.

Off to read.

(Y-12) the state of things

This is the fifth day of my month-long Star Wars marathon, and things are moving along quite nicely.

To start off, I have been rocking some great Star Wars gear, and hopefully will keep on doing it until I go and watch the last chapter of one of my favorite movies, The Rise of Skywalker.

Also, I have read volumes 6 and 7 of the on-going Star Wars series, I liked volume 7 a lot, it is pretty cool how they linked our favorite classic rebels with the one seen on Rogue One, and of this on the decimated planet Jedha.

And to top off this Star Wars extravaganza, I have finished the comic book series leading up to The Rise of Skywalker, Allegiance, a four-part miniseries, that depicts our friends of the Resistance in desperate need of a new fleet and weapons, I would not go any further than that, you should check it out.

With all this reading, I have just passed the 700 page mark, a good start to what seems to be an amazing winter break.

I am off to read.
