(Y-11) Getting closer

With only a few days left to the 24in48 readathon, I still think what to read.

But primarily, my focus should be on finishing Deadhouse Gates, currently on page 545.

So I’ll take a brief moment to get you up to speed of my recent progress.

My total for yesterdays reading was 50 pages, and I managed to finish the first volume of Green Lanterns: Rage Planet, part of the DC Comics Universe Rebirth, and featuring one of the best villains in recent Green Lantern history, Atrocitus.

Here you can delight in one of the covers.

And here is the infographic sheet generated with Bookly.

The next graphic novel on my queue is Batman: Earth One, which I think will be amazing because of the team-up of two legends, Geoff Johns and Gary Frank.

Back to it, and hopefully tomorrow I can post an update on my numbers for the year.

(Y-11) Into a Trance

Today marks the end of the NFL playoffs, it is one weekend off, and on the 3rd of February, it is the big game, the Superbowl.

I am not that invested on the game, but I do want to watch it, it will be my 32 consecutive years enjoying the game, it was Superbowl XXI, the New York Giants defeated the Denver Broncos.

So now I’ll go into a significant reading trance.

Firstly, to finish Deadhouse Gates by Friday morning, currently on page 520, and picking up the pace.

This is because, at 10:00 p.m. on Friday, I’ll start the 24in48 readathon, in order to match the official starting time, which is 12:00 a.m. Eastern Standard Time, I have to begin at this hour because I am on the Mountain Standard Time, that is 2 hours behind, and on Sunday I should wrap up by 9:59 p.m.

I intend to start reading Gauntlgrym, part of The Legend of Drizzt saga, as the inaugural book of this my second readathon. Hence the need to finish with Deadhouse Gates.

I am gathering my other material for reading, which is comprised mainly of digital and printed graphic novels and comics.

And just to close out this post and get back to reading, I’ll like to say that my total for yesterday was 94 pages.

Clawing my way back slowly.

Back to it then.

(Y-11) Bob Dylan is my co-pilot

Yesterday’s reading was acceptable, 58 pages.

I read some of the first volume of Green Lanterns, it is always great to see the fantastic art of Ethan Van Sciver gracing the pages of any story featuring the emerald knight.

As you can see in the picture below an extraordinary testament of Mr. Van Sciver talents.

So, today I took upon myself to fill my day with lots of reading, tea, coffee, and of course lots of music.

I started the day with The Clash, then passed to The War on Drugs and Le Butcherettes, and I am about to close out the day with none other than Bob Dylan.

Kind of a weird pairing for a trek thru the holy desert of Raraku, but good old Bob fits splendidly anywhere.

And speaking of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, I have reach page 500 of Deadhouse Gates, and still, have some gas left on the engine, so I intend to read 3/4 of the book, which means getting to page 524.

I’ll get back to it then.

(Y-11) Some growth

Yesterday my reading went up a little bit.

My total was 68 pages, and at this moment I’ll take any kind of forward momentum.

I finished the second volume of J.H. Williams III Batwoman, honestly, what an amazing book.

Also, I started reading the first volume of Green Lanterns, part of the DC Universe Rebirth.

So, this weekend will be mainly for catching up with my reading, watching the Conference Championship Games of the NFL, and organizing my reading for next weekend’s 24in48 readathon, this includes finishing Deadhouse Gates, currently on page 455.

Well, now back to it.

(Y-11) Slow day

Yesterday was another steady one for my reading, as the day before that my total was 41 pages.

Now, I have about one week to finish Deadhouse Gates, currently on page 441 and get ready for the 24in48 readathon.

I’ll try to finish off the night by reading for a bit and probably tomorrow I’ll post some of the books and graphic novels I plan to read for the readathon.

For now, my focus remains on closing out with my book and get ready to go back to the Forgotten Realms.

Back to it then.

(Y-11) can’t sleep, can’t read.

I am trying to take it slowly, ease into my reading rhythm from December, but I think it has gone too far and I am losing precious ground.

My total for yesterday was 41, better than the 14 from the day before that.

This mainly because a bit of my insomnia has been rattling around.

It basically turns my head into mulch.

Hence can’t fall asleep but I am not fully functional.

I have to get energy from my project and get back on track.

Fortunately, there are really cool things coming.

New winds.

New sections for the blog.

And a new life to old sections.

So, in the spirit of catching my rhythm again, I will close out the day reading some Batwoman, mesmerizing work.

And to put the cherry on top of all of this, I’ll read my quota of Deadhouse Gate.

Off to reading.

(Y-11) Old habits

Yesterday was back to old forms, that is reading a ridiculously small amount of pages.

My total was 14 pages, all of which from Deadhouse Gates, currently on page 421, and that only can mean that I have fallen behind of my book reading and my total pages.

With this, I have fallen 18 days behind my reading schedule and a small amount with my book.

But I do have one silver lining, with me finishing the first volume of Batwoman the 11,000-page mark has been surpassed.

I’ll grab this little momentum to get back on form, 146 pages a day and a little over 10 days to the 24in48 readathon.

Back to reading.

(Y-11) Some light

Yesterday was a good day of reading, not above my minimum for each day, but over 100 pages.

106 to be precise.

I finished reading Batwoman: Hydrology, what a fantastic book, beautifully executed.

I am going to start working on the second volume, and my expectation is really high.

I keep on working on the Deadhouse Gates, which by the way I accompanied with a really nice glass of wine, a present that came all the way from Italy.

 

I’ll try to make some headway tonight and push to catch my rhythm again.

Now back to reading.

azr.

(Y-11) picking up the pace.

I have reached my page quota for the day, on my book of course, and right now I’m working on the first volume of Batwoman, what a beautiful piece of work, and it also incorporated some Latin American legend, in this case, La Llorona.

I won’t spoil anything, you must definitely read it.

But going back to Deadhouse Gates, I am currently on page 407, past the halfway point, and it is getting more complex and exciting.

I think I’ll read another chapter of both Deadhouse Gates and Batwoman and then hit the hay because tomorrow it is the beginning of classes on my Master’s degree program.

Back to it then.
