If I have any serious hopes to achieve my crazy ass goal of reading 100 books in one year, that is all I have, 2 days, 14 hours and 30 minutes for each one.
My main concern are really complex books, like, the Malazan Book of the Fallen, which are on my reading list for this year.
I think it will compensate with some of the more fluid books, but this will be a really big task, that I believe, in the end ,will give me a great deal of satisfaction.
For now I’ll jump into the next book in the Legend of Drizzt saga, The Silent Blade.
On the bright these bad boys came on the mail yesterday.
Caffeine come to me.
As you might expect some of my crazy ideas collide.
And well,I am torn between two notions that are the main goal for this year of reading.
Do I focus on my total page, around 96,000 pages for the year, or do I go for the gargantuan task of reading 100 books in one year.
Both are equally important task in my greater goal, but I know, at least for this year, there is only one path I can follow.
For now, I just keep on reading and wait to the right answer to present it self.
On another note, I just finished the first volume of Jason Aaron’s run on Doctor Strange, and did he delivered, I was reminded why he is one of my favorite characters and one of the most talented writers working on comic books right now.
And the art of Chris Bachalo, simply mesmerizing.
I have Volumes 2 and 3 line up and a long reading session with Drizzt .
Happy Readings !!!
Sorry for ghosting
Been reading and experiencing some changes.
I promise to keep this blog a little more updated .
So plans are brewing and could not be more happy about.
Well, yesterday was a productive day, not the 500 pages I would have liked but 218 pages is a big chunk of change.
Today I got a late start but let’s see how this chilly day fairs.
The one positive thing I have to announce is that my long awaited side project, “caffeine pilgrimage “will finally have it’s first entry, in which I plan to visit the ever growing number of coffee houses in my fair city, you know, consume the local flavors.
Expect this kind of entries to become a regular thing.
Back to it.
Well the first part of my crazy goal of reading is going well enough.
I started the seventh book of the Legend of Drizzt saga and read 60 pages so far.
I’ll keep at it for a little longer, probably reaching 100 before I get back to my lair.
In the afternoon, I have planned to ingest vast amounts of caffeine, been dying to try out my new coffee machine, try to finish The Lord of the Rings and finish the day with The Fall of Cthulhu graphic novel.
This days have been slow in all regards, I’m taking my sweet time for everything.
My reading has been slow but steady.
Tomorrow will be of exploring.
For now I’ll sit here read and listen to The War on Drugs.
Happy Readings !!!
In light of my plan, to go on to my holiday break with 6 books under my belt and 5,000 pages of total progress, apparently not coming true, I’ll have to reorginaze and probably add another book, three was the original plan, to the end of the year festivities.
For now my main focus will be finish the two books I’m reading , push back Dragonlance: The War of Souls and start head-on with the Legend of Drizzt saga, a 30 book fantasy galore awaits me.
But I’ll start with The Crystal Shard and take it from there.
I’ll keep you post it.
