(Y-11) January numbers

A quick update of my reading for January.

And yes I made a chart.

January 2019 Numbers

Those two spikes in my activity are the weekend of the 24in48 readathon, I wish that my head was I bit better, but there it is always the next one.

The positive thing is that I finished January on a high note, 161 pages for the last day of the month.

Right now, I’m beginning my journey thru the mesmerizing pages of one of my favorite comic book universe, Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.

To start off, B.P.R.D.: The Plague of Frogs Vol.1

BPRD Vol 1

Off to read.

(Y-11) Anxious to start.

Just 12 hours to go to start my second 24in48 readathon.

Here is my stack of books, in list form, not so attractive, but I’ll load a picture later, of course, of the books and graphic novels that I have in print because some of this is digital editions.

The Infinity Gauntlet 256

There isn’t enough time to read all of this, but I hope to go thru most of them, and at least start reading book XXIV of the Legend of Drizzt, which of course that would mean finish book XXIII.

My first reading session will start at 10:00 p.m. standard mountain time and it will be Gauntlgrym.

Now I’ll go rest my eyes and go on a snack run.

 

(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) Up and running

I started the year at the same pace as I finished last year.

My total reading for yesterday 248 pages and my total for the year went up to 9,506 pages.

I finished reading the third volume of X-O Manowar, still going on strong, I was amazed at how much I like it.

Also, I started reading what is considered one of the best comic book written by Warren Ellis, Transmetropolitan.

Spider Jerusalem has to go back to the city, and he is really pissed about it.

On the book front, I did something that hasn’t happen in a long time, read more than 25 pages in one day.

Currently on page 201.

Also, I had a bit of time and did some updates on my bullet journal.

Things are brightening up.

My goals of reading writing remain the same, try to read 146 daily pages and write at least once a day in this blog.

Now back to reading.

(Y-11) Chasing those pages.

I was browsing through all of the titles available in my Kindle Unlimited account, and I stumble upon the great discovery that most of the Valiant Comics Universe are available to read for free.

So, my next inquiry was in what order to read them, and I stumble upon a fellow WordPress user with a really comprehensive list to read these amazing titles in order.

If you are interested you can find the post from So You May Follow.

I have approximately 90 trade paperbacks to go through.

I love it when only by chance you find a whole new universe to dwell on.

Happy Readings.

(Y-11) I’ll need a moment (day 14 of 31)

Yesterday was yet again another great day of reading, 169 total pages.

Today started a bit slow and it got worse.

In the afternoon I had all of the intention of doing a bit of reading, but dear old Netflix got in the way.

This time in the form of Alfonso Cuaron’ s new film, Roma.

A true masterpiece set in Mexico City of the 1970’s, this is a story that will stick with me for a while.

I won’t spoil anything, but turn on Netflix and watch a master at his best.

Right now, I’ll enjoy a night out with my beautiful wife as we celebrate 11 glorious years of marriage.

My reading can take the back seat for tonight.

(Y-11) struggling…just a bit (day 11 of 31)

Yesterday was another great, I had a total of 163 pages.

Today, not so great, only five pages and, it is almost 10:00 p.m.

But I am not going to panic, I’ll just take it one page at a time and go from there.

I think for this task the services of Mr. Caffeine are in order.

Let’s see how it plays out.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-11) Monstruos Day (day 8 of 31)

Yesterday was a sensational day for my reading.

The total for yesterday’s reading session was a whopping 338 pages.

This was thanks to finishing reading the first volume of Spawn Origins, reading the first part of The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap/Phantom Hourglass and a bit of headway with Gardens of the Moon, currently on page 351 of 627.

The plan for today is to finish The Phantom Hourglass part of The Legend of Zelda, read some more from the first volume of The Malazan Book of Fallen.

Also, I’ll try start to read the second volume of Spawn Origins, for this one is kind of unique because on this volume there are collected some issues written by three comic book legends, Frank Miller, Alan Moore, and Neil Gaiman, that only makes it extra special.

My primary goal is to hit the 300-page mark for the three days of the weekend, one down two to go.

So now let’s see how my numbers are.

  • Total pages for (Y-11) : 3,929 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve first milestone (10,000 pages): 6,071 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve the main goal of the year (53,000 pages): 49,071 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the second-best year of reading (32,001 pages): 28,072 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the best year of reading (47,705 pages): 43,776 pages.

I am just a little step to reach 4,000 pages for the year, I can almost savor it.

In other number related news, my total for the entire project is slowly, but surely, growing.

And it is currently at 236,796 pages, just 13,204 pages are between me and that first quarter of a million pages read.

So, in the wake of this new information, and taking into account my crazy personality, my new obsession for this year will be to chip away that those pages left to reach the first 1/4 of my goal.

Naturally, I will integrate this new numbers into my daily countdown.

For now, I’ll get back to reading.
