(Y-11) Midpoint Day

I have arrived to the halfway of my year of reading.

And with 22,029 pages of total reading, I am almost on schedule to read my ultimate goal of 53,000 pages.

Today , I’ll celebrate my efforts with a couple of drinks and lots of reading.

Cheers!

(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
The Infinity War 376

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.
