(Y-9) 51 days…

The last couple of weeks have been a bit hard and honestly, I can seem to find my train of thought.

But finally, to the soothing sound of rain, last night I finished my first piece of reading material in over a month.

It was a graphic novel, Crimson Vol.1,  it follows the misadventures of a teenager turned vampire by the name Alex Elder. My favorite character is definitely Joe, a Mexican Indian vampire that becomes Alex’s mentor.

Illustrated by Humberto Ramos, it’s a must have.

 

With this, I’m inching closer to one of the important milestone of this crazy project, 200,000 pages.

I’m only 122 pages off.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-9) Tick, Tock the clock goes (aka the 60 day march)

Well, here I am, staring down the last 60 days of this year of reading.

And a long ass road to get where this project must be.

So, here is the current reading situation.

I have read 21 of the 36 proposed books. Not that bad.

In the page count, I have 15,942 of the 27,300 minimal progress to deem this year a productive one.

That gives me 11, 358 pages to tackle.

One of the positive things of my final count is that I’m only 282 pages short to reach 200,000. This means that I have some celebratory wine and pizza on the horizon, this is a tradition with my wife, it all started when I read the first 100,000.

In the meantime, I have about 190 pages to read per day and a whole lot of caffeine in my future.

As my bullet journal can tell it’s has been a bloody awful time (pun intended).

 

I’ll start with the three currently in my reading pile, Jerusalem by Alan Moore, México Mutilado by Francisco Martin Moreno and Star Wars: Tyrant’s Test by Michael P. Kube-McDowell.

And one final thing.

I have never been so motivated to take this journey.

Thanks for listening.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-9) Cloudy art filled day

Yesterday afternoon was one of those days that really charge up my batteries.

To start it was a beautiful overcast day.

And to top it off I went to see some amazing art with my favorite person in the world.

Our stroll was through the event held every Last Thursday of the month in our sister city of El Paso, Texas.

It’s a great place to hang-out, there’s art, pop-up galleries, music, food and many other things roaming around.

Our first stop was an art piece Paradox by local artist Laura Turon.

This refurbishes school bus is covered in a geometrical pattern.

From there a quick visit El Paso Museum of Art, where, apart from the impressive collection of the museum, we got to see the current exhibitions: The Red That Colored the World and Spirit Lines: Helen Hardin Etchings. Both amazing in their how regard. If you are in El Paso Area don’t miss the opportunity to visit the Museum.

As the Sun set, we took a seat in a small plaza next to the museum, just to take this magnificent day in.

Now I feel recharged to tackle this last 77 days of my reading year.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-9) red, red and more red

Again, for this six days reading period, red was the color of choice.

In the last 6 days, I have read a total 118 pages, when in fact I should have a total of 630 pages,  not what I’ll like.

So, with that in mind, I gave myself a few tasks to complete before the month end.

  • Finish My Name is Red
  • Finish Crimson Vol. 1
  • Reach Page 250 of Jerusalem
  • Reach the halfway point of  Star Wars: Tyrant’s Test.

A few simple things to get me going again.

Which incidentally, I desperately need.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-9) a belated birthday present.

Today, among other things, I had the chance to catch up with a good friend, whom, consequently, gave me two really cool gifts.

the first was the graphic novel of Fight Club 2, the novel by Chuck Palahniuk is one of my favorite book, I’m eager to see what new trouble Mr. Durden is brewing.

 
The other gift was an illustration for the cover page of my bullet journal, if I was loving my new journal this only makes it more special.

Also, I finished reading Star Wars: Shiel of Lies, this gives me a total of 15,525 pages in the year and only 16 books to go.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-9) Seeing Red

I’m on the verge of finishing one of my digital Star Wars books. if all goes well by the early afternoon it will be done.

Also, I keep pounding away at Jerusalem and My Name is Red.

I have 84 days left in this ninth year of reading, 17 books and 12,037 pages stand in the way of a successful year.

In light of this numbers yesterday evening I took a little time to try and advance with my reading, it was mildly successful, with lots of caffeine and some reading.

Seeing my journal and the progress for the last few days I find something disturbing.

I’m seeing an awful lot of red.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-9) A storm 

This last few days I haven’t read that much.

Can’t find my train of thought.

Counting last weekend and this three days of the week I have only read 65 pages.

I’m going to push forward and hopefully some focus should present itself.

Here you can see what I like to call “The Chaos of Lost in a Million Pages”.

A hard rain is coming.

Happy Readings!!!
