(Y-12) Tick, Tock

With one day left on this year/month, it is evident that the gargantuan task I put on myself, to read 7,130 pages in December, will not be meant, but what great fun it has been.

As you can see above, I just passed 4,000 pages, and I can help but wonder how much more can I chip away at this challenge.

Let’s see.

I am off to read, but I’ll keep you post it.


Goodreads 2019 Reading Challenge, preliminary numbers

As the year comes to a close, I always like to see my stats and the beautiful infographic information that Goodreads generate.

I must confess that this year I didn’t use it quite as often as before, and only now I have taken my physical reading registry and passed it into Goodreads.

So you can see my numbers so far, I have digitalized up until August, and hopefully by tomorrow I will finish the rest.

For now in the link below you can see my reading log in Goodreads, still missing somethings.



(Y-12) Weekly report, December 22 to 29

Another great week of reading, I still have some days left on my winter break, I get back to my normal routine on January 13.

With that in mind, I am aiming to get to 11,000 registered pages before that date.

Right now I’ll work on two stories from my Star Wars Marathon, the New Jedi Order book, and the graphic novel The Rise of Sith.

Off to read.


(Y-12) Days filled with reading

This winter break has been an amazing one.

I have passed the 3,500 pages mark, and with 5 days to go, I know the 7,130 goal will not be, but I will be close to 5,000 pages, and it will be my best month recorded since I started keeping my records.

Right now the Star Wars marathon is still in effect, just finished the third book of The New Jedi Order, a series compiled of 19 books, and I will start the fourth book, Agents of Chaos I-Hero’s Trial, and the return of captain Solo, this after tragedy struck on the first book.

Also, I am reading the adventures of an Imperial operative during the rebellion era.

And just finished Darth Vader and the Ghost Prison, in which the Dark Lord of the Sith investigates a plot to eliminate Emperor Palpatine, and has to go looking for the legendary Ghost Prison, a facility for extremely dangerous criminals that the Jedi Order secretly created.

This month has been really productive, and if my estimation is accurate, I should pass my worst year of reading, which was a little over 8,000 pages, really soon.

For now, I am off to read.


(Y-12) Level up and achievement unlocked

I have reached Level 21 on the Bookly app, that means 190 hours of reading using the app.

The next level is on the other side of 20 hours if reading, let’s see if I can achieve it before the year’s end.

Also, I unlocked another achievement on the app, read 100 books.

I am about an hour away from finishing the third book of the magnificent series The New Jedi Order, in Dark Tide-Ruin, the Yuuzhan Vong keep on advancing with their plans if galactic conquest, and the fragile New Republic is not quite ready for the incursion of such a perilous foe.

Will the Jedi rise up to the occasion once again?

Will see, for I still have 18 books ahead of me.

For now, I am off to read, happy holidays.


(Y-12) Up for the challenge

My insomnia has kicked in, and as always, I will take advantage of it.

With exactly one week to go on this amazing 2019, I have to put the pedal to the metal and try to reach my self appointed crazy challenge for this December.

I never shy away from a challenge.

To keep things rolling, I’ll continue reading some more stories from a galaxy far, far away.

To begin this early morning, I’ll dive into the fourth volume of the amazing Star Wars series Doctor Aphra.

Let’s chase those pages.

I am off to read.


(Y-12) In the middle of things

I have just passed the middle of this last month of reading in this spectacular 2019.

I will make a full report of my total pages read on this my twelve year of reach, which has surpassed the 6,000-page mark, tomorrow morning.

For what concerns this month of reading, I have just passed the 2000-page mark, of the whopping 7,000 goal.

These days have been a bit hectic, but with my kids just about to go on winter break, I foresee some very productive days ahead of me.

The other exciting thing coming up is the premiere of Star Wars Episode IX, which I am going to see on Friday night, in the meantime, I will still be knee-deep in all Star Wars stuff I can get my hands on.

As you can see in the pictures below, I have read quite a few stories, I highly recommend the series Doctor Aphra and the Tie-In story, The Screaming Citadel.

Also, I plan to get thru the whole movie saga by Friday, currently, I am on Episode VI.

To finish off the day, I’ll keep on reading the third book of the amazing series The New Jedi Order, Dark Tyde-Ruin.

Off to read.

I am sure that next week will be over 1,000 pages.

For now, I am off to read.
