It has been a week since my last update, I promise to write more often, but it was a week to run errands and stockpile our pantry, and it was crazy busy.
So I’ll just jump right into it.
I have 4,101 pages to reach 40,000, and 29 days to do so, that’s 141 pages per day, I like those odds.
This past week I have read some amazing things.
I continued with Brian Wood’s Vertigo comics series Northlanders, and currently reading the fourth volume, The Plague Widow, and still have another 2 volumes left available on my Kindle Unlimited subscription.
Also, I finished another story arc of Batman written by the amazing Tom King, The Tyrant Wing, What is Bane up to?
But the highlight of the week was the tenth volume of my favorite comic book, Hellboy, which includes a story with the legendary art of Richard Corben, The Crooked Man, exploring some American folklore for the first time in the series.
Today I plan to read the seventh volume of the current run of Detective Comics, Batmen Eternal, written by James Tynion IV, which has become really quickly one of my favorite authors writing on the DC universe.
On the book front, I expect to finish soon with The Adversary, currently on page 436, an start with the next chapter of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, The Bonehunters.
Now concerning my numbers for this year.
I have a total of 35, 339 pages of 41,665 that was my proposed goal for the year, and with 103 days left, I am more that confident that I’ll hit that mark, and according to my projections, and if my current pace holds up, I will finish with around 49,719 pages, more that 2,000 pages more than my best year.
I also made some progress with my date to reach 1,000,000 pages, right now my projected date is December 15 of 2045, which is 5,307 days more than my original plan, but it came down from 5,321 days that I calculated about ten days ago.
That would mean that I would be 64 years 6 months, and 10 days old when I reach my goal, it stills needs work but I have gained ground steadily over the last few months.
With that in mind, I am off to read, because I am not getting any younger.
