Yesterday was a good of reading, my total was 199 pages, and I finished Assassin Apprentice.
Also, I started the reading challenge of Paraiso Perdido, read the last number of Grant Morrison’s Green Lantern Blackstars, and the latest volume of Detective Comics written by Peter J. Tomasi.
I still have 5,154 pages to go on January, and 26,071 pages to go on this year of reading.
For today’s reading, I’ll continue will the first book of Paraiso Perdido challenge, Cuando las luces aparezcan, and the latest volume of Cosmic Ghost Rider, imagine Frank Castle as the host of the Spirit of Vengeance, pure gold.
The last two, May the Force be with you readathon, and Seven Days of Reading summer edition, are self appointed.
So, from May 4, the official Star Wars, to May 25, the anniversary of Episode IV, I will read anything, and everything about one of my favorite universes.
I will focus on The Old Republic era, it’s not canon anymore but I have been meaning to read it.
The last one on this preliminary list is the readathon to close out my reading year, and to celebrate my birthday, and as the last one, it’s an intense week of daily challenges, it will take place from May 31 to June 6, my 40th birthday.
I will try a new thing this year, a monthly reading challenge, for this occasion I will take the challenge from my favorite Mexican independent publishing house , Paraiso Perdido.
As soon I finish with The Assassin Apprentice, I will start the first book, Cuando las luces aparezcan by Roberto Abad.
A pretty active year, and hopefully, more activities will surface
Just as a quick update, I still have 5,353 pages to go on January, and my plan for today is to finish Assassin Apprentice, currently on page 372, and read a couple of comic books.
Today starts the NFL playoffs, I have been following football for as long as I can remember, and watching the Superbowl for more than 30 years.
On my favorite things to do, it holds the fifth slot after reading, books, comics, and eating, right now I am watching my favorite team, Indianapolis Colts, face a really tough rival in the Buffalo Bills, let’s hope we survive this week.
In between snaps, I will be reading all that I can, I still have 5,672 pages to go on January.
To try to chip off some pages I’ll keep on reading Assassin Apprentice, currently on page 312, and I will start the new comic book series Star Wars- The High Republic, taking place in the golden age of the Republic, some 200 years before the events of Episode IV
It has been a couple of slow reading days, nothing to worry about, but I need to step it up.
My total for yesterday’s reading was 123 pages, still working on Assassin Apprentice, currently on page 242, and read a big chunk of Planet Hulk, the fight between Silver Savage and Green Scar is epic.
I still have 5,953 pages to read in January, and 26,870 pages for (Y-13), a gargantuan task but doable.
Fortunately in February the girls from 24in48 readathon are back, and as always it’s a great event to read my eyes off.
Check out their latest post to see how can you participate.
A long time ago, in Bloemfontein, South Africa, a remarkable writer was born that came and change the world of fantasy literature forever.
I place The Lord of the Rings in the top place of my favorite books, this is mostly because it was that one book that got me really into reading, but most importantly I read them during a really dark emotional period for me.
I don’t say this lightly, but it help me to keep afloat, and not to sick on a really dark chasm.
For that I am forever grateful.
So rise a glass in salute, and may the wonder of Middle-Earth never ends.
Yesterday was a day to tidy up, and to start this new year the best way possible.
I wanted to start this year of my precious blog by saluting all who are kind enough to accompany me on this journey, and to share some of the numbers from 2020.
Although I say some a slight decrease of traffic from the previous year, it still was an amazing response to each and every post.
I almost hit the 2,000 mark, but this year I planned to post more often and with some new material lined up, I am sure it will be another great year of blogging.
But the most satisfying is to see that each year I reach new countries, and I am more than grateful to share these journey with such a diverse audience.
Concerning my numbers for this year of reading, I can officially say that year thirteen will not be my worst, for I have surpassed the numbers of year 4, which I had a total of 8,730 pages, and I am currently looking at a total of 8,804 pages, this, with 155 days left on my year of reading, which I have stated in passed post is going to be a bit shorter, for I am adjusting my finishing date to coincide with my birthday.
There are still 29,180 pages left on my goal of reading for this year, so with that in mind.
