New Goodreads profile

I decided to start using, again, Goodreads to keep track of my reading.

I’ll start with what I have read this year so far, and onward up until I reach the coveted goal of 1,000,000 pages

You can find my new profile on the link below

Off to read.


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) Major Goodreads update

I opened my Goodreads page, and it has become an inhospitable wasteland.

So, I am going to take this day to put it up to date.

I am really curious how close am I to reaching my reading challenge set in January of 100 books.

I’ll find out really soon.


(Y-11) Happy New Year

I hope your new year’s celebration was a blast and you are as psyched for the year to come.

I spent mine in bed, doing some binge watching with my wife, we decided to start watching Supernatural from the first season up to the thirteen, which the last available to stream on Prime Video.

But I also, in between breaks, I spend it reading.

An I am glad to inform you that it was my best day of all of the 31 from this, vacation period.

The total was 434 pages, this is thanks to that I finished the third volumes of Harbinger and Bloodshot, an all-out war of the psiops.

Also, I read three comic books by extraordinary writer and illustrator Becky Cloonan, these three stories are from her creator-owned series Ink and Thunder, whichever you choose they are fantastic, or better yet, read all three.

Also, I made a bit of headway with Deadhouse Gates, 19 pages, and currently on page 159, also I will be using a new app to track my reading, it is called Bookly, and my intention is to generate an infographic report of each book I read, which is one of the main things that attracted me to the app.

Let’s see how it plays out.

And with all of this reading, my total crossed the 9,000 page-mark.

9,300 to be precise, which gives me a lot of satisfaction, because at the beginning of December I set out to reach 8,000 pages and came out at the other end with much more.

In going thru my number for December, I came up with a total of 6,325 pages read that month, and all of the days above my minimum daily average, I just can see by the graphic below.

December numbers

Yes, I made a graphic, don’t judge me.

A very productive month I must say, I know that this is an atypical month, being almost all without school, at least in my case, but if I could only replicate a couple of time a year, I will be in great shape.

Concerning my reading schedule, and again thanks to this reading spurt, I am now only 17 days behind from the original calculations, and hopefully, by the end of January, this will be reduced dramatically.

Now I want to talk about how my last year of reading, 2018 of course, because as I have explained on other posts, the year of reading for my projects begins and ends in October.

Anyway, I’ll start with stats from Goodreads.

I won’t spoil any of the fun so you can check it out this pretty cool infographic. Here you can see my year of reading on Goodreads.

Just one thing, I did complete my goal of reading 100 books.

And for next year, I’ll keep the number at 100 and hopefully surpass it with flying colors, as I did this year.


On WordPress, my blog did fantastic, its best year to date.

I wrote 175 posts, which amount to 29,299 words, a whopping 20,000 more words than 2017, I have been doing my work and enjoying every single second of it.

The site received 70% more hits than 2017, which had a total of 626, compared to 1,062 from this year.

That I know, it could be small numbers to some, but for me, they are glorious.

stats 2018

The top three countries I received visits from were: The United States, Mexico (my country) and The United Kingdom, also, some happy surprises of countries that I have reached, like India or Finland, thanks to all for reading.

So those are basically my stats for last year of blogging, in 2019 I hope to double down on my writing, and hopefully, this would reach more of persons in my effort to share this experience, for which I am truly grateful that so many take the time to read it.

Now for the near future of Lost in a Million Pages, let me tell you that I have big plans.

First of all, and in the context of the 24in48 readathon I will be participating at the end of January, I decided to start hosting little events with the idea to promote the literary and coffee culture that is becoming quite strong in my city, Ciudad Juarez, that is in Mexico.

I’ll start small, hosting a reading party for one of the sessions of the 24in48 readathon, this of course in one of my favorite local coffee house, more information coming soon.

The other thing is that probably by the end of March or the beginning of April I will reach 250,000 pages.

I am 7,673 pages from achieving it, and right now I am working with an artist friend to commemorate this joyous occasion, as with my events more information coming soon and a preview of the fantastic work he is doing.

So, I have a lot on my plate for this upcoming year.

But for now, I’ll kick back and enjoy so reading and gear up for what appears to be a busy and exciting year.

Happy Readings!!!



(Y-11) Another notch (day 13 of 31)

Yesterday was another great day of reading, my total was 156.

I finished the second volume of Spawn Origins series and jump right into another graphic Novel, Dungeons & Dragons: Shadowplague, which by the way I just ended about an hour ago.

This two great graphic novels just push me past the 5,000-page mark, only 2,000 more to go to reach my goal for this vacation period.


On the book front, I have been progressing slowly, right now I am on page 438 of 627, and my plan to finish my Saturday still stands, just need to push a little bit harder.

Now let’s do a quick recap of my numbers.

  • Total pages for (Y-11) : 5,044 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve first milestone (10,000 pages): 4,956 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve the main goal of the year (53,000 pages): 47,956 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the second-best year of reading (32,001 pages): 26,957 pages.
  • Pages to go to be the best year of reading (47,705 pages): 42,661 pages.

This kind of spurts in my reading just add fuel to the fire, it makes me think that come next October those 53,000 pages will be ancient history.

For now, I’ll squeeze every reading ounce to my Kindle Unlimited account, I just can see some Dungeons & Dragons Classic comics in the horizon.

In an earlier post from today, I shared the progress in my Goodreads Reading Challenge, which right now it sits on 119 books out of 100 proposed to finish in this year, I aim to reach 125 total books.

Happy Readings!!!



(Y-10) 6 days…one challenge completed

At the beginning of the year, I challenge myself, thru the reading challenge feature in Goodreads, to read 100 books.

Well, let me tell you that, CHALLENGE COMPLETED.

Challeng 2018 COMPLETED

I registered some books that were tallied in my personal files but not on my Goodreads profile, so with that, I have now officially read 101 books in 2018.

So, I have three more months to add to this already fantastic result, let us see how much more can I read.

And on that note, let’s see how my number are with less than a week to go in this the tenth year of reading.

  • Total pages for (Y-10) : 31,107 pages.
  • Pages to go to achieve the primary goal of this year (read more than the two last years combined): 2,627 pages.
  • And lastly, Pages to go to reach my ultimate milestone (best year ever of reading): 16,598 pages.

There is a very long shot to getting those 2,627 pages done, but as I said on the other posts, I aim to get as close to that number as humanly possible.

To start or finish the weekend, I’ll get into the second volume of The Legend of Zelda, The Oracle of Seasons.

The first volume was great fun, let’s see what kind of shenanigans young Link get into this time.


I’ll keep posting my progress thru this last few days, and hopefully, next Saturday, I’ll be toasting away this great year and welcoming the next one, that will probably proof really challenging, but I’ll get into that later.

Happy Readings!!!
