It been quite sometime since I posted any updates from my reading journey, hectic is the word for the closing months of this year.
In the spirit of the upcoming holiday season, and the 10,000 plus pages that I have fallen behind on my reading, the natural decision to have an intense reading marathon is not only a great way to spent this lazy cold days but also a necessity to start the second half of my year of reading closer to my goal.
Thus, on December 23, starts my “8 days of readmass” marathon. But in order to read what I have in mind, which includes 3 books of The Witcher series, a great chunk of IDW’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collections, and some Mangas that I have being putting off, I must first finish the two current books that are in my “currently reading” pile.
With both over 1,000 pages each, in order to have my proper marathon, I must have a warm-up run. The task for the upcoming days, with the help of the Readmore app, is to hit the daily total to finish by the start of the main event.
The two books in question are the Second Omnibus of Gotrek and Felix adventures, set the the vast Warhammer Fantasy Universe, which will only get bigger with Henry Cavill’s plan to develop with Amazon Studios a bunch of series and movies. The other book us the classic Border Trilogy by genius author Cormac McCarthy, set in the borderland of Texas and México, with the raw beauty of the desert landscape perfectly captured by enthralling writing of Mr. McCarthy.
So, the task for today goes like this
157 pages for Gotrek and Felix, and 129 pages for The Border Trilogy. I have already read a few pages, but not quite up to the needed task.
Let’s see how the day progress.
Off to read
