Final numbers of “Seven of reading “

What an amazing week of reading.

I was on a reading slump , this week was a much needed jolt of energy to move forward with the rest of this year.

Concerning the 21 tasks that comprised the week , I am glad to inform that 20 were completed, leaving only read 6 hours in one day, it was part of the last day , and honestly I only completed half of it.

The greatest thing was to finish the seventh book of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Reaper’s Gale, I have been working on it for a while as the threat of The Crippled God gets closer to blow everything away.

The other task from the last day was to start a new book, I did not only that but also started a new series from critically acclaimed author Robin Hobb.

But the most important thing was the sheer amount of total pages, 2,577, this over 1 book, 4 comic books, and 13 graphic novels.

I’ll try keep this pace up to close this bizarre year with a bang.

For now, I am off to read.

Yesterday was probably the most successful day of the whole week.

I completed the three tasks of the day, and to top it off the whole left from friday, read 200 pages from one book, which I believed to be one of the hardest to achieve, alongside read for 6 hours, which is part of today’s challenge.

So, 18 out of 18 ,and one more day to go.

Now let’s talk about yesterday’s challenge, for the two printed graphic novels I choose from a fairly new ground to me, Manga, right now I am trying to complete Kentaro Miura’s Berserk, the Spanish language edition, which are about 30 numbers, and I have 8 of them.

I read numbers 2 and 3, in which Guts, the knight with the gargantuan sword, fights forces from another plain, and some of his mysterious pass unravels, so far I am loving it, but fair warning, it’s not for the faint of heart.

Thanks this two great volumes, and a whole lot of reading from Reaper’s Gale, I could complete the other two tasks, read for 4 hours ,and read 500 total pages.

For today the wheel has in store the three remaining tasks.

  1. Read for 6 hours
  2. Finish the current book (about 42 pages left)
