Analysis and Goals:

Yes, well, December has been a strong reading month. Yes, it’s true that I finished only three from the designated six titles, but I had a heavy act to balance with this comic book series and when it all came down to statistics it turns out I have been on a reading frenzy. Comic books might seems easy picks for reading, but believe me, you have to scan the page once to get the dialogue, then a second time to get the narration/internal monologue and a third time to get as much as detail as possible from the art. So I am not disappointed.

January will be even busier. I have eleven other series [thankfully only three are longer and will give me a run for my money] and then there are definitely two novels for a guest review and one for a freelance gig that has to be read and analyzed. Apart from that I have exams and really just hope to finish Gaiman’s “American Gods”. January will ruin my eyes and melt my brain, but I will fight through it.
