Tadoku Log: Day 1

leave a comment »

41.03 pages, about a quarter of those coming from Berserk, and the rest from Umineko. Almost read more than I did in one day than I did in the entire first Tadoku! I had made a tentative goal to read roughly 50 pages today, and although I fell a little short, I’m still very pleased with my progress. Helps that I have some real reading material that I seriously want to plow through; nothing against the RPGs I was playing last time. Definitely sticking with Umineko as much as possible, despite its often soul-crushingly-difficult vocabulary – it’s just too damn enjoyable when I’m really into it. On the manga side, Berserk never fails me, and the current arc is getting seriously awesome, so I’ll definitely be sticking with that too.

As for material on my nook, I’ve yet to read much for Tadoku yet. Was recently introduced to Kino no Tabi, which not only sounds super appealing to my tastes personally, but also a great introduction to light novels. Between that, Slayers and Harry Potter, I’m sure I’ll fall into an ereader groove eventually.

Really exciting seeing all the activity over the past 24 hours – I never imagined it would be this competitive. I’ve been challenging myself to stay in the top 20, and that’s been quite a task. Keeps me on my toes (and my eyes on the pages), at the very least!

Thinking in the long term, if I’m able to average 50 pages a day, I’ll end up with around 1500 pages total by the end – an amount that anyone who’s paced themselves through RTK knows is entirely doable. I’m in this marathon to the end.
