And So It Begins

Infinite Jest Infinite Summer, here I come, fueled by a blueberry toaster pastry and a double cappuccino.

    75 pages a week doesn’t seem too bad. I’ve lately been finding that if I can break my big reads down into smaller reads (I’ve currently given myself the goal of one section of BolaƱo’s 2666 per month) then I find them less daunting. I hope you post status updates letting us know how it’s going!

    Via con dios. Should I e-mail you the pic with the bookmark halfway through where I stalled 10 years ago? At least I’ve moved to new houses three times with the book, so that means I’ll pick it up again, right?

    My husband started it on a vacation to the North Shore we took in the summer of ‘00, gave up, then read it again last summer. Only eight years, compared to your ten, but why not join the challenge, and have another go? All the cool kids are doing it…

    The tricky thing is that they’ve allotted pages based only on the books, figuring the end notes will average out. But I just finished a very dense 9 page end note, so this may be more of a fill time gig than I thought it would be.

    @Amy, have you read it? If not, why not join me?
