Infinite Summer Challenge

I do so love a good arbitrary deadline. Some of the folks from The Morning News propose reading poor, dead David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest this summer. Four writers who’ve never read it are guides, with other guest experts joining them along the way. They start 6/21 at summer solstice, and ends 9/22 at the autumn equinox. It works out to about 75 pages a week. Totally do-able, no?

Speaking of chunky classics, David Copperfield is the selection for the next book club (real and virtual) at Semicolon. Sherry does the online book world a great service every week by hosting a Saturday Review of Books, where readers can share links to what they’ve written, and find other blogs by other readers.

    Are you doing the I.S.? I am. Safety in numbers, I figure. Plus, I need blog material. Clearly.
