The Infinite Winter Has Begun

So, if you haven't heard yet, there is a large online group reading of David Foster Wallace's epic masterpiece Infinite Jest going on. January 31 was the first day, and the reading schedule is roughly 75 pages per week. So far, I'm about 65 pages in ... and it's pretty amazing. The problem, of course, is that there is so much going on I just want to take a three-month sabbatical, go sit in a coffee shop with my book and my laptop, and read. The book is an infinite challenge and requires infinite patience and engagement, but the growing discussion forum on Reddit also offers infinite support and insight. So, check it out.

As soon as my very busy week eases, I'm hoping to blog some early thoughts.
