Infinite Jest: The Beginning

Today I’m starting Infinite Jest.

About a month ago, Ashley posted a random tweet about reading this book. From there, it blossomed into a full on blogger book club. So, starting in June, we are reading Infinite Jest together. Here’s what I know about this book: It’s about 1000 pages long. It has a lot of footnotes. David Foster Wallace is dead. That’s about it.

I never read novels without knowing at least SOMETHING about the story. So I’m a bit nervous. But i’m jumping in. For those of you following along, and let me know who you are so I can track your progress as well, I found these little gems on google:
