Infinite Summer

I must admit I had been keeping up with the schedule quite well until I hit the day with the 18 page, closely-typed, footnote with footnotes. That just put me so far behind that I’d have to be reading a couple of hours a day just to keep up. And to be honest I just wasn’t enjoying it at all. I couldn’t make much sense of the plot even with page 223 bookmarked. There were some amusing sections but not amusing enough to be memorable.

Of course it doesn’t help that I have over 38 books that I’ve bought and still need to read and 3 unread magazines that are under the coffee table.

Infinite Jest is going to sit on the shelf next to Ulysses by James Joyce, the other 2 inch book I haven’t read.
