Years ago, when it first came out, I bought Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, and then never got around to reading it. Thanks to this site, I now have a goal to accomplish this summer.
It’s not YA lit, but is anyone else going to join?

Mel is brow-beating me to join. And the book *is* on my Fill-in-the-Gaps list…I just might do it. I don’t know. Undecided still.
I tried to read it back in the summer of ’99. Didn’t get through it. The foot/endnotes were what bogged me down.
DFW was my college Lit professor and I really ought to give it another go.
I’m deep in a John Irving right now. Maybe if I slam through that…
I guess I could try in another 10 years if I don’t get through it again.
Jen and Jenn, I think you should both read it!
what, and you aren’t going to join?
I totally am! I just don’t think I should do it by myself.
