I decided it was time to read Infinite Jest. If thousands of so-and-sos could read it, then I certainly could. I scoff at so-and-sos. But I didn’t realize how heavy the thousand and then some page tome would be. I can barely hold it up, let alone take it with me on the subway to work. It’s even too heavy to read in the bath tub. I decided read a few pages to see if it was really worth all the fuss and didn’t pick my head up until page 75. Okay, I’m sold—and only nine hundred and something pages to go.
