    Well, feel free to lurk, and contribute if you feel so inclined.

    Infinite Jest is infinitely out of the question. It's not a book, it's a tome, it's about 4 inches thick, and David Foster Wallace was my favorite writer and I couldn't even finish that book. Plus there's waaay too much in there to discuss. Seriously, you gotta be kidding with Infinite Jest.

    I'll play; I'll generally read anything as well. Will it be announced what book we have to read and by when?

    he is my favorite contemporary writer, as well. pure mental candy. and it is precisely because there is so much to discuss, that DFW is perfectly suited to a book club. three of us feel up to the challenge. join us, let us dive in and see what happens!

    we don't necessarily have to finish...just go on an amazing intellectual journey together.

    I would at least try to read any of them. My votes:

    Puzo, Mario: The Sicilian
    Berger, Thomas: Little Big Man
    Charriere, Henri: Papillon
    Muir, Jon: My First Summer in the Sierra
    Stephenson, Neal: Anathem
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Great, I'll add you to the list. If there's a certain book you want to vote for, go ahead and post, but yes, once voting is closed tomorrow, the book will be announced. I'd say we can shoot for having the first few chapters read by 2/1, but the whole book will be too much to do by then.... especially if it's one of the longer ones.

    To all - when voting, can you please underline and bold your vote(s), so I know for sure that you're voting, and not just making a comment? Thanks!

    Also, I just created a group for the book club. I invited everyone who's posted in this thread, and anyone else is welcome to join as well. I'm thinking it would be a good place to post the book we're currently reading, and maybe conduct the next nomination and voting cycle... this one is too chaotic for my Jness.

    Okaaaay ... over a thousand pages of the most dense reading you may ever do, with a word to look up on every other page even if you think you have an extensive vocabulary, plus footnotes ... I grant you, it's all riveting, but IMO it might be more suitable to choose a couple of vignettes than expect people to get through the whole book.

    It's really great to meet a DFW fan, though! (((Hugs)))
