Summer of Jest Postscript

Marco V Morelli's group read of Infinite Jest, Summer of Jest (inspired by 2009's Infinite Summer) has come to an end. Of sorts. In my experience just a single read is not the end of one's engagement with this wonderful novel.

For those of you that participated (or like me- lurked... I've made it pretty clear that I love keeping an eye on the reactions and experiences new readers have in response to Infinite Jest).

With general life and a growing family taking more and more of my time, it's amazing to watch readers like Marco coordinate reading schedules and summaries, a Facebook group, twitter updates, guest posts, call in 'support groups' and 'infinite conversations' (in hindsight, my participation in one of them was an absolute highlight even though at the time I was terribly nervous) and much more to support participating readers.

Now that most have finished it's well worth your time to check out the Summer of Jest front page and read through the post-IJ reflections.
