Ok, lovely people I thought I'd share with you a project that several of my friends and I are doing this summer.
This summer we are reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. I found a website detailing all things IS (Infinite Summer @infinitesummer) and we'll be using that to get ideas and such.
Oh, my gosh Stephanie this sounds so exciting I want to join in on the fun!!!
I want you to join too and joining is simple, just reply to this post (indicate that you want to join and tell me what book you want to win--see below for details) so I know that you want to and then come back to my bloggity blog every Sunday to comment and exchange ideas. I'll post a link to every Sunday post below that way all you'll have to do is bookmark this one post to come back to again and again. You'll be able to find all the Infinite Summer Sundays.

What's in it for me?
If you complete the whole entire book with me and comment on every Sunday, I'll put your name in a drawing and you'll have the opportunity to win [Score!]:
The winner will be chosen using a random number generator (using your message number from the thread) and will be announced in the beginning of November.
What if I get behind?
No worries I won't close the contest until the last Sunday in October. This will give you plenty of time to catch up and comment on every IS post!!!
I really want to play, but don't have a Gmail or Google account
That's OK, just comment using whatever social media you want to (LiveJournal, Wordpress, Typepad, AIM, OpenID) according to Blogger. Just make sure I have your name so I can enter you in the drawing!!!
Find us on Twitter
We'll be discussing the first 78 pages on Sunday the 24th of June. Hopefully, this gives you plenty of time to buy/steal/borrow the book and get to reading!!!
Here's our reading schedule, feel free to print it out and hang it on your fridge:
