Blogging at WebSlog, in between posting pics for my Photography I class. I'll be focusing more on the experience of reading rather than discussion of the novel itself. Join me, won't you?

See signature. It will mostly be random and abstract thoughts on the book; anything that I think is worthy of discussion I will be posting in the forums.

I've begun a weekly Sunday post on the previous week's readings up at Http://www.brokennerves.net , starting here: http://brokennerves.net/2009/06/28/41-i ... -week-one/

it'll probably be small and compact, but, I like to document things!

I've begun blogging at:

http://infinitetasks.wordpress.com/

I've got a post on authorship and autobiography as it relates to the Kate Gompert section, and I'll have another post up in a day or so, on Orin, the dead bird, and the concept of dread. I'm a philosophy professor by trade, hope that angle sheds a slightly different light that you find inviting.

I wrote on my slightly ambivalent feelings about reading in groups here: http://ofbooksandbikes.wordpress.com/2009/06/29/group-reading/

Right now I'm mostly Twittering about #infsum as quinnnorton, and really the #infsum hashtag has been an awesome rolling discussion of IJ for anyone not already following it, and doing the *occasional* blog post at quinnnorton.com/said which is likely to be really spoiler rich, because I'm on page 600 -something and not remembering what's in or out.
