I'm in. Already read The Savage Detectives to get a feel for his writing and to gear up for this larger work.

The Savage Detectives was great, very enjoyable and interesting.

Stoked on 2666, going to be reading it in January regardless of whether or not the infsum folks do.

Indeed -- wouldn't it be nice if we knew for certain that it was happening? I think it's pretty obvious by now that the novel that was to be read between Dracula and 2666 at some point "TBD" is not happening. No doubt people would have appreciated an update from the IS crew letting us know. I fear that people have been turned off of the project because of the lack of information.

There is some discussion of this on the Bolano google group. One post says:

"Just checked the infinitesummer.org organizer's twitter account and found
the following update 13 days ago (in response to another tweet that I didn't
dig up) [posted on 12/16 so "13 days ago" was 12/3]:
"Yes, 2666. Maybe. No, for sure: Jan/Feb of 2010. Probably. Like, 85%
chance."



I don't see this on the Infinite Summer twitter, but this refers to the organizer's twitter.

I don't know if it will get anywhere but I just sent an email to the info@infinitesummer address to see if we can get any information. I'm ready to read it and was looking forward to it and blogging about it at Infinite Zombies. I'd be ok with going ahead with it even if the structure of Infinite Summer doesn't go for it, but I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for the big group experience!

January 16th is the proposed date to start reading 2666. Check out the details on the Bolano Google Group.

This isn't meant to be a splinter from the IS group. If IS comes back and reads 2666 we'll jump back over here and join back in.
