19. Going into second year of college in Ohio, picked it up in April, finished at the beginning of this month but never set it down, really.

38. Third time attempting to read IJ, but I'm pretty confident I'll make it through this time. The suggestion to just get through the first 200 pages was critical for me - I'm loving it. I've read most of DFW's other work, except a few essays here or there.

Just turned 21. I can't help but feel that this is the perfect time for me to be reading this book.

To all you experienced DFW readers out there, where do I go from here? I finished IJ today and I want to read everything DFW ever wrote. What do you recommend as the next step?

:lol: If you're planning to card me I'll get my ID, but I don't think I'll need to. But if you do, thanks for the compliment. I'm 83. ;)
