Not sure if this is within the purview of the whole Internet-based reading group thing, but I was curious if there were any plans to have "IRL" chats about the book? (via, say meetup.com or some such)

I'd be interested in IRL chats if someone set it up.

Sure, I'll organize a meet-up in New York. Greenwich Village, to be precise. I have a friend who's planning to read the book as well, so there'll be at least two of us, and anyone else can join if they like. Here's the time and place:

Dates: Weekly on Thursdays starting July 2nd (I'm out of town the last week of June)
Time: 6pm
Place: The Four-Faced Liar, 165 W 4th St

I started a twitter account for it, too, to make announcements: http://twitter.com/infsumnyc

Can't wait. I have already read IJ, but it was years ago. I think I'll probably get more out of it now.

I posted about setting one up in Chicago in the Meetups topic header. Yee-haw.

I'm sort of in the boonies but I will be doing a lot of business travel this summer so I will look into any local meetups. I'll be coming to NYC, Chicago, Minneapolis, and LA for sure.

I'd be glad to set something up in the Boston area. I'd love to visit the locations (fictional and actual) in the Boston/Cambridge/Allston area and take some photos so everyone else can have the "local IJ" feel.

Boston area anyone?

Also south of Boston. I actually went to nursing school many moons ago at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, right down the hill from the fictional E.T.A.
