If you've been needing an excuse to re-read Infinite Jest, or you've been looking for an excuse to buy it and read it... (notice the $4.99 tag on the Kindle version? Not for Aussie readers, though. :/ )
The Wallace-l mailing list (run by friend and fellow Wallace enthusiast, @mattbucher) is running another read of Infinite Jest. Co-ordinated by Richard Stock, it started last week but it's not hard to catch up, and there's no harm subscribing to check it out - though I'd recommend a threaded email reader like gmail, to help you sort through the posts that usually come in a storm at the beginning of each section.
Keep in mind there aren't really spoiler tags - there's an expectation that most people have read the book before.
Discussion about each section is kicked off by a different host each week, here's the schedule for the next few weeks:
IJRR 1: 12 September, pp. 3-49, 46 pages.
IJRR 2: 19 September, pp. 49-87, 38 pages.
IJRR 3: 26 September, pp. 87-151, 64 pages.
IJRR 4: 3 October, pp. 151-219, 68 pages.
IJRR 5: 10 October, pp. 219-283, 64 pages.
IJRR 6: 17 October, pp. 283-3792, 96 pages.
