> The Things You Can Read: January Reading Goal: Infinite Jest

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

January Reading Goal: Infinite Jest

Infinite Jest
For the start of the year, we are joining forces with Goodreads to accomplish reading Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace.  This has been on our TBR list for awhile.  We started it this past summer, but were not successful.  Hoping that the second attempt will yield better results, we are ready to try again.  If anyone is interested in joining the group, click on over to Goodreads and check it out.  Let us know if you plan to participate, or if you have already read this one, tell us what you thought!

Reading Schedule:
Dec 30-Jan 5: pages 3-95
Jan 6-12: pges 95-198
Jan 13-19: pgs 198-299
Jan 20-26: pgs 299-379
