Inspired by this post
from yesterday and this post
from last year, I'd like to do a "Summer of the Wake": reading Finnegans Wake
from June to mid-August.

Wait, hear me out! It would be about 9 pages a day for 10 weeks, or 60 pages a week. Totally doable, if you're so inclined.
This essay from Michael Chabon
will either whet your appetite or send you running. Despite the reputation, the Wake can be fun as hell if you allow it to be. It'd make a great group reading experience. Jameson is optional, but bring enough for everyone.
So who's in for tackling this "famously unread" novel? And what would work best for a discussion forum: Google Groups, GoodReads, something else? GoodReads seems cozy.
