Jen Von Ghoul This is going to be such a big help! Thank you so much for taking time and putting this together


Lisa (noporunner68) Thank you! I did the 2009 read and am so looking forward to diving into IJ again. Plus my husband is going to join us all, and he's never finished it. :)

I too read this during the Infinite Summer group a few years ago. Looking forward to digging even deeper this time around. I even bought the Kindle version to help with footnotes. :)

Dallas (damedallas) | 3 comments Read the first 13 pages. So excited to delve into this and get my hands dirty, so to speak!


Jenny (Reading Envy) (readingenvy) | 8 comments I'm staying a bit (but not too much) ahead because I know there will be days where I can't face 15 pages. Well, that's what I was telling myself, but honestly it is going down more easily than my first attempt.

I'm thinking I'm gonna be 2 milestones behind for the rest of the reading, maybe until the end. =/

I'm on an ebook too and was getting frustrated by the page numbers not corresponding with the physical edition, but then I found this table of scene synopses. Very helpful.

Dallas (damedallas) | 3 comments That is a great help, Karen! Thank you so much for posting that. I have been worrying throughout all of the reading about whether or not I was on the same track as the above schedule or not.
That link is definitely helpful!

Dennis  Frank (frame438) I dunno if this helps but I did an approx. translate to Marco's schedule for the Nook ebook based on 1500+ ebook pages of IJ (with endnotes,
maybe 1370ish for the book)
