2666 Spring

We here at Infomavens’ Desktop are participating in 2666 Spring. We’ll be reading Roberto Bolaño’s 2666 according to the schedule set by Matt Bucher over at Las obras de Roberto Bolaño, included below.

Here we’ll collect links to all our posts related to 2666 Spring, as well as links to related sites elsewhere on the web.

Also, Dataduchess is one of the Trackers for the group read: she is responsible for collecting tough vocabulary words and compiling a glossary each week. View it here or over at the Group Read page.

The Infinite Summer-like reading program is continuing with Moby-Dick at the Infinite Zombies site starting in just under two weeks. Be there or be square.😉
