Link Roundup

There are still some brave souls out there trekking through the Sonoran desert with us.

First and foremost, Infinite Zombies is absolutely packed with insight and analysis. If you care at all about 2666, it is required reading. http://infinitezombies.wordpress.com/

Frequent Zombies contributor Steve Brassawe also has his own blog of 2666 commentary: A Solipsist’s 2666

Christine over at Naptime Writing has strong opinions about Bolaño’s project—and she finds some of the most intriguing quotes in the novel.

There is some excellent discussion of the novel underway over at Alone With Each Other:

We still have some discussion going on over in the forums as well:

If you are following along, leave a comment and let us know! Ready to quit yet? Loving it? Hating it, but reading anyway? And leave a link if you are posting your thoughts elsewhere.

Hat tip to our own Nicole at bibliographing (one of the best lit blogs out there, btw) for the roundup idea this week.

Forums

The Group Read forums are now up and running. Feel free to get an early start over the weekend on discussing the first 51 pages—or anything else you’d like to talk about. However, forums for later sections of the novel will be locked until we reach that point in the schedule. Remember, no spoilers!

Let me know if you have any technical difficulties: matt@bolanobolano.com

UPDATE: To be more clear: don’t discuss anything past page 51.
