To infinity, and beyond

I'm reading David Foster Wallace's 'Infinite Jest' on the kindle at the moment; a work which, for all its manifest virtues, I am finding easier to admire than to like.

I discovered by accident that that the page numbers appear when you press the menu button when you're in a book.

I'm on page 397 of 981! I had no idea it was such a doorstop. I wonder if I would have entertained it as a physical book that weighed in with that amount of heft?

"I've started so I'll finish."
