How long did it take you to read the meme trilogy?
For me it was:
IJ - 2 weeks
Gravity's Rainbow - 1 month
Ulysses - 1 month
>>
IJ - 2 weeks
Gravity's Rainbow - 4 months
Ulysses - 2 months

this is however unfair because I read Infinite Jest whilst unemployed and living at home so I had really nothing getting in the way of reading whereas Ulysses and GR were read at busier points of my life
>>
Ulysses - 4 months
Infinite Jest - 3 months
Gravity's Rainbow - 2 months

I learned how to read faster as I went down the line.

I read Gravity's Rainbow in about a month (it was for an independent reading assignment junior year of high school). I've only read about 300 pages of Infinite Jest which took me one morning when I was hungover and needed something to take my mind off things. I've never tried to read Ulysses.

2 weeks huh? Did you read it during every free moment you had? Give details.
>>
>>7565990
Basically, I was on break with nothing to do. So I would wake up, have some eggs and toast (with a little jam and butter of course) while reading, read, take a shit while reading, go for a run, read, eat, piss, read, eat, shit, read, sleep. It was a good two weeks.

IJ: 3-1/2 months during a busy school term

GR: 6 weeks with a busy work schedule

Ulysses: 10 days on break.

considering quitting my job and entering the NEET lifestyle just so that I can do this shit.

No not really. I didn't make a chore out of it or push myself to read or anything. I just liked the book, had a comfy hammock and lots of time to spare.

If one had to (why would they?) it could be speedread much faster. It's a pretty breezy book for all its reputed difficulty
>>
IJ - 2-3 months during the summer
Gravity's Rainbow - a month or two during the school year, making myself read 20 pages a day until I was lugging it to every class and unable to put it down
Ulysses - a few weeks for a class. by far the hardest to read though I did it the quickest
>>
IJ - 40 days more or less

Reading GR now. In my defence, I'm not a native speaker
>>
Infinite Jest - two weeks
Gravity's Rainbow - three weeks
Ulysses - haven't read it yet. I'm anticipating that it will be drier than the other two
>>
None of the books are particularly long.
>>
Where can I find the Infinite Jest pdf?
>>
>>7565713
I haven't read those three yet.
>>
i read infinite jest in 3 days when i was dopesick
