I'm at page four hundred something of Infinite Jest, and I'm at that stage where I'm not really analyzing what I'm reading, I'm just hungry for more story.  I especially want to hear more about the world of Bostonian AA, a world that Wallace depicts amazingly well.

This book is also really improving my vocabulary. 

Words I Would Never Have Learned If I Had Not Read Infinite Jest*
 

erumpent -- bursting through, as if through a surface

formicate -- a spontaneous abnormal sensation of ants running over skin

thigmotacic -- the response of an organism to direct tactile stimulus

deliquesce -- to melt or dissapear by melting
