This blog is a bit of an experiment. I've been meeting for the better part of a year with a small group of friends who are attempting to read James Joyce's Finnegans Wake together a couple of times a month. We're just over the 100 page mark.
Tonight, a question came up. We wondered how many people in the world were actually reading Finnegans Wake right now. A few hundred? A million? We really don't know. Nor can we. However, if you are reading the Wake right now, we'd like to hear from you. Our numbers are a bit thin--I almost wrote "fin"--on the ground, so even virtual fellow readers will be appreciated.
