Once you've finished it, it also works well as a doorstop :)
RE Pynchon, I never made it through Gravity's Rainbow, but I might revisit, being older and more patient now.
Foucault's (sp?) Pendulum is another novel that seems to go on and on with not much happening and the point unclear. I gave up about 3/4 of the way through. Should I persevere?
Try Infinite Summer, a website for people all over the world undertaking Infinite est over the summer. Its a cool community of IJ readers: http://infinitesummer.org/
Started with infinitesummer and just dedicated a few weekends to reading and finished it in just over a month.
