Infinite Jest Reader Chops Out Page Numbers

As you can see by the photograph embedded above, one reader surgically removed all the page numbers while reading David Foster Wallace‘s imposing Infinite Jest.

“Today I broke through the chains of oppression. No longer will page numbers tyrannize my life. I… have taken action,” they explained. Readers had mixed reactions to this unusual way to finish a book–are you horrified or impressed? One reader wrote:

“I saw this and almost had a panic attack. Why are page numbers so bad? What did your book ever do to deserve this treatment?!”
