This sounds really cool, but how will you know when you've finished it?

Serious question, that sounds like an extremely enjoyable way to read a book, but is there any way to be sure you've read it all? or is not knowing part of the fun

you could mark the entries you've read with a pen or something, I don't think tracking a nonlinear progress is too hard with a book

I’ve been on a tear of making myself read contemporary Canadian fiction but it’s been so hit or miss I need something else for a while.

One of my favourite books is Life and Death are Wearing me Out by Mo Yan. I just think it’s a very fun and memorable multigenerational story. I’ve heard the comedic parts of it are comparable to Tristram Shandy but if anyone has a better rec than that I’d love to hear it.

Edit: I should mention I have read and love 100 years of solitude because that comes to mind when I think of it

Pachinko by Min Jin Lee is a multigenerational story that i read relatively recently and enjoyed
