So postmodern it hurts

I got the book today (House of Leaves, the Minotaur version) that so many people seem to be reading. For those of you not entirely in the know, House of Leaves is an experimental novel written by a semiotician. So far (i.e. 10 pages into it), it's amazing. Right now, I bet Knuth is still getting hard-ons from the extravagant typographical acrobatics.

It's paperback, though - couldn't get it in hardcover from Ruminator. Meh - don't have the money for hardcover, yet. Those of you that have read it - let me know if there are certain activities I shouldn't do before and/or after reading it. (e.g. operating heavy machinery, driving, trying to cook on a gas range, etc.)
