Marx Reading Challenge Completed!

It’s definitely been an interesting two weeks!  For the most part, I’ve been off the computer, due to home improvement projects and doing a bit of reading and family stuff.  It’s been relaxing to have been offline for a bit, but now I’m back, and hope to be blogging more frequently. As I mentioned two […]

August Month In Review

As Summer is coming to an end, I hope my reading slump does as well.  I was hoping to get much more read with Karl Marx’s third volume of Capital, but other things have distracted me between family and other activities. This week, I’ve managed to read around 200 pages of Capital, which is considerable […]

While On The Running Trail….

This morning, I continued my training for the Army Ten-Miler by completing a 5 mile run this morning at a trail that circles Burke Lake Park.  The heat got to me this morning as I was running, but that’s not what this post is about.  While I was running the trail, earlier this morning, I […]

Marx Revisited

Pushing Through Reading Obstacles

This evening I find myself through, what seems to be the longest chapter of my Marx Reading Challenge ever, Chapter 15:  Effect of Circulation Time on the Magnitude of the Capital Advanced. I say this chapter felt like the longest, even though it was just short of being 40 pages long.  This particular chapter just […]

Capital Volume II – A Difficult Part

Have you ever reached a point in a book where you feel it’s so difficult that you feel like hitting your head against the wall?  That’s exactly how I’m feeling at this juncture in my reading of Karl Marx’s Capital Volume II.  I’m currently on Chapter 15 Effect of Circulation Time on the Magnitude of […]

Time For Some Catching Up

With the Caps losing game three this evening down in Tampa, I have officially come to the realization that my favorite hockey club’s season is more than likely over.  With that being said, I will now have much more time to devote to my reading and to writing more posts on the blog, which have […]

The Month Ahead

What a rather interesting April it was!  I feel like I didn’t get a heck of a lot accomplished, either with reading or posting on the blog.  It was quite a hectic April, all things being considered, more so than I expected.  This month, it is my hope to get back on track with daily […]
