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 […]

Marx Revisited

Good Sunday Afternoon!  What a week for reading, or lack thereof!  Early last week, I mentioned that I’ve resumed my “Marx Reading Challenge.”  As I also mentioned, it is the final book of the challenge with me reading Capital Volume III.  Throughout the course of last week, I managed to get through around 150 pages […]

My Thoughts On Broke

My Thoughts On Capital Volume II

Phew!  Finally is the first word that comes to mind as I begin writing this post.  I can’t believe that I finally completed the second volume of Karl Marx’s Capital.  From the get go, I must say, Capital Volume II must be one of the most difficult books I’ve ever read, and that’s including some […]

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 […]
