Quarter-Pole Review of My Year In Reading

As we reach the end of March, I’m now beginning to notice just how quickly this first three months of the year has just flown by!  The days seem to go by faster each and every year, or maybe that’s just me.  With March coming to an end, I thought I would go ahead and […]

My More Difficult Reads – To Date

The other day, with my post on The Brothers Karamazov being a difficult but satisfying read, it got me to thinking about some of the more difficult books I’ve read over the course of the last couple of years.  So this wonderful Sunday morning, I thought I’d go ahead and discuss further some of my […]

A Look Back At Beltwayliterature’s January 2011

Coming Soon – Resumption of ‘Marx’ Reading Challenge

It’s another happy Sunday!  What an interesting last few days it’s been.  Between the snow, ice, and cold, a lot of other things have been going on aside from reading.  I’m still reading President Obama’s The Audacity of Hope, but I can’t help but look forward a bit today. Coming up next, I will resume/continue […]

My Thoughts On Grundrisse

This evening I completed the first book from my Marx reading challenge, Grundrisse.  I began this book the week of Christmas, and given the length, I’m pretty pleased with the time it took me to complete it.  As I have mentioned in my previous posts about the book, I found the book to be very […]

Notebook VII also includes the […]

Weekend Reading & Week In Review

This weekend I’m very pleased that I’ve managed to get through almost the nearly 100 pages goal of Grundrisse that I was looking to get accomplished.  I’m feeling significantly more confident about how the book is reading and my overall comprehension of the text.  I’m also fairly excited about the prospects of tackling Capital. This […]

A Long Weekend, Extra Time For Reading!

With this weekend being a long weekend due to the MLK Holiday, I figured, after some of my other chores were complete, that I would definitely get some extra reading in this weekend.  After this evening, that is looking more and more like the case. With the extra day off, I’m hoping to be able […]

Evening Off, But Back To Reading & Other Thoughts

Last night, after I completed posting, I sat down on the couch to read, to come to find out that I just wanted a break from reading.  That might sound silly, but it was true.  In this case, with Grundrisse, it was probably wise to take said break just to clear my thoughts for an […]
