And the book is: Going to be told to you when I take a picture of it.
Maybe I lied.
I (i) Wade through the introduction. (ii) Complain about the introduction. (iii) Realize the introduction taught you exactly what you needed to understand the Manifesto. (iv) Nationalize industry. II (i) Read the Manifesto. (ii) Break your chains. (iii) Sleep. (iv) Overthrow the bourgeoisie. (v) Move on to the next book. READERS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!
My chains have been lost!
Finished! I’ll post the week’s summary in the morning afternoon. It’s 6:41 AM here.
How goes the struggle?
The introduction is 190 pages long. It provides historical context to the Manifesto, so I am going to read it. If I start to leak time near the weekend, I’ll ditch the intro and only read the main text with a clear conscience. The sole danger is that the intro will be so boring that I will forget about the book until Saturday. 60(/190)/258.
And now: what you've all been waiting for!
This week’s book:

Our week starts on Sunday. I’m late. I know. It was very cold and very intoxicating. And very Hemingway. I encourage you to play along, at home.
