You can get all 4 volumes for free, the Grundrisse and more here:

Kindle and epub versions.

Though this is probably a subject for another thread.

I know that, I am just informing that there are several choices and sources where we can get the works of Marx and Engels. I have all of them in book format  in three different  languages, and I have them on a portable hardrive, and DVD. The German edition is going to consist of more than 137 volumes. When I was young it was prohibited to read the works of M&E, and anybody found with any book would have been taken to jail or killed, we used to read them inside of a Playboy magazine, or a comic book, and now they are all over the internet

Just noticed some ambiguity with this. Are the dates for when we are supposed to start reading the chapters or when we are supposed to start commenting on them?

Either way I've read the introduction and chapters 1 to 3. Will be writing some brief notes over the next few days.

How do people want to take it?

Yes.

Please go ahead without me chipping in early.

[I have a separate deadline that I must attend to before I can continue reading.]
