Sexy Old Karl

I’ve just signed up at DailyLit, a site found via Peter Cox's Blog, that sends you daily instalments of a book of your choice. I went into the classics sections and chose The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels. I just couldn’t fail to be hooked by the opening:

“A spectre is haunting Europe--the spectre of Communism. All the Powers of old Europe have entered into a holy alliance to exorcise this spectre: Pope and Czar, Metternich and Guizot, French Radicals and German police-spies.”

If there are any good sex bits, you’ll be the first to know.
