      Reading #7, pp. 13-14 /ends section end, p.14 @ '... because we can no longer imagine things any other way.'/ Many thanks to Iolanthe the Incredible, my littlest house-mate, for a wonderful guest reading. _______ This is a vlog series of incremental book readings from David Graeber’s much discussed book, 'Debt The First 5000 Years', published by Melville House Books. Each reading will be between five and six minutes long (and obviously in order, from the beginning of the book to the end). I generally wish to record and present each reading as unedited as possible (as I would read, that is, if in the same room). _____________

            So, he's been sort of reading stuff recently. He definitely knows some words and will point them out as the appear in real life (beer, blue, brad farwell, terrible, horrible, salt, sauce, etc... and I'm trying not to draw any conclusions about his home life based on the word choice. Still, this book-reading seems a little crazy. Could he read those sentences out of context? Well, maybe not. But it did freak me out a little.
