I suggest stopping by librivox.org and picking up a free audio copy of the book (version 4 has a wonderful reader, he sounds like Walter Cronkite), you can also get it as a podcast if you want it on your ipod/ipad ... then pop over at project Gutenberg for a free copy of the text. Listen and read at the same time and the text will only take about 2 days to finish ( includes for interpersonal relationship time)
