How Shall We Grapple With the Leviathan?

I want to use this thread to get together a schedule and process for getting through Hobbes. My highest aim is to have as many of those who start with us, finish with us. In that vein, how do we feel about doing 2-3 chapters a week? The chapters are really, really short--some shorter than others. 


Honestly, I would really like to go as slow as one chapter a week. That would take us through much of the year, but I think our discussions would be really thorough and I think more people might be inclined to join in. What say you assembled Horde?

UPDATE: So having taken a good round of opinion, we'll do one chapter a week. I want to encourage maximum participation and really deep reading. How about we start with the Introduction. Let's meet back here next Friday 2/8, and talk Leviathan. Looking forward to it guys.
