I am generally interested in the works of the so called Perennialist School, especially those of Frithjof Schuon. By Borella I already read "The Sense of the Supernatural", unfortunately I have had no occasion yet to read something by Wolfgang Smith.

The Man Who Saved the Union: Ulysses Grant in War and Peace: H.W. Brands: 9780385532419: Amazon.com: Books

Hhaha....I do NOT want this book. If I could, I would give it away to someone
here. I'll never read this one. Maybe I'll donate it to my school's library.
So this is Grant! I wondered who was the guy on Viperlord's avatar.

Me, I am reading Lincoln by David Donald. Awesome book.

Wink my current book


I am taking a class titled The Napoleonic Wars and the Long Peace. The text for the course is titled The Wars of Napoleon by Thomas E. Griess. Thus far the book is very informative since I am still building my knowledge base on the era.

I bought this book tonight at Barnes and Noble Booksellers. It looked like a interesting book.
