After all that hardcore work at grad school, my friends, it’s only fitting I get myself a reward, eh? I already mentioned most of this stuff in a previous entry, but here a pics of it! I ordered it all at grad school and had it mailed to me back home, here’s the packaging…
And here’s all the stuff, all unwrapped:
Noice, eh? 😀 To restate what I got in case you can’t read the titles off the pic:
1: Necrom, by Mick Farren: I loved this book as a kid.
2: Over Here (a history of WWI) and
3: Freedom from Fear (a history of WWII), both from David Kennedy. I read these from the library for my orals and liked them so much I wanted to own them!
4: Altered Pasts by Richard J. Evans. A book on alternate history from one of my favorite historians 😀
Jalali, Ali Ahmad
–I want to learn more about the Soviet-Afghan war.
I also want to learn more about New Haven’s history (I already bought 3 books about Yale history from the local Barnes and Nobles :D)
Got interested in reading “World of Ptavvs” after hearing about it from some kook’s blog. I suspect his interpretation of it was pretty far out; we’ll see when I read it. XD
I loved this book as a kid and wanted a new copy 😀
Another book on Nazi Germany I bought cause I really like Michael Burleigh.
I also want to learn more about the Korean War 😮
Again, got both books for learning about the Afghan War.
Professor Connolly wrote me a recommendation for grad school, so I always wanted to read his book and finally have the chance now >:O!!
Again, read this and loved it for my oral exams, so I wanted to own it 😀
More soviet-Afghan war goodness!
Some nice /m/echa on this list! I loved best of the bolos so I wanted to read this book as well 😀
Once again, more Korean War stuff~
The Coming of the Third Reich
Richard J. Evans
Evans, Richard J.
And of course BLOODBORNE 😀
Pretty cool, pretty cool 😉 See y’all later!
