I'm reading Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man still.

For an AP Gov paper though, I need some great books on President Grant, especially his presidency. Given the generic biography names, if anyone knows of any especially marvellous ones, could you let me know?

Oh man, I tried that book two months ago. I made it 3/4 through before finally giving up. It might be a short and a classic, but I found it so personally boring that I just couldn't focus through an entire chapter. Siddhartha was a much more enjoyable coming-of-age novel for me.

It's surprisingly long. I'm into Joyce, Ireland, and the early 20th century, so that's pretty much saved it for me. Plus, I don't feel like finding another book for my term paper.
