Reading List

Currently Reading:
Staying Power – The History of Black People in Britain

Peter Fryer

In the past 3 years I have ready many books, and through these different resources, I have picked up titles from various authors reading lists and recommendations from friends. This list is forever growing!

I try my best to buy these books to reduce the list, but this is what I currently have planned to buy and read. Let me know if you have any of these books in the comments and tell me what you think!
