Reading groups happen at Pages in Lower Clapton, The Mill E17, The Clapton Hart E5, Hackney Libraries, and all over. It’s a good way to discipline yourself to read a book! And they are free events and in Hackney Libraries lovely Lydia will get the book freely for you . Other times there’s Ebay and Amazon and check the Honesty Library down at the Mill in E17 and the Salvation Army Shop in Forest Rd increasingly called the Thrift Shop.

Hope you fine something you like especially over Black History Month 2012.
