My Collection Of African Literature. (Suggestions Are Welcome) by Nobody: 8:57am On Jun 23, 2022
I currently have just under 30 African Literature books. This number pales in comparison to the over 300 foreign literature that I possess. I need more recommendations.

I'll list the ones I have and if you know others that aren't in my library, please suggest for me.

Thanks.

I'll list them in Alphabetical order using the Author's names.

Don't mind my style. I love art and pictures, and I like to take my time to list the books.

You might. You can go on Instagram and check for handles of Nigerian literature stores and you'll probably find it on one of those stores. They will ship it your location in Nigeria.
