Being on a budget is no excuse for not satisfying your cravings for African novels. I took a quick look through amazon and found these great titles for cheap. Some are as low as $1.99.

There’re kindle editions though. Look through. See what you like, download, and start reading. If you don’t have Kindle, it’s super-easy to download the Kindle reader on your computer.

Anyway, enjoy!
