Angelo's List of Books Read in Prison in 2010, 2009, 2008 and 2007

Angelo is an artist who is currently incarcerated in a maximum security prison in California. He is a voracious reader, however, nearly everything he reads comes from either the prison library or other inmates. Even if one had the resources to buy a lot of books, the amount of personal property that inmates can retain in prison is extremely limited. These lists that Angelo assembles each year document not only what he has read, but convey the range of books that some American prisoners have access to in the institutions.
