Wrestling Books

I have gone through the motions when it comes to being a wrestling fan – avid fan as a child, a little embarrassed as I got older, very much into it in my late teens when everyone was, moved to uni and nobody was that interested so it died a little for me, then a conversion back to big fan.  However, no matter how unembarrassed I now am of being a fan, there are very few people I know who are also fans, so it tends to be something that I talk very little about.  Except in my book blog, where all of the wrestling books I read get an airing.

I’d like to get through them all, and so – for the very few of you who care, but particularly for myself – here are all of the ones I have read since the start of 2010.
