Recommended Reading

Potentially, some most important posts on this site will be those posted using the “recommended reading” tag, since it’s that which will be used to aim people at stuff (since no-one cares what us adoptees actually say for ourselves).

Yup, already can’t think of much in the way of introductory stuff, so on with the reading lists.
