30+ books for you to check out — Part 2


This is the second of a multi-part series. I'm cleaning out my list of Amazon Shout Outs because I'm going to redesign the sign up process. There's more than 30 books that I haven't featured yet. Here's the second set (10 of them); they are in the order in which I received them. For this clean-out series I am not bothering with genre.
