In The Spotlight A-L

Hello, All,

Thanks to an excellent suggestion from José Ignacio of The Game’s Afoot,  I’ve decided to create a list of the books that I’ve taken a close look at for my In The Spotlight feature. Please feel free to visit this A-L list any time and catch up with any editions of In The Spotlight that you might want to look at again. I’ll be adding new titles here as I spotlight different books. As always, if there is a book or author you would like to see in the spotlight, please send me an Email.
