I have included titles that have been updated since our last list (March 2016) and added a few new titles as well.

New titles include recently published items as well as titles that haven't been on the list before.There are a couple that are so new they don't have a link yet; I will update the links when they become available. I wanted to put these on your radar in the meantime!
