It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (September 18th)

"Books are a hard-bound drug with no danger of an overdose. I am a happy victim of books."

(Okay, TUESDAY, but still.  Book entries are usually on Monday so...yes)
(Also the computer put them into alphabetical order - more random?)

I love the quote/image above -- especially the detail of letters/dust that "fly" off the page and turn into a hummingbird!  Found it recently and decided it had to be the image at the top of one of my "What are you reading?" posts.  I am not sticking strictly to books that have been read in the past week, although some are included, however I wanted to add some books that I normally may not have chosen on my own.  The following are a few books that were random pick-ups, lent by a friend, suggested reads, etc etc.  Also, obviously, I decided to not post this on Monday (17th) as planned but I had mentioned I might move my book entries to Tuesdays and that is what ended up happening this week and I should return to Monday posts next week so... Enjoy!
