It's Monday! What are you reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, who says it's "where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list."

This is the first time I've joined the fun, and I like the way Helen of Helen's Book Blog lists her books in three categories.
