What The Readers are Reading: Part the Second

Well, this post has taken awhile. Sorry about that, and thanks for your patience. I have heard from a couple of you, and that has motivated me to keep working on it. The hold up was learning how to link to my affiliate account (the kind of link that ends up compensating me when/if you purchase the book.) After a few tries, plenty of confusion, and some kind assistance, I think I have it figured out. (Thanks, MFS.) The Part the First entry has generic links; this will still get you to information about the books (the most important thing), but it does not allow you to bestow upon me your patronage (which is nice, but the not the Big Reason for doing such a list.) I'll get around to changing those links when I am finally done with listing all the interesting books you are reading. (After Part the Fourth? Fifth? We shall see.)

With no further disclaimers or advertisements, here is Part the Second of what YOU are reading:
