What did you read this summer?

Books are my drugs. Here's what I've snorted, inhaled, swallowed, this summer:
(note: Fictionwise has a great collection of classic books for reading on your PDA. I decided to see 1) how many I could find for free; 2) how many I had already read 3) finish the rest. So in between current books are many titles available from gutenberg.com as text or html) If anyone cares, I can add print vs e-book or my opinion, but as always, YMMV.
