I would do a separate source for each page number, since you will be quoting passages from the books. It will be simple and easier with copy and paste. All you have to do is just change the page number in the source citation. This will make it easier for the reader, so they can just jump to what you are referencing too.

Use blockquote for referencing a passage from a book

Sidenote: you don't have to bold the page numbers in the citation, I just did that so you can see where it is located.

You can play around in here, to adjust to your liking.
