NOTICE: (Updated March 5, 2010)

Beginning December 19, 2009, Books 'N Border Collies will be posting but only intermittently while I pursue personal goals. I plan to share some reading I'm doing, but there will be no reviews. I will, however, be sharing my exploration of vegetarian cooking and the cookbooks and websites I use to educate myself. I hope you enjoy it!

24 Hour Read-AThon - I'm In!!




I'm in! I decided at the last minute, so now I need to go to bed so I can get up early and get started!! I certainly won't read all this tomorrow, but in addition to catching up on a few short stories for the Short Story Challenge, here are a few of the books I have lined up as potentials fodder:

Man In The Dark -- Paul Auster
Dumb Witness -- Agatha Christie
Mortal Stakes -- Robert B. Parker
The Queen's Man -- Sharon Kay Penman
The Book of Samson -- David Maine
Change We Can Believe In -- Barack Obama
The Shock Doctrine -- Naomi Klein
Amusing Ourselves To Death -- Neil Postman
Wild Boy: My Life In Duran Duran -- Andy Taylor

There are a bunch more that I may dabble in, but these were the first ones to catch my eye when I decided to go for it.

See everyone bright and early!

Have fun with the Read-A-Thon. You've made some nice choices. I haven't read any of those titles, but the Obama and Klein books are on my list.

The only one of those I know - and have read - is Man In The Dark. I hope you get to read that one. The others sound just from their titles like an interesting mix of books.

Best of luck!
