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!

100 Books Done!!



I finished my 100th book for the year last night!! That means the 100+ Book Challenge is finished. Yahoo! The rest are all gravy! I'll have my review up for Agatha Christie's Cards On The Table later today, but I just had to do the victory post right away. :-)

Next year I'm considering setting the bar at 150 books, but I still have some time to think about that. The other Challenge I've got my eye on, which would help greatly with a 150 book goal, is the New Author Challenge. The idea is to read 50 new-to-you authors in 2009, but you may set the goal at whatever number you wish. Again, I have plenty of time to think about it. But with the election over and winter setting in, I feel my resolve to limit my reading challenges crumbling to dust. Bring 'em on!! :-)

Joy ~ Thanks! I don't think I'll ever finish as many Challenges as you do though. :-)

Charley ~ Thank you! It's usually the number I have in the back of my mind when the year starts, so I was glad to have an official challenge to help reach it.

Bookish Ruth ~ Isn't it fun to pass that 100 mark and then see just how much more you can pack in? I'm cheering for you!
