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!

2nds Challenge

J. Kaye of J. Kaye's book blog is hosting this Challenge to read 12 books by authors by whom you have only read one previous work, be it book or short story. It's a great excuse to get back to those authors you've been meaning to revisit! I don't know for certain who or what I will read, but here is a partial list of authors from which I am looking forward to a second helping:

Julian Barnes
Margaret Campbell Barnes
Lewis Black
Clare Clark
Edwidge Dandicat
Catherine Delors
Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Kazuo Ishiguro
Marcel Proust
Jeane Kalogridis
C.W. Gortner
Sandra Gulland
Robert Graves
Barbara Kyle
Haruki Murakami
Chuck Palahniuk
Sharon Kay Penman
Elie Wiesel

I'm thinking I'll be able to find something here to cover this Challenge. :-)

Oh no! And I actually want to listen to more audiobooks next year too. Yikes! I may have to quit my job after all!
