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!

Distractions


I've been all caught up in Jewel Quest again. Sometimes a girl just needs some mindless distraction to unwind. Peter thinks it's because I'm not liking The Power and the Glory, which is not entirely true, but not entirely untrue either. I think I'm reading it when I'm too tired, so much of it is being lost on me, which is a bummer as I was really looking forward to reading it. I'm almost done, though, so I'll have more to say on that later this week.

Other than that, all is well. Jack is relaxing all over the house like a good, old kitty. Skye and Max are a little confused about why Peter and I are not spending more time outside with them, but they'll adjust. Winter is always a tough time for them. The whole "spending time in the house" thing takes some getting used to every year.

I hope all is well with all of you, and you're finding some fabulous new Challenges to take on for 2009! If you're looking for ideas, click here. There are a lot of fun ones already announced and more on the way! I'm still holding out for the 2009 Chunkster Challenge. . .

Happy Reading, Everyone!

Lezlie, it's the same thing here in the winter. It takes Buddy a while to figure out why he can't go sit outside all the time. Consequently my lovely little boy is bad for a while until he adjusts. lol.

I've been having a hard time lately focusing on reading and I have so much to catch up on. I'm hoping it passes soon.

Dar ~ Focus is definitely an issue, hence the computer game. Even if I'm not loving a book, I don't usually have a problem getting it finished up. I'm with you. I hope it passes soon. We have all kinds of Challenges to start soon! :-)

I hate it when that happens - I mean when I really want to read something and then I can't concentrate on it properly because I'm too tired. I currently have that with Guns, Germs and Steel. :-(
I guess we need to quit our jobs and other pursuits and just devote all our energy to reading! ;-)

Joanna ~ I second that motion! By the way, I loved "Guns, Germs and Steel", as did my husband. That is one that should be required reading everywhere. But it would definitely be a tough one when you're tired!
