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!

2009 Buy A Book and Read It Challenge

Another one I can't pass up. In an effort to assist our favorite bookstores in this time of economic nastiness, Amy from My Friend Amy is hosting the Buy A Book And Read It Challenge. I've taken option #2: Buy one book each month and, well, read it. I can do that! I'm leaving my list open to whatever options sound good each month, but I will list them all here as I finish and review them.

Completed: 12/12 as of December 12, 2009

Jan. -- Dawn by Elie Wiesel
Feb. -- The Woman In The Dunes by Kobo Abe
Mar. -- Survival In Auschwitz by Primo Levi
Apr. -- Waiting for the Barbarians by J.M. Coetzee
May -- The Penguin State of the World Atlas by Dan Smith
June -- Renegade by Richard Wolffe
July -- The Devil's Queen by Jeanne Kalogridis
Aug. -- The Book of Illusions by Paul Auster
Sept. -- High Fidelity by Nick Hornby

Oh my! Do you think my husband would put a lock on my wallet that I can't open? LOL But then, we are agreeing to read the book soon after we buy it . . .

Literary Feline ~ Exactly! These aren't going to sit around. That's the excuse I'm going with anyway. :-)

Sounds like a great challenge, and I may just do this, but with WWII books only.

Serena ~ That's a great plan!
