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.
