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!

Happy Blogiversary To Me!
Wow! Books 'N Border Collies is one year old today! As you can see, Max and Skye are thrilled! They even interrupted their "No, it's my bone" game to stop and say hello to all the great bloggers I've met in the last year. They said they'd love to sign autographs, but -- you know -- that whole opposable thumb thing. :-)
In my very first post I listed 5 things about me to introduce myself. For my first blogiversay, I'll list my five favorite books from my first year of blogging in the order I read them.
1. In The Company of the Courtesan by Sarah Dunant
2. A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens
3. The Romanov Bride by Robert Alexander
4. I, Claudius by Robert Graves
5. Roots by Alex Haley
That was harder to narrow down than I thought it was going to be! And the only reason War & Peace is not included is because I read most of it in Dec. of 2007. I finished it in Jan. of 2008, and I make my lists by the date I finish.
Thanks to everyone who has made this last year so exciting, and here's to the entire book blogging community for many fun years to come! Strawberry Margaritas for all!
