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!

I'm listening to Philip Roth's Indignation on my commute this week, and there is a scene in which the main character is quoting from Bertrand Russell's essay, "Why I Am Not A Christian". It was only a handful of lines, but I have to admit I was intrigued enough to print out the entire essay and will be reading it this weekend for the Essay Reading Challenge. I'll report back when I am finished. That is, assuming I haven't been struck by lightning or anything. :-)
Other than that, there is not a lot to report on the reading front. I'll be finishing How to Think About the Great Ideas and starting Book II of The Faerie Queene. I'm hoping to have enough of a reading stretch to make serious headway into Going After Cacciato. And as if I don't have enough books going and sitting on the desk from the library waiting their turn, I just received three Albert Camus books from Amazon and The Federalist Papers and The Anti-Federalist Papers and the Constitutional Convention Debates are scheduled to arrive today. Then there are those cool lit courses sitting there patiently waiting for my undivided attention. I think I need to quit my job. It's really getting in the way. :-)
