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 need to focus! There is so much I want to read and I want to read it all right now. :-) I'm going to finish out this month reading The Woman in the Dunes and The Confessions of Nat Turner and listening to The Woman in White and Misquoting Jesus. After that, I need to buckle down and make a plan for March.
I'm already finding myself completely distracted from all the challenges I signed up for and wanting to make my plans around my Teaching Company courses. I've ordered books like The Cambridge Introduction to Narrative and Norton Critical Editions of some of the books to see if I can give my personal studies even more of a "school" feel. I've decided to go with what I'm the most excited about, and if my reading challenges fall by the wayside a bit, it's no big deal. I love the challenges, because they always get me involved in some books I may have never looked at otherwise, but I'm going to try to view them in much the same way I view recommended reading lists -- as a jumping off point. I'm going to let the current take me where it may! I hope you'll hang around for the ride!
Totally unrelated, I updated the photos of Jack, Skye and Max on my blog page. Stop by and take a peek! Also, I haven't been very diligent about my blogroll. If you are a reader of Books 'N Border Collies, please let me know if a link to your blog is not included. I'll get it added right away!
Have a great day, everyone!
