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!

Lifetime Learning Project: 2009 General Concepts
The yearly "goals" I will set for my Lifetime Learning Project are general concepts I would like to explore along with one or two specific Projects to support them.
2009 General Concepts
1) To explore various methods of self-education on various topics in order to identify subjects and techniques I would like to use going forward with my Lifetime Learning Project (LLP).
2) To expand my knowledge regarding how to study and write about literature in general.
3) To utilize Books 'N Border Collies to hone my writing and communication skills in an effort to provide entertaining and educational content for my readers.
Mini-Project 1: Read all the books and listen to all the lectures for The Teaching Company Course "Classic Novels: Meeting The Challenge of Great Literature".
Mini-Project 2: Compose an essay on the use of Reading Challenges for personal growth and self-education.
At the end of the year, I will revisit all of these goals in writing. I will explain what I did to achieve each one or why achievement was not attained.
To assist in achievement of the General Concepts, I am setting both flexible quarterly goals and more concrete monthly goals. I started this too late to include First Quarter of 2009, so I will begin this year's plan with Second Quarter:
2009 Second Quarter Goals
2009 Third Quarter Goals
2009 Fourth Quarter Goals
(Note: I will be writing the "Goals" posts in the future and will link them here as they are finished. The whole Project will be linked in my sidebar for easy access. I'm off to write Second Quarter Goals now!)
