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!

Book Awards 3 Reading Challenge
I'm in! This time it's five books from five different awards from July 1 to Dec. 1, 2009. I recently finished Books Awards II and I still have award winners lined up to read, so I'm ready! I'll fill them in as I go along, because I don't know exactly which ones I want to read. I only know there are a lot!

1. The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11 by Lawrence Wright (Pulitzer Prize)
