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!

Que Up The Theme From Rocky!



I have officially completed The Faerie Queene Challenge!! When I posted yesterday, my plan had been to take a couple of days to finish it off. Turns out I was more impatient to move on than I had anticipated. Peter left me to my task on the patio and kindly planted flowers while I ground out the last 100 or so pages. (Thanks, honey!!)

So that's it! Five and half months, seven books, seventy-five cantos, hundreds and hundreds of verses, one thousand pages. Victory!! I'll be posting my thoughts and a few novice tips for reading it tomorrow, but today I'm basking in the glory of achievement. And bragging. Just a little bit. :-)

Thanks, everybody! I feel like I've graduated to a whole new level of reading. But not right now. Right now I'm moving on to Dave Barry so I can laugh hysterically for a few hours. I also have a new book about classics I'm thumbing through. I'll tell you all about it in a couple days. It looks like fun!
