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!

What Was I Thinking?


Let's see. I've got The Faerie Queene, Ulysses and Madame Bovary all going at the same time. No wonder I've been a little cranky lately. Didn't I say something before about this kind of thing being a bad idea? :-) OK. It wasn't an "idea". It turned out this way due to requests at the library becoming available. Honestly though, I may have to pick up some Dr. Seuss or something. Soon. Before my brain turns to mush. With all due respect to Spencer, Joyce and Flaubert, of course. ;-)

Nothing wrong with a little Dr. Seuss break! I can probably recite One Fish, Two Fish and Go Dog, Go from memory ;-)

I've kind of given up on the library for that reason. It seems like all my books come in at the same time, no matter when I put them on hold.

Eva said...

That's intense Lezlie! Good luck. ;)

JoAnn ~ Those are two of my favorites!!! "Do you like my hat?" :-) Great stuff!!

Bermudaonion ~ I hear you. I need to restrain myself a bit. I'm thinking next time I set my monthly goals I should include something about reading off my own shelves for a couple weeks at least.

Eva ~ Thanks! I did pick up a Dave Barry book at the library yesterday for a little mindless fun this weekend!

At least with those three there's no danger you'll get them mixed up - or maybe you will!

Lezlie said...

Margaret ~ I think you're right! I haven't mixed them up so far anyway. :-)

I have that problem with the library too. The books will have holds on them a mile long and yet seem to all come in at the same time. I can't wait to see what you think of Madame Bovary. I tried reading it at one time and just couldn't get into it-maybe it was just the wrong time for me.

Jo-Jo said...

Dr. Seuss just may be the perfect answer with these heavy books that you have going on! lol

Lezlie said...

Dar ~ It must be some form of Murphy's Law, don't you think? I'm liking Madame Bovary so far, but I personally think Emma needs a whack upside the head. :-)

Jo-Jo ~ I have Go, Dog, Go on the shelf in the basement if I get desperate. :-)

Emma most definitely does need a good whack along side the head. Great diagnosis Dr. Lezlie. LOL! You may need one too, maybe you should visit Dr. Seuss for a second opinion.

Lezlie said...

Teddy Rose ~ :-) I already feel relief coming on. I finished The Faerie Queene last night! Yay!

Definitely sounds like you could use some brain candy or something a little "softer".

Lezlie said...

Ladytink ~ I've got Dave Barry all lined up to start tonight. I'm so excited!!

Good heavens! I didn't know you were reading those three at the same time. Yes, what were you thinking??? :o)

Lezlie said...

Terri ~ Thankfully, I have one down, one almost down, and one over half way down. I'm in the home stretch!!
