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!

Historical Mysteries, Anyone?
So, I'm strolling around Barnes & Noble yesterday looking at books about Twitter and Facebook trying to decide if I want to jump into modern social networking or not. You have to remember I am a woman who owns a cell phone that does not take pictures and just got off her dial-up Internet connection last summer. I'm not real quick on the techno-uptake. Anyway, that's not the point. The point is that since I was at the bookstore, I could not limit myself to the one area I was interested in when I walked in the door. I decided to scan a couple shelves of mysteries because why not? Right? And here is what I found:
To Shield the Queen by Fiona Buckley is the first is a series of historical mysteries set in the time of Elizabeth I, and they have been reissued with some beautiful covers! It looks at a glance like there are about eight books in the series. Has anyone out there read any of them? They look wonderful!!
