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!

The Paris Review Interviews, I
The Paris Review Interviews, II
The Paris Review Interviews, III
I've been watching my Teaching Company DVDs for The Art of Reading, and the instructor highly recommended these books of author interviews originally printed in The Paris Review. I couldn't resist when I saw the lists of authors included: Graham Greene, William Faulkner, Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, Kurt Vonnegut, Martin Amis . . . the list goes on! There is also a fourth volume due out this October. I bought all three of the first volumes, and lucky me! Volume II has a copyright date of 2007, so guess what I get to read to finish off my Countdown Challenge! Excellent!
I also bought Nick Hornby's Housekeeping vs. the Dirt and Shakespeare Wrote for Money, because I read The Polysyllabic Spree over the weekend and LOVED it! I'll be posting more of my thoughts on that this week.
Just a reminder -- There are a couple more weeks to get a discount on that beautiful reader's companion A Life Well Read. Again, I have no connection to the product other than I reviewed it and think it's great! I have no monetary stake in your potential purchase. If you haven't heard about A Life Well Read, you can see my post here.
Have a great week, everyone!
