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!

Help! I'm Purchasing Books and I Can't Stop!
After my confession about Harold Bloom being my secret hero, I started actively searching out some books in the various series he edits. One of those series is Bloom's Modern Critical Views, published by Chelsea House, which I believe currently consists of 82 Volumes, plus a number of others now out of print. I checked the volumes on Graham Greene and Richard Wright out of the library and decided I need to have these books. Shocking, I know. Unfortunately, these babies are about $45 each. Ouch. But thanks to third-party sellers on Amazon, I was able to get my hands on the Paul Auster and Vladimir Nabokov volumes for about $13 each! I'm in heaven! And I'm just getting started. I want the volumes on Cormac McCarthy, Philip Roth, Kurt Vonnegut, Margaret Atwood, James Baldwin, Don Delillo . . . Shall I go on? :-) Suffice it to say I want them all. Good thing I truly enjoy Macaroni & Cheese, because that might be supper for the next year or so. LOL!
