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!

How Cool Is This??




For the last three years Peter and I have been reading the various annual editions of The Intellectual Devotional, which we have loved. The various topics are always interesting, but I inevitably look forward to Literature day every week. What would be my 2010 Edition is going to be all about health and wellness. Intriguing, but I think it may get bumped because I found this: The Bibliophile's Devotional: 365 Days of Literary Classics!! I mean seriously. Does it get any better than that? I think not! Yes. I bought it. Score!! It's on my nightstand waiting impatiently for New Year's Day.

Oh. My. Gosh. I need this immediately.

Nan said...

I'm getting it! Thank you for the post. It sounds great! One question - it isn't just for 2010 is it?

Lezlie said...

Nan ~ No. The dates just read Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 with no year. We can use it over and over again! Yay! Or pass it on to the next book lover. We can only hope they make a series out of this!

It just got added to my amazon wish list. I must have this!!

Lezlie said...

JoAnn ~ Cool! I wanted to make sure I let you all know about it as soon as I saw it. I'm betting it will be a popular item among book bloggers this holiday season!

Oh said...

oh, great! This must go on the list, NOT on the stack.
And then I was returning a book which is overdue, to the library today and started reading it in the car before I gave it back and I really really like it.
So that goes on the list-to-stack, too! (Btw, it's OUTLIERS by Malcolm Gladwell).

Veens said...

GOD! i love the sound of this one!!!!!!!!

Eva said...

This sounds so awesome! I've been coveting The Intellectual Devotional forever now.

Lezlie said...

Oh ~ Which ones do you read first -- the list or the stack? For me, the stack would come first because those would be the books I own, the list are things I want to read but I don't have yet.

Veens ~ It's every bit as good as it sounds! It's all I can do to keep my hands off it until the beginning of the year.

Eva ~ Not to wish the year away, but I can't wait to start it. I think you would love the Intellectual Devotionals. So much information in nice bite size chunks!!

Jenny said...

Very cool!!! I need to get this too!

Amy said...

This does look cool!! On the wishlist it goes! :)

Lezlie said...

Jenny & Amy ~ It's too bad we book bloggers can't get a discounted bulk order on this one. :-)

zetor said...

Sounds very cool to me!

Lezlie said...

Zetor ~ I thumbed through it just a little last night. This is going to do some severe damage to the TBR!

Diane said...

We all need a copy of this one; great find.

Lezlie said...

Diane ~ Thanks! It's fun to be the "finder" for once! :-)

carolsnotebook said...

Okay, I need this!

Lezlie said...

Carol's Notebook ~ I hope you get a copy! I shouldn't get to have the fun all by myself. :-)

Nan said...

So, you could begin tonight! Why wait till January 1? :<)

Lezlie said...

Nan ~ Oh, don't think I haven't been tempted!! :-) I'm sticking to my plan though. This year I will continue to read The Intellectual Devotional nightly, and this one will wait its turn. It's hard though!

Andi said...

WOW! Never heard of this. Must do homework on it NOW.

Lezlie said...

Andi ~ I had never seen one like this either. I was thrilled when I stumbled across it!

Michele at Reader's Respite said...

Must. Have. This. NOW.

Joanne ♦ The Book Zombie said...

ZOMG! This is awesome! I am getting myself one for the new year. And I think they would make perfect xmas gifts for some of my classmates - what better treat for library students!!

Lezlie said...

Michele ~ Yup. I understand. :-)

Joanne ~ I couldn't agree more! And what a great classmate you are!

Lezlie

Anna said...

That's awesome. I'll have to tell my husband. He's always looking for gift ideas for me. But then again, he says he'd like to get me something other than books. Well, it's worth a try. ;)

Anna ~ While I can appreciate your husband's sentiments, mine has given up and just buys me book-related stuff. :-) It's definitely worth a try.
