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!

Yeah, I'm still at it. Someone's gotta keep the bookstores in business. It might as well be me. :-)
First up, the geek in me had to have Wishful Drinking by Princess Leia . . . I mean, Carrie Fisher. Love the cover!! This is Carrie Fisher's memoir and I'll be suspending all other reading this weekend for it.
Carrie Fisher's book was part of the "Buy One, Get One 50% Off" promotion, so I had to pick a second one from the table. Bummer, huh? :-) I opted for the paperback edition of 2666 by Roberto Bolano. I have no idea when I'll actually get to this but it's one I've been wanting to purchase, so there you go. Excuse provided!
I picked up Marcel Proust's Search for Lost Time: A Reader's Guide to The Remembrance of Things Past by Patrick Alexander because I do plan to finish The Remembrance of Things Past someday. I read Swann's Way back when I first started this blog and enjoyed it quite a bit, but I've been intimidated to continue with the series. This is supposed to be informative and funny, and that's a great combination. I'll take that, thank you!
And last but not least I picked up a little hardcover called The 100 Greatest Poems of All Time because it was only $5.99 and why not, right? We could all use a little more poetry in our lives even if we don't really get it. ;-)
Have a great weekend, everyone!
