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!

Fans Of Ancient Egyptian Historical Fiction, Listen Up!
Daphne and Tanzanite's Shelf and Stuff alerted her reader's to a couple of upcoming books, but one is a book that I must encourage my reader's to check out:
I read Pauline Gedge's Child of the Morning years ago, and I remember it like it was yesterday. The story of Egypt's only woman Pharaoh, Queen Hatshepsut, is majestic, heartbreaking and one of my favorite books of All Time. I'm talking Top 10 of Ever.
If that isn't enough, Michelle Moran of Nefertiti and The Heretic Queen fame, has written a Foreword for the new edition. How perfect is that? It doesn't come out until April 2010, but my copy is already preordered. I can't wait!!
