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!

Indefinite Hiatus




After much thought, Books 'N Border Collies had decided to go on indefinite hiatus to pursue some personal goals. I have had a great time and will still be around reading and commenting on many of the great blogs out there but not doing much posting myself. I will leave the blog up, but I'm turning off the ability to post anonymously so I don't have to keep monitoring all the silly spam that shows up.

Now I'm going to go play in the snow with the boys! My, Skye, what big teeth you have! :-)

Oh no! Please don't go away completely - I want to hear from you on my blog, ok?! I'll miss you. :(

Literary Feline said...

Good luck with your goals, Lezlie. I'm so glad to have gotten to know you. Definitely don't be a stranger.

My best to you and, as always, to the dogs. :-)

Charley said...

Pursuing Personal Goals -- a wonderful idea. And great photos of your dogs. Those are some impressive fangs.

Anna said...

Though I'll miss you terribly, I wish you the best of luck! Enjoy your time away, but I hope you'll come back at some point.

I am so going to miss you on here Lezlie! Being the rock star that you are I was wondering if you were planning to see Bon Jovi in April. If so, maybe we can get together for dinner or drinks before the concert? Just let me know what you think!

You know, I've been thinking about you lately, and wondering if something was up. You've been quieter. Good for you to focus on what is important and necessary for your life. Please come visit sometimes, okay?

Best of luck.

LOL! I love the glasses! And what great snow puppies they are. :)

Andi said...

Well I hate that I was away grading and missed the initial announcement, but I do wish you the best of luck in all things, Lezlie, and I hope to see you around the blogosphere. Your reading has enriched my own over the time I've been reading, and I just adore you. :)

Serena said...

Lezlie, you are a doll. I love reading your blog, about your boys and about your learning project. I wish you luck with your personal goals and hope that you will still be popping around SavvyVerse&Wit every once in a blue moon.

Lisa said...

Good Luck with your goals, Lezlie. I didn't comment much, but I loved reading about the boys.

J. Kaye said...

Can't say I blame you! I'm toning it down in 2010. Have fun. :) Lots of it!!

Laura's Reviews said...

Good luck with everything and I hope you are back soon!

BookPlease said...

I'm late reading this because of my own hiatus (moving house + Christmas). I will miss your posts and photos, so I'm sad you're having an indefinite break but I wish you the best of luck with everything and hope you'll be back in a while even if it's just to let us know how you're getting on.

Rebecca Reid said...

Oh no! Lezlie, I always look forward to your succinct reviews! I know how much work it is to always be writing them up, though, and updating things. So I hope it all goes well in 2010. I'll miss seeing your new posts!

Ladytink_534 said...

Happy holidays and enjoy your break!

zetor said...

You'll be a great miss but I wish you well in pursuing your goals and very best wishes for a Happy Christmas.

Rose City Reader said...

Best wishes to you! I will miss your posts -- they are some of my favorite and the ones I always remember to check. But good luck with your new endeavors!

Have a Merry Christmas!

And thanks for following Rose City Reader! Your comments are always much appreciated.

Lezlie said...

Thank you so much, everyone! I don't suspect my hiatus will be permanent. Just long enough to give my mind a break, rewrite my own rules and decide how I want go forward. Peter doesn't believe I'll last long out of the game. I hate it when I suspect he's right. :-)

Have a Merry Christmas, Everyone!
Lezlie

Lu @ Regular Rumination said...

I'm going to miss you!! Hopefully we'll see you around here soon. Merry Christmas :)

Teddy Rose said...

I'm going to miss your posts but can totally understand why you would want to take a break. I think about doing it often but just can't seem to stop blogging. Good for you! I will continue to subscribe for when you come back.

Happy Holidays!

Carrie said...

You will definitely be missed!

mattviews said...

Good luck with your goals, and may them be fulfilled in the coming year. Happy Holidays! :)

SFP said...

I do hope you'll be back, Lezlie, but blog when and however you want to and don't think you need to conform to anyone else's ideas of how things ought to be.

Take care. Enjoy youself.

joanna said...

Hi Lezlie, thanks for the holiday wishes, hope you had a good Xmas too! Hope your personal goals benefit from your hiatus and I'm happy that you'll still be around the blogosphere, it wouldn't be the same without you!

Dar said...

Lezlie, I'm going to miss you. I hope you'll come back and I really do hope we'll keep in touch. You're one of my first blogging buddies and I'll miss you. I hope you and Peter and the furkids have a great New Year!

damnedconjuror said...

that's a shame, the blogosphere will look different without you

good luck with your goals

stay cool

Amy @ Passages to the Past said...

We'll miss you!! All the best on your goals and kisses to Max and Skye - they look so cute playing in the snow!

Susan said...

I'm late to this, but still, sad to see you go, happy to see you pursue goals and play with your dogs (and husband). Take care, thanks for all you wrote about!

The Hermit said...

Good luck in the new endeavors... if you check back in, I'd really appreciate your checking out my Border Collie Angelo's new book, Angelo's Journey. It's the story of his being dognapped, and then how he found his way home, and the lives he touched along the way.

It's available on the Kindle platform (so you can read it on your Kindle, your PC, your Mac, your smartphone, your iPad) at http://www.amazon.com/Angelos-Journey-ebook/dp/B004RYW53U/

Best wishes in your new adventures!
