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!

This sounds like just the thing for me, since I'm planning to sign up for pretty much every challenge going again and I'll be broke because we're buying a house! Thanks for the info! :-)

Joanna ~ Congratulations on the house purchase! How exciting! I think this is a fantastic challenge, too. Maybe we can all save just a little bit of money? :-)
