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!

Oh I think I can do this one too!
You are right...these are addicting!

Jo-Jo ~ But like my husband says, there are way worse things to be addicted to. :-) I hope you join in!


joanna said...

That's what Joe says too! That this isn't the worst addiction I could have. :-)
I'm doing this one too. I'd better start signing up for these challenges, otherwise all my December posts will be sign-ups!

Lezlie said...

Joanna ~ Me, too. There are a few more I'm thinking about. The 2009 TBR should be coming up soon, the Themed Challege, Art History Challege . . . Yup. So much for restraint. :-)

Hey, I signed up too...started rattling the brain for ideas. A good excuse to our favorite bookshops.

Lezlie said...

Brenda ~ Cool! I was wandering the library early today taking metal notes on possibilities for this one.

It's a cool challenge! But my TBR pile is just too big! If I can find some already in my TBR pile... maybe ;)

Lezlie said...

Monica ~ I hear you on the TBR pile. I just have no self-control. :-)
