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!

I'm thinking of doing the Pub Challenge, but I don't want to get in over my head. I'm not making much headway in one of the challenges I'm in now.

Bermudaonion ~ I have a whole bunch I won't be finishing this year. I sure had fun with them though! :-)


joanna said...

Looks to me like you're very restrained! There are so many out there, I'm sure I won't be able to limit myself to just a few! :-)

Lezlie said...

Joanna ~ But I can feel restraint giving way quickly! I'm sure this list end up much larger than I can actually handle, just like 2008. :-)


Kara said...

I have a bunch of challenges I won't be completing this year either - but it was great fun to try.

I am interested in the PUB challenge for next year - and she has another one she is hosting called Countdown that I am thinking of joining.

Lezlie said...

Kara ~ The less disciplined side of me is looking at that one, too. It is becoming clear to me that I will most likely go overboard with challenge plans in 2009. :-)


Brenda @ Its A Beautiful Life said...

I just asked you what you were up to in 2009 -- I should have looked further. You have taken on some fun reading challenges -- all the best!

On your marks, get set...GO!

Lezlie said...

Brenda ~ Many books I've got mentally lined up will fit into three, four or more challenges, so I'm hoping this isn't as nuts as it looks. :-)
