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!

Short Story: A WORN PATH

by Eudora Welty

A poor, elderly black woman endures various hardships on a trip into town.

Once I came to understand why the woman was making her difficult trip, I had to go back and skim the story again. Her little battles with natural elements, her encounter with the hunter, even her very name, Phoenix Jackson, took on new meaning. Under certain circumstances, even the smallest of deeds become acts of heroism.

You can read "A Worn Path" here.

This sounds really good. I just bookmarked it to print. Hubby is sleeping now and the printer may wake him. I don't like to read more then a page on my computer.

Teddy Rose ~ I don't like reading on the computer either. It makes my eyes tired.
