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!

2009 1% Well-Read Challenge

Yay! With all the classics I'm reading this year for my "classes", this should be a breeze! There are three choices for participation, and I'm going for Option Three: Thirteen books from the combined lists of the original and 2008 editions of 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die. So, will that make me 1.3% well-read? :-) I won't make my list now but will fill it in as I go along.

Complete: 13/13 as of Aug. 10, 2009

1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
2. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
3. The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene
4. Survival In Auschwitz by Primo Levi (Original title: If This Is A Man)
5. Choke by Chuck Palahniuk
6. American Pastoral by Philip Roth
7. The Golden Ass by Lucius Apuleius
8. Waiting for the Barbarians by J.M. Coetzee
