The Crazy Book Swap

Wallace over at Unputdownables has issued a new and very exciting challenge. She is having people sign up to send one of their own unputdownable reads to someone else for review and in return receive and review someone else’s unputdownable read. I know…scary right? Committing to review a book without knowing anything about it. That’s exactly why I signed up. I want to put myself out there and expose myself to new kinds of fiction; I want to step out of my comfort zone. Head over to The Crazy Book Swap and sign up to take part.


About Robbie

Hi there, my name is Robbie Burns (no,really, that’s my name…hold the haggis jokes please) and I would like to welcome you to the Pink Sheep Cafe. I started this blog as a means of discussing books and all things literary in light of my perpetual isolation. At the time I began writing, I was living in Split, Croatia. There wasn’t much here in the way of English book clubs and I couldn’t work, so I badly needed something to help me bide my time. My partner and I have since left Croatia and returned to Canada to live in Yellowknife in the Northwest Territories. When we first moved back here, my blog writing sort of fell by the wayside, but now I seem to be back on track. I try to read and review a little bit of everything here; I think everyone can find something to their liking here. I find myself tending more towards more literary reads these days, but I also enjoy a lot of YA and children’s fiction. One of my ongoing goals is to work my way through all of the Nobel Laureates. My two most favorite authors are Timothy Findley and Halldor Laxness.

    Hi Rob,

    The question is – what book are you submitting?

    • Robbie says:

      Oh I know exactly which book I am submitting, but it’s got to be a surprise for my swap partner. Rest assured, my partner will not be disappointed.

  2. Kim Perkins says:

    Oooh, I’ll bet.

    I hope you share with the rest of us once you’re able.

  3. Robbie says:

    I most certainly will. I will also make sure to let you know as soon as I get the other book in the mail.
