Booking Through Thursday – September 9, 2010

You’ve just dropped your favorite, out-of-print book into a bathtub, ruining it completely…What do you do now?

Answer: Well, my first thought is why on earth was a reading any book, let alone such a valuable one, in the bathtub? That is just a no-no anytime. But, theoretically, I suppose, if I really loved the book that much, I would scour ebay and every last used bookshop on the planet until I found another copy. Not just any copy either…I’m kind of picky about that. It needs to be the same edition that I originally had. But again…why was I reading this in the tub?

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.

  1. You are right. Why should we read a book a book in the bathtub, in the first place?

    Because most everyone else reads in the tub! It’s relaxing! Maybe it’s just guys who don’t do it haha.

    I would never read in the tub…don’t people know that is where most home accidents occur? Why would they want to endanger a book like that?Here’s My BTT.
