I Do Say…This is Baaaaaaaaaahd

OK, so I know what parchment is, or at least I thought I did. I know that it’s the stuff my Dad’s birth certificate is printed on, but I had no idea what it was made of…GASP. Thanks to Jackie over at Farm Lane Books Blog, I, and the Pink Sheep, are now all too aware. Let me tell you Jackie, I think the Pink Sheep is going to have a grudge against you for some time to come 😉 Check out this wonderful article on book sizes…and the unfortunate origins of parchment.

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.
