W…W…W…Wednesdays – September 29, 2010

W…W…W…Wednesdays is a weekly meme hosted by Should Be Reading

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

* What are you currently reading?
* What did you recently finish reading?
* What do you think you’ll read next?

What are you currently reading? I just started Alice Munro’s The View from Castle Rock which is sort of a family history told in short stories. I am not a fan of short stories, as many of you know, but Munro is the foremost short story artist to come out of Canada. I have been meaning to give her a go for a long time, so I am putting aside my feelings about short stories to pay her the respect she deserves.

What did you recently finish reading? Last night I finished The Golden Mean by Annabel Lyon which was truly wonderful. I am hoping to get a review up later this week. I also “finished” (quite happily) The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon earlier this week.

What do you think you’ll read next? Well, Dewey’s 24hr read-a-thon is sneaking up on us quite quickly and I have committed to taking part in that. I have a few books set aside for it and I don’t want to let the cat out of the bag on what they are. So this will have to remain a mystery for this week.

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.

    Haven’t heard of any of these books – have to look into them.

    Here’s my WWW for this week.

    Like Kristin I haven’t heard of these books either, therefore, I am looking forward to your review.

    I’m going to do Dewey’s Read-a-thon too! I’m getting excited! I’ve got a stack of quick reads all ready to go for it, but you just never know what you’ll be in the mood for!

    My WWW is here if you’d like to drop by. 🙂

    I’ve heard a lot about The Angel’s Game. I’m tempted to give it a try.
