Awesome Authors Challenge 2011

Another challenge to add to my growing list. The Awesome Authors Challenge is being hosted by Alyce at At Home With Books. The challenge is pretty straightforward, read authors that have been recommended to you or you have heard raved about that you haven’t yet read. I’m aiming for the top level, “Blinded by Overexposure to Awesomeness” which commits me to reading ten or more books. That shouldn’t be a problem, all my reading goals for this year aim for me to read new-to-me authors, especially the ones that have been recommended for their awesomeness. Head over to At Home With Books to sign-up.


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.
