2011 Global Reading Challenge

Get ready for it!

2011 Global Reading Challenge

Hosted by Dorte at DJ’s Krimiblog

This one is dead easy. Dorte is offering three levels in which participants can choose to read either one, two or three books set in each N. America, S. America, Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe and a Seventh Place which you can choose on your own. I am going to try for the Expert Challenge and committing to reading three books for each continent. I am not sure yet, but for my Seventh Place, I will probably choose the Middle East as I have been becoming increasingly interested in Arabic Literature.


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.
