2011 in TBR Titles

I’ve swiped this from Margaret at BooksPlease who stole it from Margot at Confessions of a Mystery Novelist. As I understand it, you can fill this in any way you see fit. I’ve chosen to use titles that are on my TBR pile for 2011.

I spent my New Year’s Eve: Telling Tales (ed. Nadine Gordimer)

I’ve made a resolution to: Murder in the Cathedral (T.S. Eliot)

I plan to quit my habit of: Greed (Elfriede Jelinek)

I hope I’ll get to visit: The City of Dreaming Books (Walter Moers)

One project I didn’t finish last year but want to finish this year is: One Hundred Years of Silence (Gabriel Garcia Marquez)

I want to learn: Humboldt’s Gift (Saul Bellow)

I’m not looking forward to: One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovish (Alexander Solzhenitsyn)

My biggest dream for the year is: Too Much Happiness (Alice Munro)

I hope I don’t end up: The Good Terrorist (Doris Lessing)

I’ll probably spend a lot of time: Mudbound (Hillary Jordan)


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.

    Very cute. It reminds me of those old signs we used to make in high school where we would glue candy bars onto it to make strategic sentences. Good luck with you list.

    All I can say is – I’m staying away from Cathedrals!
