The 2010 Ireland Reading Challenge was hosted by Carrie at Books and Movies. I like to read Irish authors and books set in Ireland so I knew this challenge was for me and signed up at the top level - Kiss the Blarney Stone (6 books)! This was one of the first challenges I finished but I was holding out on the wrap up post because I wanted to include a photo of me kissing the blarney stone from a childhood trip to Ireland but I kept forgetting to get the snapshot from my Mom. So I have decided to include a few photos from my recent trips to Ireland at the bottom of the post.
Carrie will be hosting this challenge again in 2011 so stay tuned to her blog!
Here is what I read for the challenge (titles link to my reviews):
Carey, Alice: I'll Know It When I See It
Delaney, Frank: Venetia Kelly's Traveling Show
McPartlin, Anna: Alexandra, Gone
O'Carroll, Brendan: Agnes Browne Trilogy (The Mammy, The Chissellers, The Granny)
