Ireland Reading Challenge Completed!

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):
Brooklyn: A Novel
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)
Toibin, Colm: Brooklyn

Gap of Dunloe - Co Kerry
Achill, Co Mayo



  1. This is a fantastic post! I love the photos and I'm also a big fan of Irish books. Thanks for the terrific suggestions, I definitely have some new books to add to my TBR pile.

  2. I've hardly read anything from Ireland! I'm going to have to remedy that soon, though, because one of my challenges requires me to read a book set in Ireland. Your post is a good resource!

  3. Congratulations on completing the challenge! The post announcing next year's challenge is up. :)

  4. Congratulations on completing the challenge! I'm participating next year & can't wait!
