Carrie of Books and Movies is once again hosting the Ireland Reading Challenge.
The challenge is kinda obvious: read Irish-related books and authors. There are 4 levels to choose from, as well as a mini-challenge. Everyone who completes their chosen challenge level and writes at least one review will be entered for the end-of-challenge giveaway (see the mini-challenge below for extra chances). The prize is a lovely copy of For the Love of Ireland: a Literary Companion For Readers and Travelers edited by Susan Cahill.
Shamrock - read 4 Ireland-related books
Luck o' the Irish - read 6 Ireland-related books
Kiss the Blarney Stone - read 8 Ireland-related books
Ceilidh - read 10+ Ireland-related books
Participants can earn extra entries in the giveaway (one per genre) by reading from a variety of books and matching them to the categories listed below.
Non-Fiction - History
Non-Fiction - Memoir or Biography
Non-Fiction - Essays
I'm going to hope for the Luck o' the Irish (6 books) with this challenge!
As titles are read, they will be dated, a link to a review posted, and (finally, since I love to do it!) crossed out.
1. An Irish Famine: an Illustrated History by Helen Litton
2. An Irish History of Civilization (volume 2) by Donald Harman Akenson
