Challenge: Ireland Reading Challenge

I used to like Carrie from Books and Movies. I would go to her blog and read great reviews and interviews and guest posts. It was a safe and happy place.

I say was because then I saw this challenge. Sigh. Have I ever mentioned that I like an Irish setting? Have I told you that I have several Ireland-type books in my TBR pile? Did you know that I like reading challenges?

Yeah, well . . . I'm joining up on the Shamrock level. That's two books from now until November 30. Here's what counts for the challenge: "Any book written by an Irish author, set in Ireland, or involving Irish history or Irish characters, counts for the challenge – fiction, non-fiction, poetry, audiobooks, children’s books – all of these apply."

The challenge announcement has been up on Books and Movies since February 1. I saw that Robin of My Two Blessing joined. I finally caved.

I'm sorry. I really am. But I'm addicted to reading challenges, and it makes me feel better about myself to get as many other bloggers addicted as I can. It's a sickness, I know.

On a less silly note, I'm glad you're joining us. :)

I've got the same problem - join lots of challenges but only finish a few!

Good luck with the challenge! That shamrock level looks tempting.

Nise' 2/18/10, 12:14 PM  

Great challenge. I just read two books that would fit right in this challenge.

Serena 2/18/10, 1:22 PM  

you've done it! You've convinced me to join. I had been holding off, but I can't resist any longer!

Julie P. 2/18/10, 2:08 PM  

Two book? I could probably handle that. I'm sure I even have a few sitting around here.

I am thinking I might just be able to squeeze this one in. I do have an obsession with challenges of late and two books shouldn't be too much.

Darlene 2/18/10, 2:40 PM  

lol- Good luck! I'm steering clear of any more challenges.

I am doing this one too - I love Ireland and books set in the country!

So glad Carrie is hosting this one!

Oh man I love books set in Ireland too! This one would be an easy one for me... uh oh may have to sign up as well!

I haven't officially signed up, but I'm sure I'll be joining you. I have several books set in Ireland already on the shelves.

I didnot read this post of yours :P

Heather 2/19/10, 6:04 AM  

Oh dear. You have got to quit joining these awesome challenges, because you make me do it too! I love Ireland, I think it's the Irish in me, and I love to read books about Ireland. I guess I'm going to have to join this one too. Thanks Candace.

I just started reading the Patrick Taylor series so this is very tempting. I can easily do two books. This is the kind of rationale that hooks me in so many challenges. Have fun with the challenge.

Dorte H 2/19/10, 1:13 PM  

And now you think you are making things better by tempting the rest of us, huh? Well, but I am strong - can resist this temptation! - at least for today.

I like stories with Irish settings too. My favorite had been one of Nora Roberts' trilogies. Good luck with this one and happy reading!
