cluricaune has passed the torch to me to take over KarmelK's Irish Challenge and I hope I can do my friend proud. Thanks to BOOKWORMINUSALL who provided the link to me for the past rules of this Challenge. They are:

Books about Ireland written by or about Irish people or descendants of the Irish in any country. Maeve Binchy and Nora Roberts come to mind.

Books that are primarily green, white, orange/gold in color or have those color words in the title, subtitle or author's name.

Any Irish place names or items unique to Ireland (shamrock, banshee, leprechaun, etc.) in the title or author's name. If it's reasonable, it works for me. :)

Any type of release is acceptable. Challenge starts March 1st and runs through March 31st (your time).

cluricaune added a rule last year---and I support him totally---if KarmelK checks in at any point, her word automatically out rules us. With that said---a new twist to the Challenge that's easy---books with author names of Robert or Bob and book titles that contain Robert or Bob. Also, KarmelK just had a new granddaughter so any book with Gwen as the author or in the title is great. Red on the cover, in the title or the author's name is also acceptable. I love embedded words so that's a go for me.

I can't afford great prizes but will do something for anyone who participates. And KamelK---we miss you here and love you.




YEEEESSSSSSS!!! : ) Happy to know all of the details got worked out!!! ; ) LOVE the new twist!! ; ) Count me in...and THANK YOU for hosting, Spazcat!!! : )

I'm in
and thanks for noting the Maeve Binchy and Nora Roberts inclusion - I'll go dig their books out of the availables and reserve them for this.


Thank you for hosting spazcat! Cathy Kelly is another Irish author in case anyone has any of her books.

Is she Romance? It would help in searching the Library Friends bookshelf!

Cathy Kelly is more women's fiction, than strictly romance, although romance does play a part in the stories. I find her writing to be similar to Maeve Binchy who was one of my favourites. So sad that Maeve has passed away. I have often found Cathy's books at used book sales in the fiction section.


All 3 of you are very familiar "faces" to me! :)


Just released most of my availables, but since I have all of March to come up with something..


Thanks for joining in! I only have a few myself but wanted to keep the Challenge going for KarmelK.


1. Into the Woods ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14385995/ ), wild release, multiple challenges, photo. [The cover's green and white, and the story's set in Ireland, featuring detectives on the Dublin Murder Squad.]


The Stone House is beautiful, Gory! Is it a landmark?


The Stone House is beautiful, Gory! Is it a landmark?

It's certainly well-known in the area, but I don't think it's considered a historical landmark. It was built in around 1910 as part of the development of the park.

Great releases! I so wish an OBCZ would be active in my city---for now, I'll settle for the Laundry Basket Libraries that have popped up the past few years. Fingers crossed for a catch! :)


Laundry Basket Libraries

Haven't heard of them. Do tell.


Laundry Basket Libraries

Haven't heard of them. Do tell.

A Laundry Basket Library is a crude version of a Little Free Library, I'm guessing, from the photos posted here. Actual laundry baskets have been placed at the front doors of various businesses around town and the note above them reads "Take a Book, Leave a Book." One of the LBL's I leave books at is a small restaurant that has set up an extra table to accommodate the extra books and magazines that people drop off. Not as cute as a LFL, but they're functional.

1 - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13469625/ Select Editions: An IRISH Country Courtship / This Time Together


Books about Ireland written by or about Irish people or descendants of the Irish in any country. Maeve Binchy and Nora Roberts come to mind.

Does this mean any book by Nora Roberts, etc, works, or only those about Ireland or Irish people? Thanks.


KarmelK always accepted any book by Nora Roberts because Nora has Irish lineage. If the author is Irish or is a descendant, they count (I check Wikipedia). If a book has an Ireland theme it counts. Any mention of Irish counts. And because I added the names Robert and Bob to the Challenge, in honor of KK's husband, nora ROBERTs works all around.

...via Jacquie Lawson, for those who might be interested:


I've loved those animated cards for years now, and the newest Irish-themed one is really lovely - not just for the adorable dogs and cats scampering through the countryside but for the informational slide-show available at the end, that describes each of the locations shown in the animation.


I didn't go through all of them, but the cards I looked at are beautiful! Thanks so much for passing it on, Gory!
