2013 Ireland Reading Challenge

January 2013 – December 2013
Welcome to the fourth annual Ireland Reading Challenge! This has become one of my favorite blogging experiences – and I hope you will consider joining me.
Here are the guidelines:
~ The challenge runs from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.
~ Any books read for this challenge can also apply to other challenges you are working on.
~ Re-reads are allowed.
~ 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. For specific suggestions, check out the Ireland Challenge Review Database.
~ Choose your commitment level:
Shamrock level: 4 books
Luck o’ the Irish level: 6 books
Kiss the Blarney Stone level: 8 books
Ceilidh level: 10+ books
~ Write up a post indicating that you are participating (feel free to copy the lovely graphic at the top of this post), and then add your challenge post’s link to the Mr. Linky here on the main challenge page.
~ You don’t have to list your books ahead of time – just have fun reading throughout the year.
~ If you write any reviews of your Ireland Challenge reading, please leave a link here on the challenge page.
~ In the past, I have offered a giveaway to participants in this challenge, but since our financial situation is still uncertain, I won’t be able to do that this year.
