It’s Begorrathon Time!


Irish Reading Month , where we celebrate Irish books and culture, has begun over at Cathy’s 746 Books! I’ve picked my books by Irish authors off the shelves and stacked them in my reading room.

  • Felicia’s Journey by William Trevor
  • The Fields by Kevin Maher
  • My Dream of You by Nuala O’Faolain
  • The Heat of the Day by Elizabeth Bowen
  • The House in Paris by Elizabeth Bowen
  • Mary Lavelle by Kate O’Brien
  • Mad Puppetstown by Molly Keane (M.J. Farrell)
  • Loving and Giving by Molly Keane
  • The Gathering by Anne Enright
  • The Coconut Killings, Season of Snows and Sins, Black Widower by Patricia Moyes
  • The Death of a Joyce Scholar, The Death of an Irish Sea Wolf, The Death of an Irish Lover by Bartholomew Gill
  • The Likeness, In the Woods, The Faithful Place by Tana French
  • Tis and Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt

I’ve got a few more on the shelves that I didn’t pull off this is enough to choose from for a month. I’ll be lucky to get four read! I’ve got a couple Irish recipes I’m going to try too.

A friend and I are in the process of planning a trip to Ireland hopefully this September! We are going to go with a tour group. I’m excited! We need to hustle and get it booked or they’ll all be full!

Won’t you join us in reading Ireland the month of March! Click the link above!

    • Thanks for stopping over, Michael! I’ve had the McCourt books for years so I really want to get one read this month. Just finishing up William Trevor and I think I’ll dive into Elizabeth Bowen next.

  2. Angela Ashes is all about the author’s life in Ireland and Tis is about his life when he comes to America. If I were choosing, I would go with Angela’s Ashes. What a great list!
