Happy St. Patty's Day!

To help you celebrate St. Patrick's day, how about reading a book about Ireland or by an Irish author? Here are some favorites:

Airman by Eoin Colfer
Black Potatoes : the Story of the Great Irish Famine, 1845-1850 by Susan Campbell Bartoletti.
Hush : an Irish Princess' Tale by Donna Jo Napoli
The New Policeman by Kate Thompson
Nory Ryan's Song by Patricia Reilly Giff
Over the Water by Maude Casey
The Pirate Queen by Emily Arnold McCully

So, pick a book Agus cuid eile an lae dhuit fein. (That is, "And the rest of the day to yourself.")
