Ireland Challenge 2011 Wrap-up and Giveaway


The 2011 Ireland Challenge officially ends next week, and I wanted to give all of you who participated a week’s notice to make sure you qualify for the giveaway.

Here’s what’s up for grabs:


Tipperary by Frank Delaney

In order to qualify, you need to have completed the challenge level you signed up for, as well as have written at least one review of a book you read for the challenge. I’ve tried to keep track, but I know there are a lot of you who have written reviews that didn’t get added to Mr. Linky.

Here’s the list of people who I know have written reviewss – and I’m assuming they’ve finished their challenge:

Sharyla at A Bookish Wonderland
Ibeeg at Polishing Mudballs
Christa at Hooked on Books
Bernadette at Reactions to Reading
Raidergirl at An Adventure in Reading
Jules at Jules’ Reading Challenges
Mel at The Reading Life
Dorte at djskrimiblog
Glenna at Inspirations
Em at C’est la vie!
Michelle at My Life in Books
Ann at Bookwitch
Susan at You Can Never Have Too Many Books
Serena at Savvy Verse & Wit
Bree at All the Books I Can Read
Colleen at Books in the City
Marie at The Boston Bibliophile
Seana at Not New for Long
Lynne at Lynne’s Little Corner of the World
ChrisCross at The Book Trunk
Irene at Irene’s Desk
Laurie at In Laurie’s Mind
Nan at Letters from a Hill Farm
Jedidiah at Book Scorpion’s Lair
Marleen at More Than a Reading Journal
Melissa at Melissa’s Eclectic Bookshelf
Megan at Hardcover Feedback
Susan at Having Fun
Susan Z

I’m sure I’ve missed some of you, so if I did, please let me know in the comments by December 1st that you qualify, and I’ll make sure you’re entered into the giveaway, too. Likewise, if I’m mistaken in thinking that you did complete your challenge, please let me know.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the challenge this year – and that you’ll join me again in 2012. Look for Ireland Challenge 2012 to go up very soon. :)

    Hi Carrie! I did complete the challenge…but only reviewed one of the books as I started my book blog late in the year! This is the one I reviewed:
    1. Irish Fling – Valerie Douglas

    Here are the other 3 that I read:
    2. The Celtic Twilight: Myth, Fantasy, & Lore – William Butler Yeats
    3. An Irish Country Doctor – Patrick Taylor
    4. The Dubliners – Joyce James

    PS. I signed up as Melissa @ Melissa’s Meanderings (my personal blog) but since started my book blog Melissa’s Eclectic Bookshelf!

    I failed at this challenge… :(

  3. I only read two books, so, as I was aiming at the third level, I didn’t complete the challenge. I did enjoy those two books, so thanks for the encouragement your challenge gave me.

      Margaret – okay, thanks for letting me know – and I’m glad you joined us! I’m hosting again for 2012, so if there are more Irish books waiting on your to-read shelves, I hope you’ll join us again. :)
