Literary Book Hop-March 17th to the 20th

"Maybe you will see me,3/14 to 3/20"

To me the Literary Book Blog Hop is a great international community building  event.    This week I want to be sure that all participants in The Literary Book Blog Hop know about an event I am hosting on my blog.     I know not everyone likes short stories.    (The rules are ultra-simple-just read and post on an Irish Short Story and leave me a comment.   I have a resources page on my blog for ideas and links to read online)

Please consider participating in Irish Short Stories Week-3/14 to 3/20
"Hi, I will be a co-host for the week-I was
born in an Irish Story but I am alive now!"-Carmilla

This week's question for on the literary book blog hop is:

What book would like to read before you  die?

Many years ago I read James Joyce's Ulysses.  I would like to read it again, especially after this week

If you have any questions comments or interest in Irish Short Stories Week, please leave me a comment.

Hi, Mel. I'm participating in Irish Short Stories Week, and I posted on Oscar Wilde's The Nightingale and the Rose. Here's the link:

Thanks for hosting this event. I wouldn't have found The Nightingale and the Rose otherwise. :)

Just finished, and posted about, a wonderful book of short stories (because like potato chips i cannot stop with just one), by a contemporary Irish writer, Claire Keegan. Great stuff! I don't think her work is available online, although she has been published in Granta.
Here's what I said:

James Joyce frightens me!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Ulysses is a great choice. I haven't read it, I of my good friends hosts a Bloomsday event every year. Perhaps I'll start it on your recommendation and with her guidance...

Ulysses is a great choice, but I'm intimidated by the book. I'm just finishing a wonderful book of short stories by Irish writer Mary Lavin. If I can manage to get a post written, I'd love to participate in Irish Stories week...
