While I was in Ireland I was thinking what to bring back as a souvenir. I usually try to pick something I interact with often to remind me about my travels, things like jewelry, fountain pens, bags and, of course, books. As I was never very well read in Irish fiction I decided there’s no better time and place than Ireland to buy books, killing two birds with on stone – catching up on my knowledge of Irish fiction and getting something that will make me remember this fantastic vacation.
Here’s what I got, as you can see it’s seven books, and this is the number I usually read per month, so I’m wondering if not to make October my personal Irish reading month.
Have you read those books? Did you like them? Which one should I start with in October?
What do you bring as souvenirs from your vacation?
I finally also downloaded my photos from Ireland to my laptop and started weeding through them, 200 down yesterday, 1480 to go through.
