Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I found a St. Patrick’s Day book tag made by two bloggers – Emily at Embuhleeliest and Shivii at Brown Eyed Musings. You can find them at the following links:
End of the rainbow: What book did you have a hard time tracking down a copy of?
Early Ripening: American Women’s Poetry Now by Marge Piercy. It took me at least 25 years to find a copy. Trust me I looked but it was more difficult before book stores were online. My friend was looking for it so I said I would keep an eye out. So I did. She thought I gave up after a short time. However, I never gave up the search.
Pot of gold: When you found that book, was it worth the quest?
This year, I finally found an available copy. The search it over finally. I haven’t told my friend yet but I will soon.
Celebrating a rich heritage: Name a book that contained a well-developed culture
Shamrock Shakes: what’s your favorite food to snack on while reading?
Popcorn? Cookies maybe?
Leprechaun: do you own a rare/collector’s copy of a book?
I own a first edition of Beloved. Unfortunately, I have misplaced it.
Four Leaf Clover: Name a book you thought would be ‘just another generic book’, but turned out to be something great.
Irish Whiskey: what’s your favorite tradition of St. Patty’s Day?
Leaving work early so I can go to the bar ASAP. Then acquiring green necklaces with flashing shamrocks at various bars. I haven’t done this tradition in many years. I broke my ankle the last time. The ER nurses didn’t appreciate my flashing shamrocks.
