  1. This is an awesome event for St Patrick's day.

    Purely coincidently I suppose I have chosen well for my own reading for St. Patricks's Day. I am currently reading a couple of James Joyce's books and will likely be still reading him through St. Patricks Day.

  2. That is an awesome list of authors. Sharing free books throughout the city is a great idea.

  3. What a great event! Wish I could be there, my mom was part Irish.

  4. What an amazing and novel way to celebrate, I think this is a great idea that should be taken up no matter what day we may be celebrating.
