Irish Country Series Books GIVEAWAY!





On January 7, I received a very exciting and most unexpected email from someone on behalf of Forge Books, the publishers of the Irish Country series by Patrick Taylor. She offered to send me a copy of the latest book, An Irish Country Girl, AND she said that the company was willing to give away ALL four books in the series if I wanted to offer a drawing on my blog! Here are her words:

We will send the entire series of four titles: An Irish Country Doctor, An Irish Country Village, An Irish Country Christmas, and An Irish Country Girl. An Irish Country Girl will be hardcover, as it was just released and is only available in that format, and the rest of the books could be either trade paperback or hardcover, depending on what the publisher has available on their end.
We can also send those from our end, so when you have a winner's address (within the U.S. or Canada only please), just send it along and we'll make sure to get them out!

So there you have it! I'm thrilled to be able to offer this fantastic giveaway. I've written about the first three in the series here and here and here. I've recently finished An Irish Country Girl and will write a book report soon on this wonderful book.

If you would like to be included in the drawing which will be held on Friday, January 29, please leave a comment ON THIS POST today through Thursday. Please do note above that the publisher will ship ONLY to the US or Canada. The four books will go as a set to one person.

  7. Oh Nan, what an opportunity. Our library has An Irish Country Doctor which I just finished reading because of your review. Unfortunately our library has no more of the series. I would love to win any of the others to read. Please count me in for the drawing.

    P.S. I like your new header photo. You do have the snow. Wow.

  15. Please enter me into the contest. I saw the latest book at the library last week and decided to refrain from picking it up in favor of reading the series in order since you'd raved about all three thus far.

  31. Dear Nan,
    What a surprise for you and even more so for your readers! I have been on an Irish roll this past month and would love to take a trip to Ireland. These books might just put me over the edge in decision-making. I recently acquired an aran wool sweater made in Cork, Ireland, at a used shop. I was so delighted!
    Please include me in your draw and thank you so much!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
