March: A Month of Paddys (Paddies?)

As our first two reads/discussions come to a close (and keep tossing topics for discussion for either VS or Pi if you feel inspired!) it's time to gear up for March. I'd like to nominate Easter Rising: An Irish American Coming Up from Under by Michael Patrick MacDonald. I read All Souls, his first memoir, a few years back and quite enjoyed it, well, as much as one can enjoy a true story about organized crime, racism, rioting, poverty, and the horrendous deaths of four of his siblings. I watched The Departed this weekend and the experience bumped Easter Rising to the top of my book queue.

Discussion will follow Paddy's day by a bit... most likely the 29th of March.

Anyone else interested in joining me?

That sounds interesting. Unfortunately I'm going to have to pass for March as I'm doing no less than three blog book tours I have to read for as well as a couple of reviews for The Opinionated Parent that require reading. I'm thinking I won't have much extra reading time. I'm also thinking I might have to fake some of them, because who the hell can read that much with a ten month old?

I'll second the nomination -- sounds good to me

I'm so out. Unfortunately.

We're moving at the end of the month and OHMYEFFINGGOD is there a lot to do before then. I'm running on coffee and red wine right now. (Not necessarily at the same time.)

Can't wait for Special Topics in Calamaty Physics though. How 'bout mid April?

Crap. I'm out for March. I am way behind for my RL book club. (We're reading "The Birth House" by Ami McKay and it's really good so far).
