Bookworm with Kids I have set up a thread about the Quarterly Irish Play here:
https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/...
if anyone wants to take a look.
I can only send one message per day to all members so I couldn't announce the play thread properly!
Thanks.

Bookworm with Kids We have three books nominated and seconded for the Quarterly Read now. Do you want me to extend the nomination period until March 28th as the April monthly nominations has been extended?

Bookworm with Kids In a very close run poll with only 1 vote separating the three books, The Good People by Hannah Kent has been decided as our Quarterly Irish read for April to June.
I am looking forward to reading it. See you all in the discussions!

Barbara (bdegar) | 4626 comments I read this in January and I find I don't remember books well enough after a few months to discuss them. But I will drop by...
