If I Could Only Keep 10 Irish Books

I’ve seen the concept of “if I could only keep 10 books” on Book Tube, but I wanted to put my own spin on it.

So, I came up with 10 books by Irish authors I wouldn’t part with, if I had to get rid of every other book I own. This is a pretty strong endorsement for some of my favourite books from across my life.

Have you read any of these? Would you also keep them and only them, or is there another book on your list instead?

Great Books Set on Each Continent

This post is part of Six for Sunday, run by Steph from A Little But a Lot.

In a time when travelling isn’t super easy, the only way to see the world is through books and movies. There are some amazing settings out there, and books are the best way to see the world around us from the comfort and safety of our armchairs.

With that in mind, I want to give you some suggestions to help travel the world a little. If there’s somewhere you’re dying to see, these books might just help you out.
