CHALLENGE: Ireland Reading Challenge 2012

Carrie is hosting the Ireland Reading Challenge again for 2012. Now that it is March, and St Patrick's Day is coming up, it may be time to sign up for a small version. I enjoyed the books I read last year. This challenge runs until November 30, 2012 and the levels are:
Shamrock level: 4 books
Luck o’ the Irish level: 6 books
Kiss the Blarney Stone level: 8 books
Ceilidh level: 10+ books

More details at the sign-up page, including some genre reading, and prizes.

I've got a few I'm thinking of:
Sebastian Barry - On Canaan's Side
Tana French - Faithful Place
John Connolly - The Reapers
An Irish Country Christmas - Patrick Taylor
and possibly, left over from last year's list: Kate O'Brien, Marion Keyes, Declan Hughes, or Teacher Man by Frank McCourt

What actually got read: (aiming for 4)
1. On Canaan's Side - Sebastian Barry
2. Faithful Place - Tana French
3. The Forgotten Waltz - Anne Enright
4. The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - John Boyne
