Today’s St. Patrick’s Day post is in keeping with two of the main tenets of the occasion:
2. All things green.
We’ve all done it—walked into a bookstore or library and asked that most infuriating of questions. You know, the one that makes booksellers want to commit hara-kiri in the biography section. The one that makes librarians glare tiny daggers at you over horn-rimmed glasses by the reference desk.
“Excuse me. Can you help me find a book? I don’t know the title, and I can’t for the life of me remember who wrote it, but I know for a fact that the colour is green.”
Cue rage-induced eye twitch.
In celebration of St. Paddy’s day, we are not only paying tribute to those brave souls who routinely field such questions, but also toasting to fellowship with this reading list, featuring books from PQL and our indie publisher friends, all of which happen to sport a jaunty green cover.
There you have it. It may not be that easy being green, but these books do so in style. Be sure to check out our recommendations and check back soon for more awesome happenings at the Quill. Happy St. Patricks Day everyone!
