BookFace: In celebrating St Patrick's Day

IT IS VERY RARE TO FIND A FREE EBOOK FROM AMAZON WEBSITE WHEN YOU ARE living in developing countries especially in Asia and the Pacific region. Excluding the classics, majority of free ebooks offered for a limited period are only accessible to UK, US, Canada and Australia residents both in and sites.

But few hours ago, I found out that this book is also free for download in Asia and the Pacific region. It might be a good read in time for St. Patrick's Day celebration around the world on the 17th March (that's tomorrow).

Synopsis: Forget about shamrocks, leprechauns, and all that blarney, 101 Things You Didn't Know About Irish History dispels the myths and tells the true stories of the Irish. Inside, you'll learn about about: Lives of the ancient Celts until the British invasions; Famous Irish including Michael Collins, Charles Parnell-and Bono!; The Potato Famine and Immigration (were there really gangs of New York?); Irish music and dance; Folklore, faeries, and leprechauns. Complete with an Irish language primer and pronunciation guide, 101 Things You Didn't Know About Irish History is an informative reference for anyone who loves the Irish! The author is Thomas Turner, Ph.D., a professor of history at Bridgewater State College, in Bridgewater, Massachusetts. The ebook contains 256 pages. (Source - Amazon website).
