Happy Bloomsday!

Some of the celebrations for Bloomsday 2011 have taken an unusually digital slant on Joyce's great novel. David Molloy in the Irish Times reports how computer programmer Rory McCann has taken up Leopold Bloom's challenge to “cross Dublin without passing a pub”. Stranger still is the Ulysses meets Twitter experiment which is posting the entirety of Ulysses in 140-character tweets throughout today. You can follow the blasphemy here!

Alternatively you could keep it traditional and take a look at our selection of titles about Ulysses or even the thing itself available on our shelves.
