There are a few more things that I should mention. I meant to put this on my post for yesterday.

Bookworms Carnival

Dewey’s Bookworms Carnival seems to be floundering, with few entries for the last few carnivals. I know it’s hard to remember the deadlines without out Dewey’s wonderful blog to remind us, and that’s why a group of people set up the Bookworms Carnival page. Make sure you are subscribed! They often give a “deadline approaching” reminder, and they do have a list of all the upcoming carnivals, so you can write the deadlines on your own “blogging” calendar. Keep submitting to the carnivals! I’d hate for Dewey’s Carnival to wither away for lack of interest. You can also browse past editions through the “editions” category.

This last month I participated in the Bookworms carnival on Parenting at Quiverfull Family with my post on Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn.

According to the Bookworms Carnival page, the upcoming carnivals are these:

The 27th edition will be hosted by Julia at Book News and Reviews, where the theme is Murder Mysteries.  Julia will be taking submissions until April 10th at juliascottdouglas at gmail dot com.

The 28th edition will be hosted by the Book Club Classics, where the theme is Pulitzer Prize Winners.  The Book Club Classics will be taking submissions until April 24th at email: kgalles at msn dot com.

Get your book reviews in!


I’ve been awarded the Sisterhood Award twice this month, first from Amanda at ramblings of a hopeful artist (also blogs at 5-Squared) and then from Chris at Book-a-Rama. Awww, thank you, sisters!

  1. I’m going to have to check out that carnival thing. I never understood how it works. Maybe if I subscribe for awhile, i’ll figure it out.

  2. Amanda, for the Bookworms Carnival, the main blog has reminders on deadlines and subjects, and then twice a month a different blogger heads a topical carnival. The one with the deadline of yesterday was “Book Awards.” And then the upcoming ones are Murder Mysteries and then Pulitzer Winners. For each carnival, you send an email with a link to your post to the assigned blogger, who then sets up a post with links to everyone’s submissions.

    Other carnivals aren’t topical– they are just “submit your favorite post.” I haven’t gotten in to any of them.

    It really worked well when Dewey was around because it seemed everyone read her blog and got the reminders. It seems the separate blog isn’t as well read because the last few carnivals had few submissions. It’s hard to remember without the reminders. You may be able to browse some past carnivals on the site to see how they look (except with the interface they are hard to find…).

  3. Congratulations on your awards, Rebecca!

    It’s awesome of you to plug the Bookworms Carnival, and I’m tempted to do the same sometime. I’d also hate to see it die ๐Ÿ™

  4. I must confess that I was unsure of how the bookworm carnival worked as well, but I have subscribed to the feed and look forward to learning more about it – and perhaps participating at some point in the future.

    I found your blog via Jackie’s award post and I am so glad I did. I look forward to reading more of your posts.

  5. Nymeth, thanks. I think I need to post reminders just for myself! For some reason, I think it’s harder to remember now…

    Jackie, Thanks so much! I think it was great to meet new people with that project. I also enjoy your blog.

    Molly, I’m glad to have found your blog too now! Thanks for visiting.
