Jewish Book Carnival!

Welcome to the second monthly Jewish Book Carnival!

The Jewish Book Carnival is your chance to participate in People of the Books.

The Carnival was started by Heidi Estrin and me, to promote blogs that cover Jewish books. It’s an effort to build community, so that blog writers and readers can share posts on Jewish books. We’ll read each others’ blogs, support each other and promote each other- and Jewish books-  throughout the blogosphere.

Every month on the 15th, someone will host the roundup; in September, you can find it at the Jewish Publication Society.

On the Carnival's home page you can find a list of participants, links to past carnivals and other information.

The Jewish Book Carnival has a GoodReads page; we’d love for you to join, to keep up with Carnival news, join in our discussions and share what you’re reading and writing about.

This month we have several new participants- and lots of great links.

We hope you have time to visit and comment on lots of the featured blogs.

And if you'd like to join the Carnival or host, please email me at mcloutier @
