Jewish Book Carnival

Today is the Jewish Book Carnival!


This month the Carnival is hosted by The Jewish Publication Society here.

The carnival was started by Heidi Estrin and Marie Cloutier to build community among bloggers and blogs who feature Jewish books. It will run every month on the 15th.

We have hosts lined up through the end of 2010 but if you are interested in hosting the carnival on your blog sometime in 2011, feel free to contact Marie at mcloutier@jewishlibraries.org.

Click here for the full schedule and list of participating blogs.

Feel free to download and save the logo, and use it on your blog posts or sidebar. Please do not link directly to the picture.

The Jewish Book Carnival has a GoodReads page, where we host discussions and more. Whether or not you’re participating, we hope you’ll stop by, join and take part!

For now, head over to the Jewish Publication Society and check out this month's collection of great links.

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 @ jewishlibraries.org.
