It's Jewish Book Carnival Time!

This month I'm privileged to host the Jewish Book Carnival, a roundup of links on Jewish books from across the blogiverse. The Jewish Book Carnival started as an initiative of the Association of Jewish Libraries and now has almost two dozen blogs and bloggers participating each month. 

And they're always looking for new folks to participate and host! If you've written a post recently about a Jewish book, I know you'd be more than welcome to join in! Just let me know & I would be happy to pass your name- and your blog- along to the organizers who'll take it from there and let you know all the details.


Here are this month's links!

Susan at Bagels, Books & Schmooze shares her review of Naomi Ragen's The Saturday Wife.
