Hello, and welcome to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of Catholic bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other. To participate, go to your blog and create a post titled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. In it, discuss and link to your posts for the week--whether they deal with theology, Catholic living or cute Catholic kids. I'm mostly a book blogger so my posts are generally book reviews, some Catholic, some not. Make sure that post links back here; some folks are forgetting that! Once you publish it, come back here and leave a link below.
We also have a yahoogroup; signing up for it will get you one weekly reminder to post. Click here to sign up.
As noted in this week's email, starting next week (so everyone has time to prepare) I'm adding a new feature to Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival. Along with linking us to whatever you've written about during the week, Sunday Snippets will now include a question of the week. It will be listed in the email and on the host post. However, since I know a lot of you like to pre-write your posts, the email will include next week's question and if you look up at the page listing under the header picture on my blog, you'll see a link for the page with Sunday Snippets Questions of the Week. I have questions there to last the rest of the year, along with a link to a Google Form where you can submit questions for the future. I'm not going to require you to answer the question in order to participate but I thought it would be fun to get everyone's take on the same subject during the same week. I tried to keep the questions easy but somewhat related to faith. You can click here to submit a question.
Next week's question: Introduce yourself. Some of us have been participating for a long time; others are relative newcomers. Take a minute and briefly tell us about yourself and your blog.
So, on to my Sunday Snippets. I don't have any Catholic posts per se this week, but here is what I did write about:
- The Cooked Seed is a memoir by a Chinese-American author
- Just Joe is a sweet free romance
- Rose Harbor in Bloom is the next installment in Debbie Macomber's new series.
- The Outer Edge of Heaven is Mormon fiction, which was sort of interesting.
- I participated in the Book Blogger Hop which discussed negative reviews.
- In Seven Quick Takes I talked about the end of summer.
- I shared Tyndale's reward program--if you want free stuff, please click on the link and join; it helps both of us.
