Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival
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. 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.
Question of the week: Yes, we are back to questions of the week. If you check the tab on top you'll see that I have drafted questions for the rest of the year and given credit to those who inspired them. This week's question: Where do you get your Catholic reading material? Church library? Public Library? Secular bookstore? Catholic bookstore? Do you want to give a shout-out to a particular store? (inspired by Rochelle)
I've got a cold and it is miserably cold here (froze last two nights) so I'm spending this weekend at home. I don't want to give this crud to my Dad and I have no desire to run the streets. For the last few years I've gotten my Catholic reading material in the mail on on my Kindle. There are some advantages to being a book blogger and free books are the main one. Two bookstores that used to have blogger programs were Catholic Company and Aquinas and More. Neither blogger program is operating now, from what I can tell. NetGalley usually has books from Ave Maria Press. If you are a blogger and want to review the books on your blog, register with NetGalley and request them. Blogging for Books carries books from Image Books.
Only one post for me; a blog tour of a Christian novel. I did post several comments in response to an article in our local paper. I'm ruthjoec.
