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.
We were on vacation this week so I got lots of reading and posting done. We went to Gulf Shores for a few days and you can read about it on my Seven Quick Takes post. I spent part of the time reading a book about St. Francis. When we got home I had a cookbook waiting for me. I wrote a review post and a post showing what I made. Got to keep those Catholic families fed. I have two "A" book reviews that published this week: Looking for Me, and Orphan Train. Finally, I reviewed Second Chance Cafe, which is a romance. Generally speaking, I let me readers know the "steam" level of romance novels, and let them use their judgment about whether that level disqualifies the book from consideration. While I'd never suggest anyone violate his or her conscience, Second Chance Cafe is one of the few romances that include steamy scenes that I'd recommend to folks who don't like steamy scenes.
