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:  Do you use facebook?  Do you promote your blog on facebook?  Why or why not?  My Answer:  Yes, I use facebook, and no I don't usually use it to promote my blog.  Most of my friends and family aren't readers and aren't really interested (at least in my opinion) in all the books I read.  I may post when I have a giveaway or if I REALLY love a book but I read facebook to learn about people and I hide all those game posts and other things that don't tell me what I want to know.  I am part of a facebook group of bloggers from my alma mater and I'll promote my blog there, but that's the reason for the page.  

Hope you all had fun last weekend without me.  I was on a Girl Scout trip to Savannah Georgia.  Here are some pictures:

Luxury transportation (yes it is a school bus but it was air conditioned)
I got a lot of reading done on the bus and I've spent today blogging so I have quite a few posts for you:


  1. An air conditioned bus IS a luxury. :)

    1. It beats non-ac'd. Years ago they use to charter a motor coach for trips like this. Then one year the price increased quite a bit and the Boy Scout leader, who is a mechanic, said that for half the price of chartering the bus he could put an ac in the bus we had, so that's what he did. Having that bus and him for a driver saves us a bundle on these trips.

  2. Thank you RAnn for hosting our snippets each week.

    Facebook raises feelings in me akin to those I feel with those family newsletters that come instead of holy card at Christmas. I am probably intimidated by all the fun everybody is having, or their successes, and hordes of friends. My guess is that I have some unexplored, deep down issues and feelings of inadequacy. I am praying about it..

  3. Thanks for hosting, RAnn!

  4. RAnn, thanks for hosting. Yes, I do FB! It is one way to keep track of my large family and I promote my blog and website.

  5. Fun trip! I have FB, but I don't promote my blog there. Like you, some of my friends are readers, some are not. FB is mostly for friends and family. I do promote book reviews on Pinterest.
