The Jewish Book Carnival is your chance to participate in People of the Books.
The Carnival was started by Heidi Estrin and me, to promote blogs that cover Jewish books. It's an effort to build community, so that blog writers and readers can share posts on Jewish books. We'll read each others' blogs, support each other and promote each other- and Jewish books- throughout the blogosphere.Every month on the 15th, someone will host the roundup;
this month (and next month) it will be here on the AJL blog. After that, we'd love to know if you would be interested in hosting the carnival on your blog!The Jewish Book Carnival has a GoodReads page
; we'd love for you to join, to keep up with Carnival news, join in our discussions and share what you're reading and writing about.We are also running a poll
to choose a name for the Carnival; the voting is open until August 31
