46th Edition: Food Books

Beth Fish Reads has posted the 46th Edition of the Bookworms Carnival and she’s talking about one of my favorite topics – food.  Just like in the food world, there are a variety of different foods available and Beth received that during submissions.  She has reviews for cookbooks, fiction novels and even a review for The Billionaire’s Vinegar by Benjamin Wallace, which involves a bottle of wine.  I didn’t realize there were so many books about food out there, in some form or another, and I can’t wait to get over there and explore all the various links.

If you’re a foodie like I am, then definitely head over and check out what Beth has gleaned for us.  She also introduces us to a whole new weekend meme that looks to be a lot of fun for any foodie out there:

Weekend Cooking is open to anyone who has any kind of food-related post to share: Book (novel, nonfiction) reviews, cookbook reviews, movie reviews, recipes, random thoughts, gadgets, fabulous quotations, photographs. If your post is even vaguely foodie, feel free to grab the button and link up anytime over the weekend. Please link to your specific post, not your blog’s home page. For more information, see the welcome post.

45th Edition: Series

I’m really late in reporting this, but Secret Dreamworld of a Bookholic has posted the 45th Edition of the Bookworms Carnival and Kathrin featured novels that were involved in series.

I had picked series as my theme – and I was refering not to a specific series, but to each and every series you can come up with. In case you’re wondering why I picked this theme: I have been hosting the Series Challenge for the past 3 years and we’re now in the 4th year.

Kathrin was sent a bunch of different reviews – for the first novel, non-first novels and even whole series – so there is a ton to go explore.  If you’re looking for something new or simply want to see what is out there, make sure you stop by and browse through her topics.  I know I will be.

The BWC Needs Some Help

Sorry the site has been so silent lately.  During the holidays, I found out I was pregnant and the last few months have really kicked my butt and put me so behind on everything – both online and personally.  I know it’s not an excuse, that is just my reason.

As such, going by what the last couple months have been like, I don’t think I can do this on my own anymore and Rebecca has already said she’s scaling back her own online stuff.  So the BWC needs help.  I can not guarantee that I’ll be able to give the BWC as much attention as it deserves (which is far more than what it’s receiving right now), so if anyone would like to take over the reigns, please email me at myjaxon at gmail. I am willing to stay on and help where I can, but I just don’t think I can lead this anymore and I would hate to see it die.  Dewey put so much work into this and it is such a great time that it would be a shame if it was to disappear into the ether.

Keeping the BWC up and running wouldn’t take much, but it does need someone who can give it more attention than I have.  Really, each carnival host has the biggest job, but keeping them organized, helping to promote each one and keeping up with them is just as important – and that’s where the BWC staff comes in.  With two or three people behind the scenes, this would be fairly easy to keep up with, but for one lone person, obviously not so easy.

Again, if you are willing to take over the reigns, please email me at myjaxon at gmail (I’ll get it sooner than the BWC email).  If more than one person is interested, I’ll connect you all and we’ll get going.  I won’t be dumping this in anyone’s lap, I will be here to help, so don’t worry about that, please.
