The New Home

With the passing of our late friend, Dewey at the Hidden Side of the Leaf, some of us fellow book bloggers have gotten together to continue on with Dewey’s Bookworms Carnival.  Dewey did an amazing job with all the projects she was handling and we can only hope to continue to do as great of a job.

The carnival may experience some hiccups while we try and pick up where Dewey left off, but the carnival is continuing on without us, so make sure you check out the next couple of stops.

The aim of the Bookworms Carnival is to build the community of book bloggers. You don’t have to have a books blog to participate, though; bloggers are welcome to submit any post relevant to the current theme from any blog.

The Bookworms Carnival is held twice a month.

With the passing of our fellow book lover, we are continuing Dewey’s (the Hidden Side of a Leaf) work with the Bookworms Carnival and can only hope that we do as great of a job as she did.

The current carnival is going to be posted any day at Literary Escapism who has a topic of Historical Fiction (reviews can still be submitted to myjaxon AT gmail DOT com).

The next carnival is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.  The deadline for submission is December 26, 2008 and she has a theme of guilty pleasures going.  In order to submit a post, email: woodbear97 at yahoo dot com.
