The Carnival of Children's Literature is up at Big A, Little a. The theme is gift books--what books to buy for the holidays, how to choose a book, etc.
The December edition of the Bookworms Carnival is up at A Striped Armchair. The theme is nonfiction.
By the way...
I am hosting the 7th edition of the Bookworms Carnival. I will host it at my blog, Reading with Becky.
The theme for January 2008 is
Best Books of 2007
There are several options. You could create your own "best of" list of books you've read and loved in the past year. You might want to make this a list with notes or commentary. But that isn't a requirement necessarily. Or you could submit a book review of the book you think is THE BEST of the year. Your list can be general or specific. Your focus can be looking at all books or just books about pirates in space fighting spiders. :)
Your "best-of" list can include any book that you read for the first time in the year of 2007. It doesn't have to be just the books with the 2007 release date. Though if that's what you want to do, that's fine too.
The deadline for submission is January 11th.
Submissions for this carnival are by email. Email me at laney_po AT yahoo DOT com. Please use the word Bookworms AND/OR the word Carnival in your subject line. Thank you!
