Literature Carnival, Ninth Edition


I want to thank all of you for your submissions to this week’s carnival. A reminder that the Tenth Edition of the Literature Carnival will fall one day before William Shakespeare’s birthday. For the April 22 edition of the Carnival, please submit your Shakespeare-themed posts, and let me know if submissions received well before then should be saved for the Shakespeare edition.

In book reviews this week, we have Grrlscientist’s thoughts on Darwin: Discovering the Tree of Life at Living the Scientific Life, Jonathan Dresner’s review of The Apprentice by Lewis Libby at Frog in a Well and my own review of Lev Grossman’s Codex here at Much Madness is Divinest Sense.

Did you know the Internet had a patron saint?  Check out Sylvia’s series on St. Isidore of Seville starting with “Isidori Hispalensis Episcopi: Patron of the Internet” at Bookworm.

Tanya Abramovitch talks about her weekend reading in “Weight” over at the Library Girl.

Edward Champion reports that Joyce Carol Oates is “hang[ing] up the boots and giv[ing her] wrists a rest” at Edward Champion’s Return of the Reluctant.

I couldn’t resist posting this link to Austen Blog’s outing of Miami Heat guard Dwayne Wade as a Friend of Jane.  I want a poster for my classroom.

Just a reminder that the LitBlog Co-Op will be announcing the Spring 2006 Read This! selection a week from today.  Be sure to stop by and check it out.

David Weinberger of Joho the Blog is wondering how we sort our books.  Do piles count as sorting, I wonder?

Lucy Tartan takes a look at the divergent reading habits of men and women at Sorrow at Sills Bend.

OK, folks, see you in two weeks with the tenth edition devoted to William Shakespeare. Don’t forget to make your submissions for inclusion.

  1. I have just bravely resolved to start a literature carnival and am pleasantly surprised to know you have already done the heavy lifting for us all… thank you!

    this is also to let you know that i have made an erroneaous submitssion — i was not aware when making it that we have a Shakespeare theme. (I should have guessed). So I am going to resubmit a Shakespeare post!

    Thank you again!
