Welcome to this month’s Jewish Book Carnival, brought to you by the concept, from Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, that “Whoever is able to write a book and does not, it is as if he has lost a child.”
As a writer, I know how much creating a book, creating any text, is like giving birth. And as a reader, how marvellous it is to be handed someone else’s precious and fragile thoughts and words. May we as a people never lose our fascination with books or our drive to keep creating them.
This carnival has been going on continuously since August of 2010. The Jewish Book Carnival is headquartered at the Association of Jewish Libraries’ site here. Stop by for information on past editions or to sign up to host a future issue.
- Last month’s carnival (April 2016) was hosted by The Book of Life.
- Next month’s carnival (June 2016) will be hosted by Barbara Krasner at The Whole Megillah
- And for now, you’re right here… at Adventures in Mamaland!
