The February Jewish Book Carnival, hosted by Yael Shahar at A Damaged Mirror, is up! Go take a look at all of the links!

The links are varied, from book reviews for adult reading to book reviews of children’s books. There is a link to a free three-part discussion series, and also two links to interviews with authors.

Thank you for including my link! Thank you for hosting!

Ostend: Stefan Zweig, Joseph Roth, and the Summer Before the Dark, sounds like a fascinating read.

I enjoyed reading about ‘Hummus in Hanoi‘!
