bs-carnival1The October Biblioblog Carnival will be hosted right here at Reading Acts. A “blog carnival” is a collection of links on a particular topic for a given period. I think the idea of a blog carnival first developed out of psychology or sociology blogs, but the first BiblioBlog carnival was Joel Ng at Ebla Logs in March 2005. That blog is not long gone, but you can read an archive of it at Peter Kirby’s Biblioblog Top 50.

I invite you to email me suggested links (plong42 at gmail.com) or a direct message via twitter (@plong42).  What have you read this month that was challenging, simulating, or maybe even a bit strange? This is a good time to promote a less well-known blog you enjoy, or you can send a link to your own work. Sometimes you just need to flog your own blog to get it noticed.

I may or may not use every link sent to me, but I am always grateful for your help. I will try to finish up the carnival while hiding in my office on Halloween, hording all the candy to myself.
