Sunday Snippets-- A Catholic Carnival

Well, once again it is time to hop over to RAnn's blog for Sunday Snippets, where Catholic bloggers like me share our posts.  I've discovered some wonderful blogs here.   How about sharing yours?


Books Read In The Past Week

Books read for the first time are marked with  a #

Books, (except Sunday books) are grouped by author, and not necessarily in the order read.


Sunday books

"The Story of the Trapp Family Singers"

Weekday Books

"Class-ified Information:  Yaffa"
"Class-ified Information: Baila"

[children's/young teen fiction, Jewish, series]
These books are companion volumes, each covering
the same time period (a year in 8th grade) from the
first-person viewpoint of a different girl in the class,
and can be read in any order.  Certain incidents which
take center stage in some books may get just a brief mention, or none at all, in others.
Also, each girl's home life is different, of course.
