With the Easter weekend upon us, I thought it would be a good time to take a look at some interesting reading on the web and also to highlight some of the more popular recent articles here at Dividend Money.

The following are some links to recent finance carnivals that include a number of interesting and valuable articles. I always learn a few things from reading through these carnivals and I hope that you do as well. Enjoy!
