Welcome to the Book Nook At Create With Joy!
Welcome to the Book Nook at Create With Joy – a place where book lovers from around the world gather to share their collective love of books, reading, and all things literary!
We are a family-friendly community of bibliophiles from all backgrounds – readers, bloggers, book reviewers, writers, authors, teachers, librarians, parents, homeschoolers, publicists and publishers – who enjoy sharing what’s new in the world of books, blogging, and publishing!
At each gathering, we’ll share book-related news and fill you in on what’s happening around the blogosphere. We’ll also provide a link where you can share your book-related and literacy-related posts! We ask that your content be suitable for readers of all ages.
Please help the Book Nook grow by adding our beautiful blog button and links to your blog/posts and spreading the word on your social media sites so that others can join the fun!

New And Noteworthy
As we move into Advent and the Christmas season, what’s on your reading and gift-giving list this year? Here are a few recommendations of books that are hot off the presses!
Sacred Holidays Advent Study – He Is
If you want your Christmas season to be less chaotic and more focused on Christ, join me in studying He Is – The Attributes Of God – the newly released Advent Study from Sacred Holidays!
In this daily study, you’ll reflect and journal about 25 different characteristics of God from Sunday, November 27 through Sunday, December 25 and have the opportunity to participate in weekly community discussions. You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in the study with your family and friends as Sacred Holidays publishes 4 coordinated versions of this book (with content written for each specific audience!) You’ll also be helping women in prison learn about God, as 10% of all profits from the pre-orders provide a study for them.
Be sure to order yours today before copies sell out!
All Things New – Kelly Minter
Another Bible Study I’m excited about is All Things New by Kelly Minter. In this 8-week study, Kelly will be leading us through the Apostle Paul’s 2nd letter to the Corinthians! There are many similarities between our culture and Corinth’s, and I cannot wait to see what spiritual truths will come to light in this study.
Here’s what Kelly has to say about All Things New:

Amazon Book Reviewer Boost
Are you a reader or consumer who uses Amazon reviews to help you decide whether or not to read a book or purchase a product? Are you an author who relies on Amazon reviews to help you sell books?
This month, we’d like to invite you to support those members of our community who take their time to provide you with quality reviews on Amazon!
If you are an Amazon book reviewer, you are invited to share your Amazon Book Review profile on this very special link-up.
Then – EVERYONE in our community (but especially those participating in the boost) – is encouraged to FOLLOW our reviewers – to choose one or more reviews that they like – and to indicate that YES, the review was helpful to them!
This will help our reviewers to increase their ranking in the Amazon community – let them know their reviews are being read – and encourage them to continue participating in the program!
IMPORTANT: ONLY Add your Amazon Reviewer Profile to this list!
Add your Blog Posts to the Book Nook Link-Up (BELOW!)
ALL Non-Amazon Reviewer Links will be deleted from this list!
