Welcome to the Book Nook At Create With Joy!
Welcome to the Book Nook at Create With Joy – a place where book lovers gather to share their collective love of books, reading, and all things literary!
Our goal is to establish a family-friendly community where bibliophiles from all backgrounds – readers, bloggers, reviewers, writers, authors, teachers, librarians, parents, homeschoolers, publicists and publishers – can share 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 as well!
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!
We look forward to getting to know you and invite you to connect with us on:
Chat In The Comments: Share The Books You Love!
Welcome to our 3rd gathering of The Book Nook at Create With Joy! In keeping with the calendar, I’d like to extend a warm Valentine’s Day wish to you, and invite you to participate in a discussion in the comments:
Tell us about a book that you really love in the comments!
It can be something you’ve read recently or a book you’ve read long ago and recently recalled. It can be your favorite book of all time or a recent favorite.
Perhaps you’ve discovered a new author that you’d like to read more of or you’d like to tell us about a favorite author you just can’t get enough of!
We look forward to hearing about some really great books from you! And – if there’s anything you’d like to chat about in the weeks to come – drop me an e-mail for future consideration!
The Healthy Lifestyle Books Reading Challenge
Is improving your health and well-being and/or maintaining a healthy lifestyle a priority for you this year? If so, I invite you to join hostess Joy Weese Moll in The Healthy Lifestyle Books Reading Challenge!
The challenge that Joy has set before us is to read any book that supports our healthy lifestyle. We can define “health” as broadly as we need to improve our life – physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.
The challenge runs from January 1 through December 31, 2015 and you can sign up at any time at one of four reading levels:
Fun Run: 1 to 4 books
5K: 5-9 books
10K: 10-14 books
Marathon: 15 books or more
Using a broad definition of health and well-being, I’m joining as a marathoner (it might be the only time I get to run a marathon!) and here are the books I’ve read to date for the challenge:
- Hungry For God, Starving For Time (Emotional/Spiritual)
- Chicken Soup For The Soul – The Power Of Forgiveness (Emotional/Spiritual)
- I Choose You Today – 31 Choices To Make Love Last (Emotional/Spiritual)
- The Beauty Of Grace (Spiritual)
