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: Do You Read With The Seasons?
Welcome to our 6th gathering of The Book Nook at Create With Joy! I’m thrilled to welcome those of you who are just discovering our community as well as those who have been with us from the start!
This week, I’m wondering – do you notice a change in your reading preferences as you move from one season to another?
During the Fall and Winter months, I notice I tend to get very introspective, and my mood often spills over into the books I am drawn to. My reading tends to be heavier, weightier, more serious – this season in particular, I found myself drawn to writers of the past and heavier, more theological works.
Now that Spring has sprung, however, I’m ready to lighten things up a bit! I’m ready to delve into all of those great novels that have been stacking up in my TBR pile – lose myself in centuries past – solve some baffling mysteries – read some great children’s books – and focus on all things pet, health and cooking related!
Not it’s your turn! Please share your answer to the following question in the comments or write a Book Nook blog post and share the link!
Do you notice any shifts in your reading preferences as the seasons change – or do you tend to read consistently throughout the year?
Creative Challenge – Book Haiku!
For Book Nook 6, I’d like to invite you to participate in a Creative Challenge. Gather your favorite books and use the titles to create Book Haiku!
For this challenge, you can use as many books as you like to create your poem – the only rule is that it must contain a total of 17 syllables when read aloud.
When you’ve written your poems, snap a photo of your books and share it with us by posting it on your blog, linking up, and leaving a comment.
If you are aware of an upcoming event that would interest our community, please drop me a line so that I can add it to the list!

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?
Today, I’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) – are invited to visit as many reviewers as possible – choose one or more reviews that they like – and 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 Links will be deleted from this list!
