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: When Do You Find Time To Read?
Welcome to our 7th 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’s question comes from my husband, who would like to know:
In the midst of your busy schedules,
When do you find the time to read?
I thought this was a topic we’d all love to discuss and read about, so I invite you to share your answers in the comments – or to write a Book Nook blog post and share the link!
For me, reading comes both in dedicated and in stolen moments. Reading is an integral part of my life, so I make the time to read (although, at times, it can be challenging!) Sometimes I set aside chunks of time to read by joining events like a Read-A-Thon. Sometimes I set aside time to read during the day (it’s a wonderful alternative to watching TV, for example!)
And, I always make sure I have reading material on hand for “stolen moments” – time that would otherwise be lost, down time – time waiting in line… time waiting for someone to show for an appointment… little moments that, when spent well, can surprisingly add up into pages a day!
Not it’s your turn! In the midst of your busy schedule, when do you find the time to read? Share your answers in the comments – we look forward to reading your responses!
