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:
What’s New In The World Of Publishing?
July is a huge month in the world of book publishing as the posthumous book releases of two literary giants are taking the world by storm!
To Set A Watchman – Harper Lee
On July 14, 2015, Harper Lee’s highly anticipated Go Set A Watchman – the follow-up to her beloved, Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece, To Kill A Mockingbird, was released.
HarperCollins Publishers announced that Go Set A Watchman has set new records by becoming the fastest selling book in their history, selling more than 1.1 million copies of the book in the U.S. and Canada by the week of its release.
Barnes & Noble executive Mary Amicucci believes that Go Set A Watchman will be the top book seller of 2015.
As anticipated, interest in To Kill A Mockingbird is high as well as people read or reread the classic as a prelude to Harper Lee’s new novel.
Share Your Thoughts!
I can’t wait to re-read To Kill A Mockingbird and read Go Set A Watchman as I think it will be fascinating to compare the two books. Are these books on your reading list? Why or why not?
What Pet Should I Get? – Dr. Seuss
On July 28, 2015, beloved author Dr. Seuss’s new book, What Pet Should I Get, is scheduled for release – and as you would expect, children of all ages are overcome with anticipation and excitement!
This Random House book – which is already #1 in the Children’s Book category on Amazon – asks and answers a question that every parent and pet lover can appreciate:
What happens when a brother and sister visit a pet store to pick a pet? Naturally, they can’t choose just one!
As undignified as it may sound, I am giddy with excitement about this new Dr. Seuss book and I’m probably not the only reader who feels this way!
Share Your Thoughts!
I am giddy with excitement about What Pet Should I Get? and I’m sure I’m not the only Dr. Seuss fan out there! Who else is planning to read this book? Is Dr. Seuss just for kids?
