> The Things You Can Read: More on What Kind of Reader Are You?

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

More on What Kind of Reader Are You?

What Kind of Book Reader are You?
Back on September 1, The Things You Can Read's post discussed the article found on The Atlantic Wire written by Jen Doll entitled "What kind of book reader are you?" (Click here to see our September 1 Post) As we said earlier, according to The Atlantic Wire, we all have a category.  Well, on Wednesday, September 19, 2012 one of our  favorite podcasts, Books on the Nightstand, devoted a full seven minutes of their podcast to discussing this question, and deciding which category or categories the hosts, Ann and Michael, fit into.   It warmed our hearts to realize we weren't the only ones interested in this question or article for that matter.  If you would like to listen to what Ann and Michael from BOTN had to say on the subject simply click on the link below, and take a listen.  It goes without saying, but we will say it anyway, as always, we'd love to hear what you think of these categories, and if you could add another category with your very own personal description please fill free to share your creation with us.
