> The Things You Can Read: Things To Say About Books You've Never Read

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.

Things To Say About Books You've Never Read

"The vast majority of the world's books, music, films, television and art, you will never see. It's just numbers." Linda Holmes, NPR culture blog Monkey See
Unfortunately, as much as we try, we can't read it all, but oh boy wouldn't we like to!  Take a look at two Huffington Posts articles: 7 Things To Say About Books You've Never Read and 9 Spoilers For Classic Books.  Both address this idea of offering tips on how to bluff your way through conversations about key classic novels you've never read.  A word of caution, the articles contain spoilers, so BEWARE!   What do you think of these articles?  For us here, at The Things You Can Read, we prefer actually reading the classics verses pretending to have read them.  Again, what is your take?  Leave a comment and let us know.

Happy Reading!

  1. I used to feel bad about the books I hadn't read, but now I don't. I've read so many books that I feel like few people should judge me.
