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.

Holiday Season in Full Swing: Book Lover Gift Giving Tip # Nine


As we all look for unique ways to share our love of books this holiday season we, here at The Things You Can Read, have been scouring the Internet to locate unusual gifts for book lovers to give children and adults of all ages.  Today's tip is simple, how about giving a book, but not a physical book, but rather an Audiobook.  We, here at The Things You Can Read, are big fans of Audiobooks.  Our preferred source is Audible.com, but Tantor.com is another great source, as well.

Here is our personal testimonial for Audiobooks, five days a week, we swim a mile at our local YMCA, and while we swim, we listen to Audiobooks.  We are proud to say, we have shed a few pounds, while simultaneously checking a number of books off of our To Be Read List on Goodreads.  We highly recommend the combination of Audiobooks and exercise.  If you don't believe us, take a peek at the article "How Books Can Trim Your Waistline" posted on Market Watch.

Believe In Truth, Beauty, Freedom, Love, and the Power of Books!
