> The Things You Can Read: Do You Use Goodreads? New York Times talks Goodreads

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.

Do You Use Goodreads? New York Times talks Goodreads

Are you a fan of Goodreads.com?  We are, we've been a member since May 2010.  If you are unaware of  Goodreads.com then read on because we can't tell you how much we value Goodreads.com.   It is a resource, we use each and everyday.  Take a look at a recent New York Times article entitled "Read Any Good Web Sites Lately? Book Lovers Talk Online" which explores the history of the site and its power.  In the article it is suggested that, "...Goodreads.com, a social media site for finding and sharing titles that has 15 million members, is exploding in popularity and rivaling Amazon.com as a platform for promoting new books."  Wow!  If you want to jump on the bandwagon and join a site that, "...allows passionate readers to share what they are reading, rate books they have already read and list what they are considering next," then check out Goodreads.com.  "The site is also host to roughly 20,000 organically occurring online book clubs for every preference — from people interested in only Proust to those who prefer history and Tudor-period fiction."  See if this is something for you: Goodreads.com.

Take a gander at these two groups!  There are plenty more to join where these came from...Goodreads.com
