> The Things You Can Read: World Book Night Response

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.

World Book Night Response

In connection with World Book Night, twenty 7th grades students, all of which were light readers, received free copies of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury on the 50th anniversary of its publication.  It was our hope that students receiving the book would write a short response sharing their thoughts about the novel, which would then be sent to worldbooknight.org and now we have our first response!

Fahrenheit 451

Here is what T. W. had to say about Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury:

Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is by far one of the most bizarre and tenacious stories I have ever read.  It is also one of my most favorite.  With vivid descriptions and sensory details, as well as, eerily similar aspects to today’s world, it is most deserving of the title CLASSIC.

Again, thank you World Book Night for allowing me to reach out to students and foster in them a love of reading!

Happy Reading!

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