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.

Arm Chair BEA

Arm Chair BEA

Welcome to my debut post for Arm Chair BEA.  I am a new participant in Armchair BEA, but I have watched from afar in previous years. I'm looking forward to participating.  The folks over at Armchair BEA site have asked for an "Introduce Yourself" post and have provided a few questions, so here we go:

1Who are you?
I am a Mother, Wife, Teacher, Blogger, Reviewer, Writer
For more about me: Click HERE

2What are you currently reading, or what is your favorite book 
you have read so far in 2013?
I am reading several books right now: 
3Which is your favorite post that you have written 
that you want everyone to read?
I actually have two posts that I am extremely proud of, and here they are:

4How long have you been blogging? 
I have been blogging regularly for a year at The Things You Can Read 
and The Writing Whisperer

5Where in the world are you blogging from? 
Tell a random fact or something special about your current location. 
Feel free to share pictures.
I am blogging from Petersburg, Virginia, which is where Steven Spielberg filmed the movie Lincoln.  Check out The Richmond Times Dispatch and The Progress Index articles regarding Spielberg's visit to our town.  Petersburg is a town that many fall in love with, but only as long as their rose-colored glasses remain fully in place.  Should they slip...UH-OH!

Happy Reading!
