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.

I want to thank Rose City Reader for bringing Top Ten Tuesday to my attention.  This is my first attempt at participating, so here goes...Top Ten Words/Topics That Will Make You NOT pick up a book.
  1. Vampires (except Dracula by Bram Stoker)
  2. Werewolves
  3. Zombies
  4. Erotica (Zilch interest in reading this genre)
  5. YA Romance
  6. YA High School Drama
  7. Fairy Tales Retold from different points of view
  8. Aliens
  9. Pirate Stories (except Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie)
  10. Adult Romance (Think bare chested man on cover kind of romance)
I didn't think I could get to ten, but I did.  I'm sure I'll think of something else later, but this will have to do.  I'm getting this in under the wire.  What are your top ten turn-offs?  Let us know here at The Things You Can Read.
