> The Things You Can Read: Book Blogger Hop: September 6-12, 2013

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.

Book Blogger Hop: September 6-12, 2013

Book Blogger Hop: September 6-12, 2013
What got you started as a blogger? Everyone has a story/reason, what's yours?

I wanted a place to document by personal reading journey, other than Goodreads (which I love and use), and I wanted this place to also help me with my teaching, thus The Things You Can Read was born on June 7, 2012.  I use it everyday teaching the novel The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, and I try to add other items that I use every year like Elements of Fiction, Drama, etc.  I know that I am not the only person benefiting from having this information out there in the blogosphere because one of the biggest hits for my blog comes from Teaching The Outsiders Page.     

Why did you start blogging?  Let us know here at The Things You Can ReadThanks, as always, to Coffee Addicted Writer for hosting Book Blogger Hop

Happy reading to all! ☮  

Happy Hopping and Reading!

  5. Thanks so much for the praise. I teach The Outsiders four times each school year so the blog has made it so much easier.
