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.

Juliet in August: Mini-Review

In twenty-four hours a lot can happen.  Even for those living in the quiet prairie town of Juliet, Saskatchewan. Pick up a copy of Juliet in August by Dianne Warren and see what an outwardly sleepy little town has to offer. A tale of families, but with a finely focused view of their lives in a twenty-four hour period.  If you are a fan of Alice Munro then Dianne Warren is an author you need to try.  I guarantee Juliet in August will not disappoint.  A character driven novel that will not let those who love this genre down.  

A big thanks to Net Galley and Amy Einhorn Books/Putnam USA for the review copy of Juliet in August.

Happy Reading
