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.

Start Planning your Hobbit Day Celebration!

Did you know that September 22 was Hobbit Day?  Well, it is and if you want to start planning your party here are some resources that are available at HMHBooks.com. If you need another reason to celebrate here it is:
"Celebrate Bilbo’s birthday and your love of The Hobbit with us. Need another reason to celebrate? The third film in The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies comes out in theaters from Warner Bros. Pictures on December 17th."
Read on for event ideas and downloadable resources to help you host your own celebration.

Event Ideas

  • Throw Bilbo a birthday party, complete with cake, balloons and games. For games, how about a scavenger hunt to play in classrooms, bookstores or libraries, and a Hobbit version of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, Pin the Ring on Bilbo!
  • Interested in a hobbit feast? Download menu ideas and recipes.
  • Have a Hobbit trivia night; download The Hobbit trivia questions
  • Host a marathon reading of The Hobbit
  • Nametags for your guests. Why not have them write their names in Dwarven runes?
