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.

Why Books Make Us Laugh?


Why do books make us laugh?  Well, click on over to Huffington Post for all the details.  What it boils down to is this: 
"Why do we laugh just by looking at some ink on a page? Because in our imaginations we recreate the story, parts of us think it's real, and we react to benign violations just like we do in real life. You can read a frightening story, or an adventure story, from the safety of your living room: it's the pleasure of something that feels scary but is actually safe."-Huffington Post
What was the last novel that made you laugh out loud?  Mine was one of the many essays found in the David Sadaris Collection.  

Happy Reading & Writing
