Q: What is "What's the Word"?
What’s the Word is a live feed of user activity on You Are What You Read. It shows when STACKS users add a book to their Bookprint, when they "Like" a book and when they give or receive a book through Pass It On.
If you are a new STACKS user, your activity will not appear in the feed for the first two weeks. This is because we need time to make sure that your Screen Name is safe and does not contain personally identifiable information.
Q: What is "Similar Users"?
Based on the five books you’ve listed, we've identified other users who’ve chosen at least one of the same books!
Q: How do I delete my account or my child's account?
We’ll miss you! But you can delete your account by contacting Customer Service at (800) 246-2986. If we delete your You Are What You Read profile on THE STACKS, your STACKS account will remain active unless you also request that it be deactivated.
THE STACKS is Scholastic’s site about books and reading for kids, where children can create profiles and interact with other children about books, authors and other subjects of interest in a safe and kid-friendly environment. No personally identifiable information (full name, address, email, phone number) is required to create a STACKS account or to use You Are What You Read for kids.
To create a new account on THE STACKS, a user creates a username by picking a combination of words from drop-down menus. A number is assigned at the end of the word combination. The user also enters a password. We ask users a security question when they register, which does not require personally identifiable information and will only be used to allow a user to sign in if he or she forgets his or her password. Of this information, only the username is publicly posted on YouAreWhatYouRead or THE STACKS. Users are also required to submit country, state/province, gender, and age information as part of registration, but this information is stored anonymously and in the aggregate, not in association with the individual user, and will not be posted publicly except as part of anonymous, aggregate site statistics.
