If you are clueless in writing book reports, you should probably consider referring to websites that offer free tutorials and book report samples. Some of these websites indicate step by step procedures on the proper ways of writing book reports. For one, the Lakewood Public Library provides a complete student guide to writing an excellent book report. It gives a detailed introduction on the difference of a book review and a book report. A book review is comprised of important bibliographic information of the book, a summary of the book’s content and the personal opinions of the critique. In writing a book review, the reader is free to pass judgment on the author and his writing style. While it focuses more on the reader’s opinion, a book report is merely a factual document and contains no personal opinion at all. All you would need to write in book reports are the important bibliographic information and the book’s summary.
And to be able to do this, you first should pick a book you want to write a book report on. The teacher could assign you a book to read but if she does not, your book of choice should be favorable to you. The content should not be extremely hard to understand. Remember that you would have to summarize it and writing about the book you do not clearly grasp could be a problem. Also, you have to like the book. You need to have patience in reading that book and then writing a report about it. If you do not enjoy reading it, the consequences will reflect on your writing and you may not produce a good output.
