A general note to anyone writing a book report

If you are writing a book report, novel study, essay or other homework-related activity, no, I can’t give you a summary of the book. I won’t tell you how it ends, answer your novel study questions, tell you the theme or give you a list of characters.

Sorry, guys. I’d strongly suggest reading the book yourself.

And if whatever reason, that is just not going to happen, try skimming through the book, or skipping right to the last chapter, or looking at the back cover, or reading the blurb and reviews on Amazon. (Not that I’d really recommend any of these things over actually reading the book, but life happens.)

If you’ve lost your book or left it at school, start with your local public library. And if you’re really stuck on one of your questions, go ask your teacher.

That is all.
