    I have a question about book report writing. If you know the answer, please let me know. After going through various chapters, do you have to write about each chapter indivdiually or you just summarize all the things? Please help.

    Are we speaking of a Harry Potter novel, or something more substantial like "Crime and Punishment"?

    It depends on several things: how big the book is, and how big the report must be. A 20-page report on "The Cat in the Hat" would need to be extremely detailed; a half-page report on "War and Peace" will have little to no detail.

    Does the teacher want your opinion on the ideas in the book?

    Finally, I would get something like FreeMind (http://freemind.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/Main_Page) to organize and re-organize my ideas.
