Question:

How do I incorporate quotes from the book we're reading in my paper?

Inactive

Answer:

There's a couple ways of doing this. One, you can make a block quote. Block quotes are good for when you're citing a longer passage from the book - usually over a sentence or two. Another way is to have an in line quote. This quote starts or ends a sentence usually and is led into or followed after by some of your own thoughts or insights into what the quote is saying or it's meaning in the larger context of your point or the book itself.

Question:

I read through this book but it was so boring! I have to discuss it in class though - what do I do?

Answer:

Break it down into smaller, more digestible chunks. What was the most interesting thing to you? Was it a character? What about them made them interesting? Were the descriptions very detailed, or were they rather sparse? What about the book didn't you like specifically; if the main character seemed two dimensional, talk about how they did or didn't interact with the world.

Question:

Why is my thesis statement important? Do I really need one?

Answer:

Your thesis statement is the keystone of your paper. While your introduction paragraph introduces the topic, and your key players (characters, books, comparison, etc.), your thesis statement is what the paper is really about. It gives your reader a hint as to what's coming while outlining your argument or reason for writing.
