Is anyone else doing an essay on books that have affected you most? If so, how many books are you writing about? I’m doing three, which at about 150 words each I think is a good fit. But is it a good idea to write about books that don’t carry any weight except for them being among your all time favorite books? I wrote about one science book by Stephan Gould and one journalism book, but I’m also writing about one of my favorite other books. How can i tie that into something unique? Thanks.
<p>Yeah, my scholarship app. question is on a book's influence. The problem I have is that I read so many books I have a hard time remembering the ones I have read. I read about 2 novels a week... but I can't think of any one in particular that has influenced me.</p>
<p>isint it better to do just onne book? If you do many books there wont be enough words to tell the "story" of you and the books influence.</p>
<p>im reading this over and i just noticed why i got a 660 on writing</p>
<p>I am, but mine has a 250 word limit.</p>
<p>I was actually thinking of writing about Neil Gaiman's The Sandman series, but so far the effort has been a pain in the ass because the essay has to factor in what you want the college to know about you as well; it doesn't want a book report on the brain orgasms you get reading it (or maybe they do? Who knows nowadays...)</p>
