Do you know the difference between a book report and a book review? some people do not realize that there is a difference.

How I Discovered This

So I've been writing childrens stories in hopes of becoming they next famous children's author. One day I decided that when I am not writing amd pursuing that dream that I still want to make an income somehow involving books. So I cam up with the idea of writing book reviews. It keeps my mind fresh with reading lots of books and it's also something I enjoy. So I spent a lot of time researching sites to submit my reviews to and I found it really interesting.

Books Reports

So books reports is something everyone has done when they were in school. You are given a book and you write a report telling all about the book. You write a few paragraphs explaining what happens throighout the book. You basically sum up exactly what the book is about in a couple paragraphs.

Book Reviews

A book review is different than a book report. A book review is telling people a little about the book but more about your experience with the book. You tell people what you liked and what you disliked about the book. Then people can use what you say about the book and decide if it's a good read for them.


I think some people don't realize that there is a difference. And you know what? That's okay becuase I didn't understand there was a difference at one time. I just feel that people should be careful when putting down people book reviews because they are expecting a book report. I've seen this happen to a lot of peoples reviews and it can be upsetting for an author to see a comment that doesn't apply.
