The book I chose was Tuesdays With Morrie. The reason why I chose this book was because I do not like to read long books at all. I believe books like The Kite Runner are way too long and I would not be interested in reading a book that has that many pages. Also just the title did not interest me at all.
Another reason why I chose Tuesdays With Morrie was because my mom has read this book. She said that this book was very interesting and that I would like it. She told me that the book has to do with this student that was close to his professor and he visits him every Tuesday and they have their talking sessions about life. She did not get into too much detail, but it sounds like it will be a good book and hopefully I will enjoy reading it.

The book I picked was the pact. I honestly don’t like to read but I chose the book because it had to do with doctors from Newark New Jersey. I was born in Newark University Hospital, so I figured it could be something I can maybe relate to since I was born there 18 years ago. Another reason I picked the book is because I think it might be like ER or CSI. Hey, it’s worth a try. My last reason is I don’t like to read long books. Sitting down while reading Is boring, hopefully it won’t be a book that I have to spark note my work. (SIKE!) I’ll never do that.

Before choosing a book, I read descriptions of them on the internet and got the basic idea of what they're all about. I chose Kite Runner, because it is the story about a young kid and his life in the Afghanistan before and after the war. From the description I read, the story seems very interesting.
I would rather read a long book, which is interesting than choose a short book which is boring. I wouldn't waste my time on something that I have no interest in. I am Russian, and I know very little about Afghanistan and its culture, it would be nice to learn something new about it.

I started reading summaries of all the books online. They all seemed very interesting but I finally deicided on choosing one specific book. The book I chose was The Pact. The reason I chose this book was because I felt as though i could relate to this book more . Why ? Well, because first of all the book takes in Newark, New Jersey, which is fifteen minutes away from me. I would be able to realte to the setting or understand the book more because of my familiarity with the location.
I also chose this book because it deals with everyday issues that all humans go through. It deals with students trying to go to school and make the best out of the environment in which they live in. It also deals with a lack of a father figure in a household. These are mundane issues that we wish would not be happening in the world, but sadly they do. All in all i chose this book because I feel as though I have a lot in common with the issues and struggles presented in the novel.

The book that i choose was the "Pact". I choose this novel since it was one of the only ones that really struck me that i would be interested in. For me to be interested in a book is not easy this book i feel will be fine for me.
This book will also be a good one for me since it help people do everyday things an will help me learn more as well considering my major being criminal justice. It also seems to be a similar book to us like dealing with school issues. So all an all i feel that this novel will definitely be a very interesting book an i look forward to reading it.

After reading and reviewing the different themes of every book online, i decided to choose The Pact as the novel i would like to read for this class. The reason I chose this book was because its based on a true and real story about three men who struggled through hard times in order to become successful. I think the book will be inspirational due to the fact that these three men grew up in a very tough neighborhood in Newark with the dream that they would all attend Seton Hall and become doctors and their dreams became a reality.

Truthfully, i hate reading. I bores me and puts me to sleep. I really need a book that catches my attention in order for me to read it. I read the descriptions about all the books. I finally made my decision to read Pact. I chose packed because i am very into relationships and friends. I have a very close relationship to my friends back home and i understand why George would want his friends to come to college with him. I am very interested in seeing how their friendships play out in the rest of the book.

I chose the pact because I've already read the other books and I liked them all but the kite runner was my favorite. However, After reading all the reviews I was very please with my choice. I found the book very interesting and inspirational. I hope to learn something good from their stories.

The book I chose was The Lovely Bones. I read about all the other books before I picked this one but I picked this one because it seemed to be a little different from the rest. The book is told from the view of the girl from heaven. I thought it might be a little more interesting if you see the story from her eyes.
I chose this book because it sounded interesting. The book sounds like something different than I would normally read and it sounds like I will enjoy it. It also sounds like the book will keep my attention and I will want to read it.

The book that I chose is The Lovely Bones. I heard a lot of good things about it from good friends and my mom. The other books didn't really seem to interest me and I already read Tuesday's With Morrie which personally I thought was an amazing book. Considering I don't like reading at all and nothing ever seems to interest me, my mom told me that if I enjoyed Tuesday's With Morrie I would enjoy The Lovely Bones. How they compare? I'm not sure since the ideas behind them are different but I'm willing to give this book a shot.

The book that I chose was THE PACT. I can honestly say that I really do not like to read at all even if people tell me I would enjoy reading something. After reading biographys I thought that THE PACT would be the book that would interest me the most because it is about three friends who make a deal to become doctors and I think it will be interesting to see how they become doctors and what problems and events occur along the way.

I originally wanted to read Tuesdays With Morrie, but I already read it. It was such a great book to read and I loved all the lessons that Morrie teaches. But, I wanted to try something new.
I chose The Kite Runner because it had the word "Runner" and I'm a runner! And I like running! Another reason why I chose the book is when I read what it was going to be about I felt Amir's tale is going to be an adventure to read about. I like books that will keep me wanting to read what will happen next.
Also because I saw my friend reading it last year and she said that it was a really good book. I trust her opinion, and I hope that I like the book as well. She told me that it has an awesome story line. I heard that it will be a challenging book to read, but I hope that I am able to understand the whole story line.

The book i chose was The Kite Runner. When we were told we had to read a book and the prof. gave us our choices the kid next to me said the Kite Runner was a good book and the cover looked pretty sick so I decided that was going to be my book. I also had another person tell me that the book was sad but it was still enjoyable. So im hoping that it wont be a pain to sit down and read this book

I chose The Kite Runner because i knew so many kids i went to high school with who had to read the book for their lit class. i wasnt able to read it but i heard so many good things about it and i love to read good books instead of short boring books. once a good book has my attention i can read the whole thing in like a day or two. and i feel that this book will do that for me. =)

.netI choose was The Pact, I picked it because I wanted to try something new. I already read Tuesdays with Morrie and The Kite Runner. The other doesn't interest me so I chose The Pact. Since I'm from Newark it would be nice to hear how people from a somewhat negative environment became positive people.

well i picked the book Lovely Bones. and i though the idea of reading a book that was told by a dead person would be really cool. im realy wondering what kind of story a dead person would tell. another reason why i picked the book is because it didnt sound that hard to read. and if i can read it i can really get into it.
