2.) in a well-written essay of seven paragraphs (one for each book, with an introduction and a conclusion), tell which book you have selected and defend your choice in terms of the book's meaning and the contribution it can make to a better world.  do this for four (4) of the 
books you have selected. the final body paragraph should address the work that you have decided to memorize and "become." tell why you have selected this book and why you think it more important than the others to memorize and "become."

remember, good body paragraphs need a topic sentence and at least five more sentences which illustrate and support the topic sentence. be as specific as you can when naming and justifying each selection.
