Summarize its chapters (it would be wise to write the summary as you finish each chapter since you won’t be able to recall it as well later on). This should be a thorough summary. That is if its a documentary, report what points the author is making.

Offer a personal reflection on the subject-matter of the book (an evaluation, e.g., how you were “moved” or not moved, intrigued or not, intellectually stimulated or not, by what you read, or report what thoughts came to mind that you haven’t previously pondered–or thoughts you HAVE previously entertained). Make these “thoughts” more than a paragraph. After all, if you’ve read an entire book, you should be able to say more than 3 or 4 sentences about the book.

In short, do a summary of each chapter followed by what you learned, or thought, or wrestled with–when reading the book, e.g., you might note something for each chapter, or some of the chapters, or the book as a whole.

Be reflective and take the time necessary to think about the material you read.
