A Book Report

STEP 1: LISTEN TO THE AUDIO

I have to write a biography about a famous person. I can choose any person who is alive or deceased. I don't have any ideas. I'm going to the library tonight. Hopefully, I'll be able to find some good books to read. I have three weeks to finish the assignment. I searched online, but I didn't get any inspirations. This is going to take some time. I need to get a good grade on this book report. It counts for the majority of my history grade. When we got to the library, there weren't any parking spots left. It must be a busy night. There were some spots available across the street. When we got inside, there weren't many biographies left. Many books were already checked out. I walked up and down the aisles. There were some books on former presidents and leaders of the world. But I didn't want to pick any person. I want to write about a person with some character. My older brother tried to give me some ideas, but they didn't interest me. After a couple of hours, he wanted to leave. He doesn't have any patience. I was desperate, so I decided to pick up any book. Then, I saw the ideal book for me. My favorite subject is science, so I should write about my favorite scientist. His name is Albert Einstein.
