Next, find a quote from your book that you feel comfortable talking about or just enjoyed.  We are going to write it several different ways.  

First, follow the following format:  
So-and-so said, "Blah, blah, blah" (Last name #)

Next, use the following format:
In Title of Book, author states "blah, blah, blah" (#).

Finally, choose your own way of quoting your book.
