Note: Annotated bibliography entries are written in block paragraph form using single spacing, as is illustrated in the Purdue OWL example. The reason is that it provides a condensed reference format for ease of reference at a later date. When writing your annotated bibliography entry, do not include the paragraph designations: Paragraph 1, Paragraph 2, Paragraph 3. These were used above to better illustrate the required format for the bibliographies. Bibliographies make use of paraphrasing. The only actual direct quote that should be included in your annotation is the one used to describe your favorite quote as indicated in the Paragraph 3 description above. The following Purdue OWL website provides useful information about the importance of paraphrasing, the six steps to achieve effective paraphrasing, and examples: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/563/02/
