    well, over the holidays i was assigned to read 2 books for my coursework which i would start when i go back (next thursday)

    problem is, i havent read either...
    is it possible to write the coursrwork without reading them (VERY STUPID QUESTION) but instead read online essays, comparisons , analysis, summary's, main quotes.
    i would be comparing a common theme between the two.

    what do you guys think? /xo

    i'm in the same situation lmfao. it's definitely possible. i've just read into it a lot on sparknotes/shmoop/etc and i'm kinda winging it.

    even if your work isn't accurate, will it be marked multiple times? because your teacher will pick up on things you may have missed and will help you along. that's what i'm leaning on right now.

    Not really, you need to be able to form your own opinions on the texts as well as the using critical opinions, as well as really understanding the books. What are the books you have to read? If you dedicate some time everyday to them then you might be able to finish them, or at least have read a good chunk of them, before you go back, depending on how fast you read.
