    https://education.yahoo.com/referenc...ary/entry/book Look here for your definitions. OneLook Dictionary Search is an excellent resource.

    I have no idea as to the meaning of #1.

    Re: I want to book you not to tell anyone

    Sentence #1 means nothing. I would expect it to say something like "I want to urge you not to tell anyone" or "I want to beg you not to tell anyone". Even then, "want to" is redundant in both cases.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
