  1. I am an English teacher so don't doubt my word,
    BOTH of them are grammatically correct. There is a mishap in the 1. sentence because "decided" is spelled wrong.
    There really is a difference but the only difference i see is that the second sentence is referring to "a" book other than "the" book.
