can someone check this out pls

In a library database there's a books table. There's a title, author, genre and first_published column. The library database is connected to a website displaying 10 books at a time, sorted by the title alphabetically. Write a query to bring back the second page of results.

what I'm getting is an error when i type this code

SELECT * FROM books ORDER BY title LIMIT 10;

error says: You're missing the OFFSET keyword

Hi Lester, you need to retrieve the second page of results. Your current query would return the first ten results (or first page) so an OFFSET needs to be added to get the correct result.

If you need a reminder on how to apply the OFFSET keyword, this should help
