Challenge Task 1 of 2

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. MY CODE; SELECT * FROM books ORDER BY title ASC; LIMIT 10 OFFSET 10

RETURNING ERROR; TEN RECOREDS EXPECTED 20 RETURNED

It looks like the semi-colon after ASC is causing the problem:

SELECT * FROM books ORDER BY title ASC LIMIT 10 OFFSET 10;
