Challenge Task 2 of 2 Use the System.Console.ReadLine method to read the user’s response from the console and store it in a variable named bookTitle.

I have retried this problem 4 times following along with the video on Receiving Input with Jeremy McLain.

The only thing I do different here is: not able to save by pressing ctrl + S not able to run compiler also I never get output when I click the preview button after writing the methods

CodeChallenge.cs
System.Console.Write("Enter a book title: ");

string entry = System.Console.ReadLine();

Hi there, Monica Wilson ! I received your request for assistance and you're doing terrific! But you were supposed to do something a bit differently. The challenge asks you to to assign the result in a variable named bookTitle, but you are storing it in a variable named entry, so when the challenge goes to look up the value in bookTitle it can't find anything there.

Simply change:

string entry

to:

string bookTitle

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

ok thanks.
