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

You are using a variable named entry to store the book title, and the challenge is expecting a variable named bookTitle.

The second task asks "Use the System.Console.ReadLine method to read the user’s response from the console and store it in a variable named bookTitle."

Swap 'entry' to 'bookTitle' as the CC is looking for the variable called bookTitle;

var bookTitle = System.Console.ReadLine();

Okay, I try it.

And it works !!

Thanks Michael and Alex for your help.
