how can i read the user’s response from the console and store it in a variable named bookTitle in this situation?

I don`t know how to fix it.

System.Console.Write (bookTitle);
string bookTitle ;

In this situation you want to assign the user's entry to the variable bookTitle. At the moment you declared an empty string called bookTitle and then asked the user for input, the two are not related right now because you seperated them with a semicolon ( ; ) .

The following code declares the string bookTitle to store/contain the user's input.

string bookTitle = System.Console.ReadLine();
