I don't even know what I'm doing wrong here again!

I don't know how to set the input to be a variable

System.Console.Write ("Enter a book title: ");
string bookTitle;

Hey Ultan,

So you have all the ingredients, just slightly out of order ;)

System.Console.Readline() will RETURN the value from the console input. So since you want to store it in a var, you'll set that var equal to this like so:

System.Console.Write ("Enter a book title: ");
string bookTitle = System.Console.ReadLine();
System.Console.Write (bookTitle); //will output what they typed in
