I am not sure if you are having trouble with the step "Variables" or "Console I/O" but to declare a variable in C# you first specify the type and then the name of the variable. The first line in your code is wrong as it is trying to give the type a value instead of the variable. This is the correct way to declare a variable:

string bookTitle;

If you want to use the input value from the console as the variables value you do exactly as you've written in your post:

string bookTitle = System.Console.ReadLine();

If you instead want to use the variable as an output to the console you need to pass that variable to the function System.Console.Write(), like this:
