Should I declared my variable first?

var bookTitle; System.Console.Write(" book title:" + bookTile); System.Console.ReadLIne();

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

The readLine method does not take parameters, it reads what the user types, the best way to capture it, is by assigning it to a variable:

System.Console.Write("Enter a book title: ");
var bookTitle = System.Console.ReadLine();
