It looks like you got a little "carried away".

This is a basic exercise in variable declaration and initialization. You won't need to call any System.Console methods for this challenge.

Task 1 of the challenge says, "Declare a string variable named bookTitle.", but your string is named "entry". I'm not sure how you got to task 2, or did you change it after passing task 1?

Then to initialize it "with the title of your favorite book", just add an equal-sign and put your book title inside quotes. That's all you need, nothing fancy here.

figured it out thanks

I'm in a predicament here as well.

string bookTitle; worked out fine bookTitle = "Chariot of the Gods"; OR bookTitle = ("Chariot of the Gods"); both not being accepted. What am I doing wrong here?

You still need to keep the word string before the variable name ... it looks like you removed that?
