You need to declare the variable instead of just printing it. The string bookTitle part declares it, and the equals sign fills it with user input.

string bookTitle = System.Console.ReadLine();

+1 Michael Bateman.

Then you also need to Write the variable, not the string.

edit: In addtion to Michael's comment, the Write should come first and the text should be as described in Step 1.

// Write a question for the user to answer
// Read the user's response and store it in bookTitle

There are two tasks in this challenge.

The first one is to write out a string to ask the user for input. I'm guessing you got that right and moved on to task 2, but it looks like you erased that line from your code. In multi-task challenges, it is important to keep each task you complete and add to it for the next task.

Then for task 2, you add another line to bring in the user's input and store it into a variable. Michael already showed you that line of the solution. So just be sure both lines are there when you submit the task 2 answer.
