Your Questions About How To Write A Book Title In A Paper

Tue, May 22, 2012

Writing and speaking

Maria asks…

How to write a title of a book in a paper?

Hi I have an english assignment and we have to handwrite it. I need to include a name of the book in it and I know if you type a book you use italics.

If the name of the book is Room by Emma Donoghue would I write it like this “Room” by Emma Donoghue or underline it? Thanks!

vermins answers:

Handwritten- Underline the title

Ken asks…

How do you write the title of a book?

I have to write an essay on a book and I have the title of the book in the title of my paper. How do I write it? Underline, quotations?

vermins answers:

The title of a book can be underlined or written in italics (not both!)

Charles asks…

do i underline, italics, or quote the book title in my paper?

i have to write a literary analysis, and the book is huckleberry finn and related readings. i only have to read huck finn. so when i am writing my paper, what do i do with the title, cuz its not the only story in the book, but its not an anthology either, cuz the rest of the stories and poems are only a few pages. also how would i use MLA formating on this book? if u can answer either question, then thank you very much! =)

vermins answers:

You underline titles of longer works i.e. Novel, biography etc

and here’s a style guide

Lizzie asks…

Grammar: how to write the title of a comic book in a paper?

Should the title of a comic book be underlined or placed in quotes when written?

Thanks in advance

vermins answers:

Captial letter at the start, inside quotes. That’s the usual way I’ve seen them.

Donna asks…

I’m writing a paper and I used the title of a book, I referenced it. How do i properly reference it?

I said, in Shel Silversteins’, The Giving Tree,……….do I have to put that in quotations or underline it??

vermins answers:

There are two correct ways. You can either underline the book, or if you are using a computer (which I am guessing you are) you can italicize the book’s title.

However, if you are citing the book within your essay, you will need to put a citation at the end of the sentence with the author’s last name and page number within in parentheses. I have included a website that may help you out.
