Use underlining, italics, or quotation marks for titles?

Some grammar rules (and embarrassing mistakes!) transcend the uniqueness of different regions and style guides. This new International Grammar section by OnlineBookClub.org ultimately identifies those rules thus providing a simple, flexible rule-set, respecting the differences between regions and style guides. You can feel free to ask general questions about spelling and grammar. You can also provide example sentences for other members to proofread and inform you of any grammar mistakes.

Thanks for style, it was helpful to read this requirement for reviews as I have only done one and it was a complete mess as I completed it without reading the Team's guidlines. Will not make that mistake in my next review. Thanks.

Thank you. so how do we know when to underline the title of the book and how do we know when to put it in quotations? If it is an actual stand-alone book such as a novel that we are reviewing?

Oh, amybo32 answered my question. Understand.

However, if we are summarizing something and using an introduction in summary we are able to underline the word introduction in summary according to zeldas_lullaby.
