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.

Useful information. However having challenges to get the italic tool. As a result I had to request for an extension. Consider other options for example use of capital letters for the Title of a book.

You should be able to access all of the styling tools after adding your review to the Dialog Box and then hitting the Preview Button. Until hitting Preview, the tools are not visible. I hope that helps. 💕

:? :? I understand the point but how about footnotes or endnotes. Are we allowed to quote and footnote the location? I'm not sure what to do.

You should not include footnotes or endnotes when including a short quote from the book.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

I have a question about quotations. In my review, if I want to use a sentence or an important word from a character, do I just simply "put it in quotation marks" without the need to refer to the page number or location? Or there are rules I gotta take into account?
Can I do this at all?
