Karen from N.Y. asks...
My son is writing a paper on comparing and contrasting two charaters from two different books. When writing the essay, do you underline the names of the two books you are writing about?
Anne answers...
If he is writing the paper in longhand, he underlines the titles of the two books. If he is writing the paper on a computer, it's better to italicize the titles.
