    What is important here is that you make it clear to your reader that you are not citing the book itself, but still stressing its importance. Depending on what citation style you are using, such as MLA or APA, you either underline or italicize the book title contained within the article title. So for example, if the article you are citing is called: “Why Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the best book in the Harry Potter series,” you would instead write: “Why Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets is the best book in the Harry Potter series.”
