Quotes on book titles.
Some writers use quotation marks for book titles. Is this appropriate? I found 2 Grammarly answers about italics and underlining; but nothing on quotes.
The appropriate was to punctuate titles depends on the formatting style you are using. For more academic formats, you should never put quotation marks around a book title. Book titles, as with titles of music albums and newspapers, should be italicised or underlined (which in writing are functional equivilents). For titles of articles and songs, you would punctuate the title with quotation marks.
For example: In "Time for Change", published in the December 2008 edition of TIME Magazine, the author argues that President Obama's win. . .
If it is the title of your own work -- you probably should not do any special formatting to the title. It is quoted works that need special formatting. If you have any concern, check the handbook of the writing style you use.
