How should the name of a series of books be formatted?
I know that you underline – or if you're typing, you put the words in *italics* – the titles of books, and that you put chapters or quotations from a book in "quotes," but do you do anything to the font of a series of books; for example, Ranger's Apprentice?
I'm using this in an author's note, writing about how I am writing a book while reading a series, and that I want to mention that a specific series that I was reading inspired me.
It is generally acceptable to underline/italicize the tile of a books series in the same way that you would the title of a single book. An exception to consider: if the series does not have an official title/trilogy name/etc. you could put it in quotes (e.g. I read the "Ramona" books by Beverly Cleary as a child but my friend preferred to read books from A Series of Unfortunate Events). Hope this helps!
