APA citation

I am unsure, with APA when you write the title of a book in text, example: from the book Harry Potter....do you underline, or italicize the title? I know when doing the references list that the title of the book will only have the first letter capitalized, but when referring to the book in the work, this is not done, right? Thanks very much, this has always confused me with APA, and my teacher won't confirm if I am correct! Thanks!

  1. All book titles should have the first letter of each word capitalized. Book titles should also be either underlined or italicized. Also -- I don't think any book is named just Harry Potter.
