Ran into a bit of a problem with the last exercise when I ran the statement through the terminal. I put Console.WriteLine(); before string genre = Console.ReadLine(); but when I ran the statement with a genre through the terminal it comes up with errors.

Did you include a message in Console.WriteLine();? E.g.

Console.WriteLine("Pick a genre: ");
string genre = Console.ReadLine();
