    Default entitled vs titled

    Dear teachers,

    How do you distinguish the usage between entitled and titled?
    Here are my example sentences. Which is the best?

    1. I was reading a book entitled "ABC for beginning English learner"
    2. I was reading a book titled "ABC for beginning English learner"

    Default Re: entitled vs titled

    Sentence #1 is incorrect. "Entitle" is the action of giving a title or honor to something.


    example: The author entitled his book "ABC for beginning English learner".
