Some writing style guides (such as the University of Oxford Style Guide, 2014) say, 'Titles of books, journals, plays, films, musical works etc should be given in italics if they are a complete published work.'
e.g.: I,Robot contains nine short stories.
Should the title of a book be still used in italics if a part of it is referred?
I have read A Tale of Two Cities recently.Which case is proper to the style of writing?a) I have read A Tale.
b) I have read A Tale.
You should use italics. People sometimes abbreviate the name in later references, in which case plain upper case is ok:
I have read A Tale.
I have read ATOTC.
I don't think there's any common convention about whether or not to include minor words in the abbreviation and whether to capitalize their initials. I wouldn't be surprised to see "TOTC", "ToTC", or "TTC" in this case.
I'm not crazy about the abbreviated style because reading it interrupts my flow. Nevertheless, I see it quite often.
I am not a teacher.
