My guess is your problem is that the second time he doesn't wait for the bookname?
That's because to set the quantity you use input.NextInt();
Scanner.nextInt() doesn't go to the nextLine, so the next value you get is just that.
To solve it you must consume the nextLine before using the scanner again.

That is one way to solve that problem. You only need to call nextLine twice if you want nextLine after nextAnythingElse and you are using the enter key.
