                System.out.print("Enter book author : ");

                bStatus = "Available";
                System.out.println("Book added in the system..");

                books[bCount] = new Book(bTitle,bType,bAuthor,bISBN,bStatus);
                bCount ++;

            //Error msg
            default :
                    System.out.println("Invalid selection");

My problem is when after I input an int in 'choice', when I want to enter a string with space in bTitle say "Purpose Driven Life", the input skips and goes on the next input instead.
When I use; there's no problem. Only when I tried to use nextLine(), is there anyway to resolve this? I'll want the input to be able to assign a string with space
