Why don't you use import java.util.Scanner;

A small program to get you started:

import java.io.*;

public class Test
    public static void main(String[] args)
            BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in));
            String userInput = in.readLine();
            System.out.println("\n\nUser entered -> " + userInput);
        catch(IOException e)
            System.out.println("IOException has been caught");

The same way you're reading the doubles, but without the parsing, of course.
