Regarding this, do all books have to have chapters?
In modern times, not all books have chapters. Most nonfiction books which naturally have sections, such as different historical periods in a history textbook, do still have chapters. Most fiction novels also have chapters, although some comparatively recent books have a modernist deconstruction of chapters.
How many chapters are in a book?
If you take the advice on book length, then a 50,000 word book might break nicely into ten chapters — about 5,000 words per chapter.
How do you write the title of a chapter?
Use italics in a word-processed document for the types of titles you'd underline if you were writing by hand. A general rule of thumb is that within the text of a paper, italicize the title of complete works but put quotation marks around titles of parts within a complete work.
