>>books.add("Band of Brothers", "Ambrose", "Stephen E.", 10, 9.60);
 
should probably be
books.add(new Book("Band of Brothers", "Ambrose", "Stephen E.", 10, 9.60));

CEHJ is corect:

this should be changed:

books.add(new Book("Band of Brothers", "Ambrose", "Stephen E.", 10, 9.60));

You should be creating the new bean before you add it to ArrayList.
