Reading the Preface

Now, over at IVP’s Addenda & Errata Dan Reid, who always reads the preface, wrote a post wagering a copyright page that the vast majority of his readers are also preface readers.

I’ll admit it, I do. Everybook.

But the question is, what other more unusual parts of the book do you read?

Does anyone read the Aknowledgements?

What about the Abbreviation list?

The Index?


Copyright page?

Cateloguing information?

Okay, so I read all of these a lot of the time…
