Dedications, thanks, prologues, epilogues - do you read these?When you start a book, before the actual content begins, there may be a nice, short dedication to a person or people known to the author. Following this may be a page where a brief thank-you message will be printed. Then comes a prologue that is generally something that occurred a few years before the setting of the story (or the biographical life). At the end may be an epilogue will also appear.
Whether a hardcover or a paper back How many of you just skip one or all of these? Or do you make it a point to read the text of all of them?
