A Minor Pet Peeve

booksI’m cracking open new textbooks today, starting to dive into the wonders of Trusts & Estates, Taxation, Business Organizations, and Secured Transactions. I’ve never understood why some textbooks reset page numeration at the beginning of a chapter. At first blush it would seem logical enough; when you are trying to flip to page 9-24, if you hit page 7-12 you know that you’ve got to flip only a few pages over to get to Chapter 9, right? Well, what happens if Chapter 8 is 63,000 pages long? You have no idea for how far you have to flip.

It’s not really that big of a deal, I just thought it something odd and worthy of sharing on a Saturday morning.
