[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page numbering

Hi Lori, Cindy and everyone!

I just started proofreading a book for the first time today as I just signed up for volunteering yesterday.

It seems like a bit of guess work in determining where a page is exactly before the page numbering in the book starts. Do I just make my best guess? Also, when I loaded the book into word, I discovered there were a few more pages than what is the number of pages in the book information page. If the number doesn't come out to be exactly the same as what is given in the book information page in the end, will the book be rejected?

I'm proofreading "Love on Its Knees" by Dick Eastman, and thoroughly enjoying reading as I proofread.

That's it exactly. I get so caught up reading I lose track of numbering and then have to go back and look at the last number, etc.

I don't know of any way. Someone once said Word had a way to put the page numbers in automatically. Either I tried it once and it didn't work or I didn't try it.

I do what you do. The only problem with that is that at times I got so involved with the story that I either numbered the same page twice or misnumbered, or forgot to put in a number. I found out because after I finish proofing a book by reading I do a final spell-check and then a final page numbering check, by hitting the page up and down arrows.

Hi all,

At this point I have been adding in page numbers by hand
making sure to have a blink line above and below. I'm
currently working on Douglas Winter's "Clive Barker: Dark
and Fantastic" which is over 600 pages. I'm reading through
it so can add missing numbers by hand, but wanted to ask if
there is another method that I am not aware of besides
manually adding them.

Thanks for help in advance.

Lori
