How do you cite a book page in a paragraph?

How do you cite a book page in a paragraph?

When you quote or paraphrase from a source (book, article, or webpage) in your paper, you need to insert a parenthetical citation. This citation typically consists of the author’s name, year of publication, and page number in parentheses at the end of the sentence. This is a direct citation (Chapman, 2019, p. 126).

How do you number pages in a book?

When a book is opened, pages on the right hand side (known as recto) should always have an odd page number (1, 67, 213)whereas pages on the left hand side (known as verso) should always have an even page number (2, 68, 214). Not adhering to this standard will have a negative impact on the appearance of the book.

How do you read page numbers in a quote?

Do not use quotation marks around it; the double indenting shows it is quoted material. End the quote with its appropriate punctuation mark, and after that, inside parentheses, give the last name of the author and the page number or range without a comma. No period comes after the parentheses.
