Happy Birthday, Tom!
It's my big brother's birthday today.
Because I always do what librarians tell me to do, I did this:
1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 23.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the sentence in your journal with these instructions.
Unlike the kind of introduction that may be included in the front matter (see 1.53), a text introduction is integral to the subject matter of the book and should not include acknowledgments, an outline of the contents ("In the first two chapters I discuss..."), or other material that belongs in the front or back matter.Sexy, isn't it?
