Why did you buy that book? Because of the first page?
. . . They read it to get to the end.
If it’s a letdown, they won’t buy any more.
The first page sells that book.
The last page sells your next book.
— Mickey Spillane
Do you agree with Mr. Spillane? Do you read the first page before you buy a book? Have you ever bought a book because of the last page of a book?
