I used to be one of those people who didn’t read the acknowledgements page. I’ll reach the last page of the book, see the acknowledgements page, ignore it, then closed the book.
I honestly didn’t think that the acknowledgements page was that important. Before I was a blogger, I thought that the acknowledgements page was the same thing as the dedication page. I honestly still don’t know why I thought that. :P
I actually read the acknowledgements page now.
Why do I read them now? Well, I love reading the acknowledgements and seeing who the author of the particular book I’m reading associates with. It’s a nice surprise to see when they mention authors I know – I personally like seeing authors helping other authors with their books, giving them support, advice, and emotional help.
It’s also sweet to read about how the author’s family supports the author.
What about you? Do you read the acknowledgements page?
