Crazy as it sounds, my favourite part of a book is the acknowledgements. Not only do you get the tiniest of insights into the writer, you also see that a real person has wrote the book. A person who, like me, has sat at a computer, has had people swirling around their mind in a non-mental type of way and has sent off their work. For them, it has been sucessful and I hope it will be for me one day.

The acknowledgements are an inspiration to me. I read them, give a little sigh and think 'one day'. One day I might have the chance to thank people for helping me on the road to publication. I'm always disappointed when there isn't an acknowledgement and for some reason, I prefer them to be at the beginning of the book rather than the end (shrugs).

So I would like to thank the writers for thanking those who have helped them. Keep thanking!


  1. It's not just you, I like reading acknowledgements too and feel disappointed if an author doesn't include any.
    I don't always like them at the beginning of the book though. I've read them when they've been at the start before and they've indicated something that was to come in the story which has then ruined it ever so slightly for me.

  2. Ah yes, that would be annoying.

    I think I like at them at the beginning because I'm too impatient to wait until the end of the book.


Please feel free to leave a comment. I appreciate them all. Apart from spam, obviously.
