Hello,Sri! Yes I read the preface of a book as it depicts something about the theme and the author.From the preface we get some facts about the author,his likings and disliking,his tastes etc.thanx.

I always read everything in a book from start to finish including who the book is dedicated to etc as it gives me a lot more information and then I start the book. Each to their own though eh! Ellie :D

Dear friend, In some big novels I do read and moreover when I start reading the novel at more cases I feel boring and stops and just goes through the preface and moreover after reading the preface a certain capacity and may be the standard of the writer could be known.
