comment MLA format for a book summary
In any case, my question may have been new: "I feel like if I were to properly cite this, I would have to end every sentence with a page number in parentheses. Is this not the case?" Maybe the handbook covers this situation, in which case I have caused it to be transferred to the internet, and it was much more convenient to ask you folks who have become experts either by reading the handbook or hearing from other experts. Also please note I have since graduated, and even though it's @what's opinion against my own, I am not your average "lazy" student, if the average student is in fact lazy.

@what Books suffer from their own medium, printed paper. To locate something you have to scan over a table of contents or an index; to correct something, the publisher must reprint and release errata and new versions. For color images, color ink must be used. For animations, diagrams and frame-by-frame slideshows must suffice. Students realize this and use books alongside the internet, both being tools for obtaining knowledge. Why is it less valid to read something on the internet than in a book? The author of the MLA handbook is just as anonymous to me in book form than in internet form.
