You see that the text alignment (left or right), is automatic depending on recto or verso achieved by the paragraph style using Towards the Spine. The idea of any notes is that it is supplementary information and it is entirely optional that the reader even bothers to look, so setting in a style that does not distract from the flow of the reading experience is important.Footnotes are best numbered with an outdented figure, although (for technical reasons) the numbers are most often aligned to the main text block.

Robert Bringhurst doesn't need to bother with those little superscript numbers because the supplementary information is very much nearby for the reader.Still, tradition dictates that in some books, there are footnotes and some there are endnotes (either at the end of the chapter or the end of the book).
Brody McAlister, the elusive and smoking hot gym boy, has finally recovered from his divorce three years ago. He rescues her and realizes she can help his brothers protect the immortal and mortal worlds.
A crime reporter, a cop, and an expert in transplant rejection try to determine which government agency can be trusted and how high the conspiracy goes.
Most publishers will favour the numbers to begin again for each chapter, otherwise the numbers could get unweildy (superscript numbers of more than two digits could look ugly).
Let's face it, book design and usability does not often win-out over commercial considerations. Where footnotes are long, they can be split across more than one page, although this will compromise the usability somewhat.EndnotesNotes are often placed at the end of the chapter or even at the end of the book (before the index). There's something mesmerizing about the way Lake Superior ties together the stories of the three women at the heart of this book, separated by a span of several hundred years. Lots of space for the text to breath.How I dislike some books that give me less than a centimetre of margin.

This approach means that the reader will need to 'hunt down' the note referred to in the text. For each, the Lake holds stories and knowledge that they're not exactly looking for; for each, their fortune and that of their families is is the perfect book to read on a cold Minnesota evening - evokes the smell of ice, the bleached-out color of rock and tree, the particular push-pull of the wind.
It got me to stay up and read it all day till three in the morning when I finally finished it! This usually means that the endnotes will be sectioned by chapter or section.The advantage of endnotes is that the page composition in the vertical plane is not compromised for the sake of the note space.
For each, the Lake holds stories and knowledge that they're not exactly looking for; for each, their fortune and that of their families is tied to the water, what it gives, and what it takes. Ridiculous as this seems, we have seen books with footnotes that take more page space than the main text itself!Sidenotes (sometimes called Margin Notes)Clearly the page layout needs to provide the space in the margins for this to be an option. I found Grey Rabbit's story the most compelling - when I realized what her dreams meant, I was gut-punched. Nora's was, to me, the least absorbing story, perhaps because I had no real sense of where she came from, or what made her - Grey Rabbit's opposite.The stories of the women are beautiful, stirring, and fascinating. Who cares about a test anyway?:D (Its good that she wasn't there and a test was next day) But seriously I couldn't stop reading it! Took a while for me to warm up to long separated but newly divorced Savannah, from Savannah Georgia, but no time at all for me to adore Brody. What didn't work for me so well were the single-page interjections of an italicized narrator.
In this we can set the way the references are displayed in the text (superscript etc), and how the footnotes appear at the bottom of the page. He’s talented, intelligent, charming, affectionate, achingly sweet and knows what he wants. It's hard to fathom that narrator's purpose before finding out whose voice we're listening to, and once we know, it's hard to imagine that person speaking that way.
We need a paragraph style set up for the display of the footnotes themeselves and we can (optionally), use a character style for the reference figure in the text.As you can see from the first example spread the footnote list figure is aligned to the left edge of the text box. I'd have found the book just as - if not more - absorbing without it.Laura (booksnob) Mar 29, 2012Three women across three different centuries, who live on the shores of Lake Superior, feel the power of The Long-Shining Waters.
You will often see this in the books on your shelves, however, a more attractive arrangement is to 'outdent' these listed figures so that the footnotes are are aligned to the text and the figures are offset from this text box.InDesign does not provide the means to set footnotes outside the text box, so we need to plan for this by indenting all of the text inside the text box by an amount that we then remove from the left margins.
Lake Superior reflects a strong mysterious presence on the women as they travel through the individual days of their lives. Nora owns a bar and when her livelihood is destroyed she finds herself on a journey around the Lake. You will see from the image provided here that we are using guides to make sure that these items align.

The one that I use here is called 'convert footnotes to (dynamic) endnotes' – meaning that the numbering will change if further notes are added.As always when using scripts to change content, save your work first! Scripts will often run through a long sequence of actions; you can always use 'revert' (from the file menu), to get back to the previous. I mean it was really really good, the kind of good that makes you forget everything and just keep reading it! You will see from the image here that the endnotes have their own page(s) with a heading that matches other heading styles. If you read a description, it doesn't really give out much, there is soo much more to the story! Grey Rabbit is an Ojibwe woman in 1622 who has powerful dreams that affect her waking life. Using these we can control the width and position as the footnotes are converted to side notes. All three of these women are connected through time and place.The theme of connection is powerful. Then there were the witty phrases, like…”wondering when her cheese slipped off her cracker”.
As Nora drives around the largest lake in the world, the readers makes connections to the three women and their influence on each other. I really through that I can never read a book with liking ALL of the characters in the book. The past and present converge in The Long-Shining Waters to create a timeless, meaningful piece of literature.Lake Superior is a character unto itself that demands respect.
But heck this book proved me wrong because I honestly liked all of the characters, even the creepy evil ones!
But not so…this is more than just a contemporary romance it’s a family story with the theme of letting the past go and embracing the future as it pertains to several of the story’s players. The imagery is beautiful and draws the reader in, like the lake draws people to it shores.Each woman in the story is faced with a personal tragedy that she will struggle to overcome. Gee Apr 11, 2013Let It Go by Brooklyn James I was asked to do a review for Let It Go and at the time it just so happened that it was next on my TBR list so of course I said yes. So I was saying he showed his sweet, sensitive, charming side, but than again there was a dark, not so sweet, kind of a jerk side, and a total bad-ass side. I had heard of Brooklyn James’ earlier novel The Boots My Mother Gave Me and remember it being very popular so I was quite keen to get into Let It Go.This story follows Savannah Bondurant, a marriage and relationship columnist for the Savannah Sun Times and Brody McAlister, the elusive and smoking hot gym boy.
Meanwhile, she’s having wicked dreams starring dead children and it’s messing with her psyche.
His bipolar character really surprised me, in a good way, because I actually liked it(; I laughed a lot in this book, especially the eye conversations between Eli and Ember. Savannah has just signed hLet It Go by Brooklyn James I was asked to do a review for Let It Go and at the time it just so happened that it was next on my TBR list so of course I said yes.

She’s waking at odd times, wandering around, being extra protective of her younger son Little CeIt’s 1622, It’s 1902, It’s 2000 in Danielle Sosin’s debut novel “The Long-Shining Waters,” the story of three women living on Lake Superior.Grey Rabbit lives with her two sons, husband and mother-in-law in the winter of 1622 on the shore of Lake Superior and it’s been rough hunting and everyone is starving. Savannah has just signed her divorce papers and Brody has finally recovered from his divorce three years ago. She’s waking at odd times, wandering around, being extra protective of her younger son Little Cedar. Add to that a pesky ex husband, a socialite cougar, along lost brother and older advice giving sisters and you get this novel which explores the notion of moving on after divorce.Firstly, I really liked the main characters, especially Savannah.
She is intelligent and dedicated to her work which points out that there is nothing wrong with a women having a high demand career.
We also see her be extremely mature about her divorce and even though we have her ex husband Jack being extremely immature she still holds her own and is able to keep her maturity in tact.We first see Brody described as the smoking hot gym boy and so I expected him to be just another ‘jock’ character, however he was far from it.
But suddenly there is a turnaround, Gunnar is doing his darndest to revive the relationship and it’s really taking.
In Brody we see kindness and a lot of charisma, whilst at the same time having a playful and sexy side. He is hard working, yet still family orientated.Overall I think that once you put the elements of her job as a columnist, two divorcees and a lot of people willing to give advice you get a novel that acts as what I would call a modern day relationship guide. It was a man with a wedding ring and when Gunnar considers the family that is waiting at home for this man to return, it sparks a change in his own relationship. I found that a lot of material in the novel was examining relationships and the do’s and don’ts for life after divorce. There was the growing of the relationship and often a steamy sex scene or two but refreshingly at the same time I found that we were constantly learning about society and our interaction with each other.Whilst there is that serious side to the novel, it also incorporates alot of humour especially through the secondary characters. There is the comfort of regulars, including an older woman who lives in the apartment upstairs and plays piano in the middle of the night. I have to says that every scene he appeared in had my in fits of laughter, every time I saw him call her Raven Queen I just had to smile. I think the sisters were perfectly written and the relationship between all three of them reminded me of a real life family.An issue that I had with the novel was the secondary characters’ POVs. Throughout the novel the POV changed very quickly between characters and sometimes I found it a little hard to keep up with who’s head we happened to be in at the time. In between the stories there are slices of prose poetry, seemingly the voice of the lake itself.
I did like the side story of Tami Lynn and Scary Larry, however I don’t know whether a POV from each character was necessary.
This is a super visual novel about the power of the lake and the way it attracts people and affects dreams and can be both so beautiful and giving and oh-so cruel. The only other thing I found to be odd was how much infidelity seemed to be in this novel, I know that it seems to be an issue in modern society, but here I found that every time we turned a corner someone was cheating.Lastly I just want to mention the ‘shag shirt’, I did not know what this was and didn’t know that people actually wear their ‘shag shirt’ to work the next day so I definitely found this hilarious! None of these stories really have a finale or come to a resolution, any more than Nora deciding that she doesn’t want to be a cake decorator when she returns from her journey. All in all I really enjoyed this novel and loved all the knowledge that James gave us on modern day society.
So this is very slice of life-y, just peeking in the window and catching the stories of three women who are about to experience something life-changing. A lot of the things I thought would happen didn’t, but isn’t to say those things won’t happen off the page. Yeah there is but it’s not the traditional one, I would describe it more as a natural ending and opens up all possibilities for the future. Part of the fun of this book is reading something set on my home turf written by someone who has regularly walked on this turf and spent plenty of time looking around.
Brooklyn James you have created a beautiful novel and I will be keen to see what other adult contemporary romances you come up with!! It feels well-researched and considered, though that does get in the way occasionally when the facts detract from the inner stories of the women. It seems like maybe Sosin, who reportedly took nine years to write this book, spent her time really living in the character’s heads -- if not actually setting up a camp along the shore and living as Berit or Grey Rabbit for awhile, or taking a drive around the lake. Regardless, her version of Northeastern Minnesota is a nice reprieve from the generic Duluth that sometimes makes a cameo in fiction about another place.
Sosin also serves as a historical guide, giving a face a voice to the lives of people who were here before us -- the lake as a unifying factor.
I would have liked a bit more resolution to some of the stories, but then, life doesn't work that way, does it -- so why should literature? As she travelled on her journey, she learned history, which led her back to her home & family, more able to deal with recent tragedy. The lake also emerges as a living entity itself, holding centuries of secrets and souls.I enjoyed the alternating points of view, the strong sense of place, and the intimate portrait painted of a brief period in each woman's life. The ending of each woman's narrative leaves lots of room for interpretation and discussion.
At times I found the frequent use of sentence fragments and occasional lack of transition between thoughts a bit distracting, but that's a minor quibble.
And the amount of times she stares at the enemy (who is totez hawt!) rather than running away is ridiculous, too.
Apparently it's appealing to have a heroine who is the embodiment of dumb and a love interest who is the embodiment of crazy fucking psychopath.
