    I am not sure how to go about referencing more than one sentence written from the ideas in a single book. Should i cite the text the idea was drawn from before the end of each sentence, or should i write all the ideas from that book and then cite the author before the final sentence.

    Thanks for any help, and please don't hesistate to ask if my question wasn't clear enough.

    If you are quoting directly then at the end of the sentence you reference like this, (Author, year,page)

    Im not qouting directly. Im paraphrasing a series of ideas from a book written by one author and was wondering how i would do this without citing the author and year after every single sentence.
