I didn't think you were a slacker. I have had plenty of papers to do at times when I did not have time to read the book, and sometimes I was just not in the right state of mind for reading.
I know what you mean about the page numbers. For some books, you can search Google Books and see a preview in which it's possible to do a word search and find the pages that have the word you searched for. I tried that with this book for you, but the book preview was not available through Google Books.
