Rule 6: Add a LEAD-IN that provides CONTEXT to introduce your quotation
"Mrs. Ellis is awesome, she knows a lot about books" (34)
.
Rule 5: Eliminate ending punctuation (EXCEPT for question marks and exclamation points) and put a period after the page number.
"Mrs. Ellis is awesome, she knows a lot about books

"Mrs. Ellis knows so much about books; isn't she awesome

Mrs. Ellis is awesome, she knows a lot about books

Mrs. Ellis is awesome, she knows a lot about books
