What is the verbs for book pages? For example, can we say that someone turns a book from page 3 to page 4? Or turn the pages? Thank you very much!

    You are right. You turn pages, you turn to page 4.

  • Thank you ! What I try to express is that some book pages are stiff and difficult to be turned.

    Apart from that, you can try; Flip through the pages and go through the leaves of the book

    Yes, use turn. But we turn "[from page X] to page Y" or we can "turn the page". We don't *"turn the book" :) Commented Oct 29, 2015 at 8:52
