Daily Ruminations: Day 21 – Prologues

Prologues: I’ve never written anything with a prologue, so I’m uninformed on this subject, but I just read an article that says most readers skip them. I can’t image skipping the beginning of a book for any reason. I mean, where else am I going to begin? If I skip it, there’s a big possibility that I won’t understand something further in.
What are your thoughts on prologues? Why do you think that some readers feel they don’t need that information without reading it first?
