Another thing to check is the first paragraph format for the pagination
start setting (Paragraph Designer->Pagination tab). It should not be set to
start at top of a specific page.

While very true (you can't have a piece of paper with only one face,
at least not without applying a hefty dose of quantum physics) this
shouldn't affect the book from chapter to chapter IF the book file has
its own settings and is not inheriting pagination from the files.

Double check the book file's pagination settings and make sure you
have nothing in there that would possibly specify a consistently even
pagination. No set starting page side, no "make page count even", etc.
