# Remove unnecessary blank page after creating an appendix

• Declaring appendices, an unnecessary blank page is created immediately after. Leaving a 1-page break before the first appendix!?
• How can this blank page be removed.
• MWE below.

\documentclass[twoside]{book}
\usepackage[toc,page]{appendix}

\begin{document}
\begin{appendices}
\section{My first section}
\end{appendices}
\end{document}

Add \makeatletter\@openrightfalse\makeatother to the preamble.
\csname @openrightfalse\endcsname would also work, but is not really that much shorter ;-) –  Martin Scharrer May 27 '12 at 18:11
