ACS style recommends to use the abbreviations for book references.  “p” indicates single page and “pp” indicates multiple pages.  Use space after “p” and “pp”, but do not use a punctuation mark.  However, periodicals didn’t use “p” and “pp” abbreviations for pagination.

For example,

Book pagination

p 57

pp10-15

pp 5, 10, 23
