Book loving, avid reading moms, do you ever...

Read the last page or chapter first? Lol, my crazy mom, the person who helped develop my intense love of books, has an odd habit of reading the end first. I have no idea why - she's just kookie.

I do not. Unless the book is really boring and I can't imagine getting through it unless I know the end gets better.

  • "Choose your own adventure" books when I was a kid, kinda the same thing where you have to jump around alot to get through the story then you can always go back and choose a different path or ending LOL

    -------------------------

    That is so NOT the same thing! LOL

  • No I don't. I force myself to read books even if I'm not liking it because I hate to leave it unfinished.

  • Nope. I want to enjoy finding things out in order, not knowing what's going to happen next. Or to be reading and thinking "well, I know she buys a house at the end, so obviously she survives this butcher knife wielding madman." That would make the book boring to me.

  • I've only done that a couple of times, & it was when I was reading a book I really couldn't stand.

  • Nope. I do not and if the book is boring I just quit reading it.

  • No way! That would spoil the whole point of reading the book and the suspense.

  • No ... I read mostly thriller type books and reading the ending would ruin the rest of the book.
