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.

  • I'm like you. I'll only read the end first if the book is terribly boring.

  • My sister does that! Drives me bug nutty. Defeats the purpose to me. I like to go with the flow of the story and watch it unfold--no spoilers.....
