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 don't ever do this. I really don't understand it. If the book is boring at the beginning I don't care how it ends.

  • Never. I like to let the story unfold, and be surprised.

  • I never ever do this but I have known people who do. What's the point, lol?

  • I have done it once or twice. I don't make a habit of it. They were both books that were recommended and they took FOREVER to get interesting. They were both worth the read, just don't remember the names of the books.

  • Back in high school I'd read the first chapter of a book, then the last page, then the rest of the book. Why? I couldn't tell you now. I don't do that anymore though.

  • I never do. That spoils what could possibly be a good book.

    Answer by Simplicity3 at 11:48 AM on Jun. 5, 2012

  • No i've never done that, I have occasionally skipped a chapter or two if the book is really hard to get through, or like in The Game of Thrones series where each chapter is about one character, I will be really into that character's story so skip ahead to the next chapter on them (usually several chapters ahead) but then always come back to where i was... kwim? Oooh and I really used to like those "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
