Making Up For Monday: Can't Wait for the Ending
It's time for Making Up For Monday!
This week's question: Do you read ahead or skip pages?
I was talking to my sister one day about a book. I asked if she was surprised by the ending and she said "Not really; I read the last page." Apparently this is something she does with every book. She reads the last page so she knows where the book is going. I thought it was absurd, but when I mentioned it to my book club, I discovered she was not alone. Many people read ahead.
I am not one of those people. I don't want to know where the book is going. I want to take the journey the author intended for me to take, in the correct order.
What about you? Do you read ahead? If so, why?
