Musing Mondays – November 19, 2012

on November 19, 2012


This week’s musing asks…

Do you read the ending before you start a book?  Do you ever skip ahead to read the ending?

My answer:  No!  I never do this!  I have never even been tempted to do this.  It would ruin the entire reading experience.

There have been times when I have opened a book to a random spot and read a page or two.  Even that – I try not to do anymore.  I don’t like having pre-conceived ideas of what that page or two I have read, might mean to the actual plot or tell me about a certain character.  You can NOT un-read something once it has been read!  At least I can’t.

If I am in a bookstore, deciding if I am going to buy a book – I will read the back of the book or the inside flap… once in a while I will even start reading the book but always reading the prologue or the first page – first.  Nothing gets ruined that way.  No pre-conceived, often wrong notions or leads.

For me, the reading experience is too sacred to mess with.  There will be NO peeking to the back of any books for me!

    I’m a total book junkie & I did used to sneak ahead in books sometimes. Having a Kindle cured me of that, as it’s just more of a faff to try sneak a peak at the end.
