This Week’s Question
Have you ever skipped ahead to read the ending?
Submitted by Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer.
Oh, absolutely not! I like to keep myself in suspense! Though I have noticed that, lately, if the suspense gets too intense, I find myself putting the book down more frequently. Because I’m worried and the worry makes me so uncomfortable I need to take a break 😅😂 In those instances what I usually do is skip ahead a few pages just to get a tiny bit of relief, but I wouldn’t skip all the way to the end.
Now, that’s to say that I’ve never done it before. I used to do it all the time when it came to required reading in school. Especially if I was particularly bored by a book. I did it with Great Expectations because I just could not be bothered to actually read that entire book. I was just so bored. It wasn’t like an active hatred like I have for The Scarlet Letter, but I had so many other things I would rather do at that point in my life that sit and read a book that made me want to sleep as soon as I opened it.
I’ve also glanced at the ending for a book that I was enjoying, but knew I wouldn’t be too fussed about knowing the end result because I wasn’t loving it, ya know? Like, it was a solid three star, but I would probably forget it as soon as I was done reading. I don’t tend to get as invested in those books, so a quick look at the ending doesn’t bother me.
Other than that, though, NO PEEKING!
