This week MizB at Should Be Reading's musing asks…
Do you read the ending before you start a book? Do you ever skip ahead to read the ending?
I say, "Now what would be the fun of reading the ending first?" I think it would spoil the whole rest of the book. If I were to read the ending first, then why would I bother reading the rest of the book. No fun there, especially if it is a mystery, since I do love a cozy mystery now and again. The only time I would skip to the end of a book is if it were so boring and I had put in a decent amount of time trying to give the book a chance to redeem itself, and I just can't take it anymore, I will skip to the end to see who done it, or who lived happily ever after, otherwise, I say, "I NEVER read the ending of a book first!"
What do you say? Do you or don't you?
