  Billy's Answer

I'm sure I've skipped ahead to read the ending of a book at least once or twice, though no specific title comes to mind right now. I don't want to make it a habit since it eliminates the suspense and mystery of the "denouement."

  1. I don't think I've ever skipped ahead. I've maybe felt the temptation, but that usually just made me want to just keep reading. I do agree that it would completely take the suspense out of reading a book! Thanks for hosting and have a lovely weekend :)

  2. I do skip ahead sometimes and take a quick peek at the end. Usually in fantasy novels to check that the author hasn't killed anybody off that I care about.

  3. What Janette said. If a book is really, really suspenseful, I might sneak a tiny peek to make sure a character I care about makes it out okay. But that doesn't happen very often. I usually just stay up past my bedtime to see what happens!

  4. I've never really done this myself. Because yeah, spoilers. Lol. I do occasionally flip to see how many pages are left in the chapter or til the end of the book to determine if I'm track to finishing it by a certain date or whatever. But never for spoilery reasons.

    Here's my BBH

    Have a GREAT day!

  5. I used to skip ahead when I was younger. I would then still read everything up to the end to see how it came to pass. I don't do it now - unless I see something on the last page when I am looking to see how many pages the book has.

  6. I agree with you about the suspense and mystery! :-)

  7. I skip ahead when I'm bored and a book feels like a slog. My tbr is too full to drag myself through because a book isn't interesting me. I'd rather get it over with quickly and move on to the next adventure.

  8. I do this a lot, if I’m curious if something will work out in the plot or when I’m buying books and not sure if I’ll like it enough to buy it

  9. I may skim to get to the end, but I have never purposely read the ending pages before I was done.

    I usually skim when the book is not something I am enjoying.

  10. I know people do this, but I just can't see why.
