Booking Through Thursday - Skipping

This week's question...

I saw this article the other day that asked, “Are you ashamed of skipping parts of books?” Which, naturally, made me want to ask all of YOU.

Do you skip ahead in a book? Do you feel badly about it when you do?

My answer...

Since I mainly read suspense and mystery these days, I don't skip ahead. I like to get caught up in a story and be surprised as it evolves. When reading romances, I might skip a few paragraphs now and then (usually if the love scenes get too intense - LOL), but I never skip to the end of the book or anything like that. It ruins things for me if I know how it's going to end.

  2. Oh, I'm currently reading a very suspenseful book, in which I want to shield my eyes from glancing ahead...because around a very unexpected corner, there might be the clue we've been waiting for....

  3. Interesting question. The only time I skip ahead is if it's gruesome. Other than that, I don't skip.
    Awww Cute pic!

  4. If the steamy love scenes get to steamy, I pitch the book, I don't even skip to the end to see the ending.

    The picture is a cutie. Love it.

  5. I enjoyed reading your answer.

  6. Good point!! There are some romantic scenes I don't want to experience fully - except, well, never mind. Not publicly along with book characters.... well, whatever. *ahem* I AGREE!! My BTT:

  7. Like you, I definitely try not to skip ahead in my mysteries. But there are times...

    Here's my full answer:

  8. I never skip ahead. I just can't bear to do it but I know friends that do and have no qualms about reading the last page of the book. To me that is sacrilege! Ha!

  9. One of these things is not like the other! lol

    And no...I don't skip!
