1. Do you cheat and peek ahead at the end of your books? Or do you resolutely read in sequence, as the author intended?
2. And, if you don’t peek, do you ever feel tempted?
1. Oh dear ... I have to admit that I do - sometimes. (Probably more often than I should!) If it’s a particularly dull book I’ll read the last few pages so that if I give up out of frustration, at least I’ll know how it ends. But usually I only look at the very last page; to assure myself of a happy ending, or out of impatience or idle curiosity. I try to avoid it when reading mysteries, just in case; the villain is generally revealed before then, but there could be something at the end to give it away - or at least to rule some people out! And I never, ever peek at the end of convoluted thrillers, because I don’t want any last-minute twists to be revealed ahead of time (see, I do have some standards!).
It is a habit I’d like to break, since it does feel a lot like cheating - okay, it is cheating. No luck so far, though. Maybe I should enjoy my vice while I still have it :-)
