Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme mostly about books and reading. This weeks question is...
Do you ever skip ahead in books? If you do, do you ever feel guilty afterwards?

Good question!
Of course I've skipped through books, and depending on what it is, I sometimes feel guilty. But I will NEVER skip through a book that I'm reviewing, no matter how tedious it may feel to dig through, every book deserves an honest rating.  The good and bad parts, so if I skip through, there's no way I can accurately tell what I thought, because I didn't experience the whole thing. And that trickles down into the fact that authors look for these honest reviews, and expect us to tell them what we enjoyed and disliked as a reader so they can grow as a writer and get stronger and write even better in their upcoming novels. You just can't do that when you skip ahead!

As for school assignments, of COURSE I skim through and skip ahead. Which doesn't make me feel guilty, just ends up being me cheating me and my own education. Which sounds awful, but hey, I'm here on this blog to be honest. And I'm sorry, but some of these school books can put you straight to sleep!

What about you guys? Do you skim thorugh books or skip ahead?

I totally skip. I don't waste my time on books that don't hold me interest. I read for entertainment :)
