joined the Fall Into Reading Challenge hosted over at Callapidder Days. She is posing a question each week, and this week's question is:
Do you skim? Or are you faithful to read every word?
Well, I tend to be a very thorough reader. I guess it's that streak of perfectionism I keep trying to get rid of but never do! I generally read every word. The only times I can think when I may have skimmed something would be either re-reading a book (like before a book group discussion of something I read a while back) or perhaps skimming a nonfiction book that I only need certain information from. Even when I read magazines, I read them from front to back thoroughly! I know, it's a sickness.
I try to choose my books carefully, so I rarely dislike one so much that I can't finish. I have - rarely - read a book for one of my book groups that was so bad I couldn't finish it, but usually I give it a try.
How about you? Do you skim or read every word?
