Skipping

btt button

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?


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!

  6. Thinking of how I skip parts sometimes so I thought I’d join (for the first time after watching this meme for awhile). I’m looking forward to meeting you all and reading your responses. Here’s mine:

  7. I don’t. If I do accidentally – if I am flipping through pages to stick in a backup bookmark or read the author’s bio – and I catch something, I feel horrible!
