1. Do you cheat and peek ahead at the end of your books? Or do you resolutely read in sequence, as the author intended?
Please! What do you think? I read in sequence (unless the author has indicated differently). However, when working with an academicly inclined title, I will check for indices and bibliographies first. After browsing through the table of contents.
2. And, if you don’t peek, do you ever feel tempted?
Certainly not! Haven’t peeked at the ending of a book, as this takes away the pleasure of reading. Even when (not even) half-way through the book, I find that I probably will not finish the book, because it simly doesn’t interest me!
