When reading do you read every word? Do you ever skip chapters or skim over parts? (question courtesy of Wendy)
I generally read (or listen to!) every word. Sometimes I even reread passages or pages to savor the phrasing or to make sure I remember the idea.
Do I ever skim? How's this for an answer? Depends! I never, ever skip chapters or pages, but I do sometimes skim. Here are the top three situations in which I find myself moving quickly across the pages:
⇒ When I start to lose interest in a book but I want to know what happens.
⇒ When I'm in a really exciting part of a book and I want to know what happens.
⇒ When there is a long poem or song.
How about you? Do you read every word? Do you skim?
