FIR '11: Reading Question #5

FIR is hosted by Katrina at Callapidderdays.

Every Wednesday this fall, Katrina will be posting a question about reading.

Today's question:
Do you skim? Or are you faithful to read every word?
I have to admit that I am one of those readers that reads every word on the page the majority of the time - a fact that at times drives my husband nuts because he tends to be a skimmer. I just feel that the words are there for a reason and I therefore need to read them. 
There are times, though, that I do find myself skimming, mostly because either I am not really into the book or because I feel that the author is going on too much with descriptions and I just want to get to the meat of the story. While I very rarely do not finish a book, I find that skimming helps me get through it a little easier. 

What about you? Are you dedicated to reading every word (even the boring ones)? Or have you been known to skim over some passages?


  1. While I do read every word there have been times that I've skimmed.

  2. I read every word of a book, front to back. My stepfather will pick up any book my mom is reading and start where she is drives us both nuts!


Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I love interacting with other book lovers and appreciate any thoughts or feedback! If you read a book after seeing my review, please let me know. Come back and leave me a link to your review so I can read it. Thank you!!!
