    How do you Read?

    So as I was perusing a few of the longer threads on the board, I realized that I tend to read them as I do books: I read the first page, then skip to the last. Then I go back and read what's in the middle to see how points A and B connect. With books, I read a chapter or two, then skip ahead and come back. I've done this ever since I was a kid... and I even did it with the most recent Harry Potter book (I actually misread a bit toward the end and thought someone who didn't die did, and the character who did die hadn't).

    So do you read straight through, or skip around?

    Re: How do you Read?

    Skipping around like that would confuse me
    I start at 1 or wherever I left off. If there are many many pages between A and B, I'll skip some. Or read them if it's interesting and I have time.
    If it's already long, I'll just read the last few pages... I'll go back if I need to.

    I always want to skip ahead in books but don't... If you know how it ends, why bother reading the rest? Once I've read a book, I won't reread it, with a few exceptions
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Straight through. Sometimes I'll try and just read the last page, but end up interested and I go on from the start.

    Because personally, I enjoy seeing how "Harry woke up in his small cupboard underneath the stairs" ends up as "Harry was the school's Quidditch champion." I like seeing where it will finish, and then watching the journey to get from the start to the end.

    Re: How do you Read?

    I usually read the first couple of posts...sometimes I skim through some, but I never read the whole thread when it's 3+ pages long.

    I read books page by page, I don't skip ahead, but h'm a very fast reader. I read the stand in 3 days. I used to read the sweet valley high books in one evening. (when I was in jr high/high school)

    Magazines...I skip around in..

    Re: How do you Read?

    Start to finish. Because I'm rarely "in the know", as it were, for a lot of the lounge threads, I have to read everything to even have an inkling of what's going on.

    It was ridiculous when I would go a few days (weeks...er...months) without stoppin by. I was sooooo confused when I finally made it back. I'm finally starting to feel like I know something.

    and the stars come out,
    I'll look up on her behalf.
    I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

    Re: How do you Read?

    I read left to right.

    Unless it's Japanese (sometimes), or many manga published today, in which case I'll probably be reading right to left.

    I don't know anything (regarding lounge topics)...I don't want to. I just read what interests me and if it doesn't I move on...

    So do you read straight through, or skip around?

    depending on the subject manner, and how long the threads happen to be... shorter... like a book... longer... skip around... if it is anything that intrigues my interest particularly so and is long, like a book...
