Do you ever look ahead to see what happens at the end of the book?

Sometimes, I'm almost ashamed to admit, I read the last chapter (well, the epilouge) to Harry Potter 7 before I read the first chatper.

I have to admit that the ONLY book I've done that to was Breaking Dawn. I read the last two pages because I was paranoid that what I wanted to happen wouldn't have happened.. satisfied I told myself that I'd be ok reading the rest of it I feel like such a cheater & wimp for doing that...

I don't read ahead. I won't let myself despite the temptation to do so. I do find that if I really want to find out what happens at the end, I skim much more just so I can get to the end.

I've done that, too. Especially lately. If the book is slow-going, I'll check to see how many pages are left before I can be done!

I will cheat sometimes, not every book, but some books I just have to know. Breaking Dawn was one of them. I couldn't handle NOT knowing.

I have NEVER skipped ahead. If I'm that strung out to see what happens I'll just stay up all night reading (or turn on a movie for DD if it's daytime!)
