    Just a Little Peek

    I do this when I really want to know what happens, but don't have very much time to read.  I tell myself that I'm only going to take a little peek to satisfy my curiousity, and then I'll put the book away.  But I always end up reading way more than I planned, and before...

    Gettin' Lazy

    ...before i used to read at least 4 books a week. Now i barely read one a fortnight and even get impatient reading that. I skip through to essential plot details and sometimes to the end, then i give up. i wish i could go back to enjoying reading again

    NO!!

    I never, NEVER do that. It spoils the entire book. I didn't learn that way and I'm too old to start now. Anyone who does that to a good book either doesn't REALLY like to read or is lazy. And I have read HUNDREDS in my lifetime. A
