Reading the Last Page


Reading the Last Page

I read a lot. Upwards of three books a week. This is not great literature, but adventure and mystery novels. It’s one step above TV, but at least my brain and eyes have to DO something to take in the information.

I have gotten in to the habit of reading the last page of the book after I’m about a third of the way through. That way I can find out if the hero gets the girl, etc.  This is a bad idea.

In my most recent attempt, I checked out the last page and found myself reading about the funeral of the girl. HUH.  So the hero gets the girl and now she’s dead. Who wants to read about that.

Its a good book and I’m enjoying it. But I know that it will have a sad ending. So I’ve lost interest. I have started a new book, and will NOT read the last page in this one. Maybe.
