Musing Mondays

When reading do you read every word? Do you ever skip chapters or skim over parts?

It's hardly ever that I skip chapters or skim parts. If the book is really boring and I have to force myself to read it, then yes. Usually when this happens, I'm contemplating putting it down, so I usually jump ahead to see if anything is going to happen. If so, then I'll go back and read the parts I skipped or skimmed. Having said that, I do read every word. When I read, I try to relax and enjoy what I'm reading and really allow myself to become immersed in the book.


  1. If I am skimming too much, I know its time to put the book down.

  2. I agree with Nise'. When my attention starts to wander, I take a break. If that doesn't help, then perhaps it is time to consider finding something better to read.
