Not too long ago a study was released that said reading, or knowing the end of a book would actually not detract, but possibly enhance the reading experience.
As bloggers, we avoid falling into the overly deep play-by-play of a book for fears of falling into the spoiler bear trap. Not that is hasn’t happened, we slipped once but never again.
Still, as a reader, have you ever skipped ahead to the last chapter or the epilogue to catch a glimpse at the story’s conclusion?
If you have jumped to the end, why? Is it raw curiosity? Rapatious anticipation? What was the book and did it alter how you perceived the book?
Maybe you haven’t intentionally read the ending, but have you heard a book’s spoiler and read on? Or maybe you bailed?
Polling the B3 chums and comrades, we were hard pressed to find anyone admitting to spoiling their own read. But we suspect it happens a lot more than people fess up to.
So, what about you, have you skipped ahead to the end?
