Booking Through Thursday

I saw this meme today and I never tried so I though, why not give it a go! It is similar to FF and the BBH where you're asked a question related to books! This weeks question is:

Do you cheat and peek at the ends of books? (Come on, be honest.)


I actually never cheat, at least not in the last six years or so. I know this sounds like a lie but I did it a couple of times when I was younger and it's always such a disappointment. Because the last page usually doesn't give you a clue at what happened and it does truly ruin a book sometimes if you know the end.


I remember when the last Harry Potter book came out and I started reading. My Mum expected me to cheat so she "locked" the last three chapters + epilogue with tape. I wasn't even planning on cheating, but it does look great in my book to have these little bits of tape in your book!!


So, how about you? Did you ever cheat and with what book?

  1. Hey,
    I usually always look - but your answer just made me realise something that has made me feel a lot better. I never ever once looked at any of the Harry Potter endings when I was reading them. I think it would have ruined them for me if I had. Good to know I do have some self-control, even if it is only a little.
    Sally.

  2. I'm such a cheater but only with print books. I don't do it with my kindle. I'm Harry in that scene from When Harry Met Sally. It probably helps that I don't read a lot of mysteries. I would think that would be very disappointing.

  3. I peek. But, as some other people, a lot less on my Kindle. http://mostraum.wordpress.com/2011/03/03/booking-through-thursday-cheating/

  5. Hee, I love your mum's approach! I was never tempted to skip ahead with the Harry Potter books despite the agonising suspense, I suppose because I knew it would ruin them.
