Booking Through Thursday
I saw this article the other day that asked, “Are you ashamed of skipping parts of books?” Which, naturally, made me want to ask all of YOU.
Do you skip ahead in a book? Do you feel badly about it when you do?
I try not to skip, since, as a writer myself, I know the effort, the hard work, that goes into every phrase written. However, when I find myself falling asleep in the middle of a three-page long description of the sky, I will beg forgiveness from the Gods of Literature and jump ahead.
