Booking Through Thursday 3/3/11

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

Ok, I'll come clean.  I have peeked at the end of a book or two.  I've read some books where I just have to know...does so and so live...do Dick and Jane get together....who dunnit?.....  Sometimes the temptation is too great.  I haven't done it lately, but who's to say I won't give in again.  True, it does somewhat ruin the ending, but often the story has held its own despite me.  I shouldn't do it, but we are being honest here.

What about you?  Have you ever flipped to the back of the book to see how it all ends?  Please leave an answer in the comments or a link to yours.  Remember to link back to Booking Through Thursday.


  1. I never peek at the ending of a book. Now If I hate the book, and am not going to finish it, then sometimes I read the last page or two to see how it ended. But, I very seldom do that, if it is so boring I can't stand to read it, I don't really care how it ends.

  2. I admit I've done it too. I hate not knowing something and there are times that I just have to know what happened. My oldest daughter does it too :)

  3. I've been known to peek at an ending now and then, but not usually if I'm enjoying the book. Of course, sometimes the ending is the best part!

  4. sometimes I look ahead, but I don't consider it cheating.

  5. I pretty much do it with all the books I read. But I am really going to try to stop doing it so much.

  6. I came by to check out your theme thursday post and felt the need to answer this :)
    No, I dont peek and I think it reduces the excitement and wait of reading a book.

  7. I peek, not always but quite often: http://mostraum.wordpress.com/2011/03/03/booking-through-thursday-cheating/
