Booking Through Thursday: Week #1

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly book blogging meme, that asks a question a week, mostly related to books and/or reading.  This weeks question is: 

'Do you skip ahead in a book?  Do you feel badly about it when you do?'

As much as I don't want to admit it, sometimes when I'm reading a book that is either boring, or I'm on a chapter that I find to be boring, I'll skip ahead to the next chapter, see how many pages that chapter is, and then usually read the last sentence of that chapter.  It's a habit I need to stop, because sometimes I end up reading something that I didn't want to read (spoilers will be the death of me, I swear).

It's only books that have caught me from the beginning, and continue to pull me in paragraph after paragraph that I don't look at other chapters/read ahead, because I'm so engrossed in the novel already.
