Question – When You Re-Read a Book, Do You Read It Cover to Cover?
This week’s Question is a mix of my ‘skimming’ Question and my ‘re-reading a scene’ Question. I decided to ask about skimming while re-reading a whole book.
As I admitted, I often skim descriptive paragraphs when the book is getting extra exciting but I skim even more when I re-read a book. Well…I should say that I skim most books when I do a re-read. Did I skim the Fever books by Karen Marie Moning when I re-read them before Shadowfever was released? No because it’s amazing how many details that I had forgotten. Heck, it’s amazing how many details Karen was able to cram in those books! Did I skim while re-reading the Black Dagger Brotherhood series? Yes. Yes I did. Does anyone re-read Phury’s book from cover to cover, really? But did I skim while re-reading Lover Mine? Nope. Love that book! Most re-reads, I skim. It’s funny but I mostly skim the sex scenes when I re-read. Not all of them, not the especially hot ones, but most because my favorite part of any book is the dialogue and the interaction between the characters and I am not talking about “oh baby, more more, harder harder” kind of dialogue and interaction. *grin*
So that’s me. How about you? When you re-read a book, do you read it cover to cover?
