Do you read books or magazines from front to back or the other way around back to front? Some culture they read it from back to front right? while me when i read magazines i flip through pages that interest me first, like browse for pictures first then start again from the front to back. what about you?

usually it depends on what type of material i'm reading.if it is a novel, most probably i'll skip first 20-30 pages (at least), if it's a sports magazine, i'll start from tennis or soccer articles, if it's a newspaper, i start from back to front. i also look out for catchy stuffs first in women's magazines.

I read books front to back, but for magazines, I tend to flip around a lot. I will skim through until I find something that catches my interest and read that first. Or if there is an article mentioned on the cover that caught my eye, I will go to that first.

I usually read books from front to back; guess that's typical. But when I read mystery/adventure books and I like the main character so much, and he's in a situation where I haven't the vaguest idea if he'd survive, I couldn't help it but read the very last page to see if he made it. :) When I read mags, though, I first check out the topics and read the ones that interest me.

I am a Filipina just like you so you should know that we read books from the center. LOL. No. We read it from front to back. But I have the habit of reading the back first. The ending. Before I go back to the front and start reading seriously. That is just my style.

I read books from front to back. It's different how I read a magazine. It really depends on what magazine it is. Sometimes I read it like a book, sometimes I only flip through a magazine and read what looks interesting to me, sometimes I read the last site first to see what will be in the next issue (okay, it's not always @ the last site but often),.... it's very various

I read newspapers from back to front. Why? Because when I was younger, that's the part I could get first. My Mom had one part and my Dad had another part. Then when I became old enough to get a job, I read the classifieds (in the back) first. Magazines, sometimes I look back to front because the best stuff if usually in the back or middle. Then if it's a story I start at the beginning and go forward. Books I start in the front and go to the end.

Front to back. And I have to read each and every section no matter what. That's why I always have to make time to read. If I'm in a hurry, and I'm browsing through a fashion mag, I sometimes look at the photos first.
