Hi, When i like a abstract or introduction of a book, i always bought it? But unfortunately, i often just read one or two times and leave it away without read throught it. Do you experience this very often? Look forward to you sharing! Happy mylotting!

I can not say I have many experiences like that because I don’t buy many books recently. But it did happen before, especially when I was in my student ages. I bought books but sometimes I did not read it. These books became decorations. Sometimes I just enjoyed the feeling I own a book. So I can not say I’m a real reader. I realised my habit and also considered now books are so expensive, so I just borrow books from local library. It’s more economical. In general I can keep a book for at least three months. So the time is enough for me to finish the reading.

Hi, Yes, those books became decorations. Just like you, i also realize that i am not a good reader and i buy fewer books than before. Not like you, i do not read books at all. In recent, i had to bought a english grammar book, as i had make mistakes on grammar very often and my boss suggest me buy the book for grammar improving. But after i bought the book, i read no more than one hour to now. Happy mylotting!

actually if i read books i started at the back then skip some pages and check the middle. if i find it very nice and interesting or if the ending is great then thats the only time i will read them from the start. but most of the time i will skip some pages and jump to the next chapter coz im so excited to find out whats the next. though if i dont like the ending, no matter how lovely the cover of the book is or the title i dont really bother to read.

Hi homeshoppers, The ending of a back or a story is always the attractive thing we mostly care about. When we start a book, i always want to know the ending or the answer, if is intersting enough. But my problem is there are few books that are attractive enough.I always do not read through the books.

I love reading and whenever I buy a book from a store, I make sure to read the back of the book, the summary as it is said to be, so I get a short introduction about what the book is mainly about. And then I decide to buy the book. I will definitely read the whole of it though, However there are also some books which I do not read the back of it but I just see the authors name and then buy it. I have a collection of books by some very good writers at home so I do not need to see the summary at the back of the book as I already know how the authors writes.

Hi med, That is really a good habit. You are a good reader. Keep doing that, as it is very helpful. In contrast, i am not. Maybe it is because that i am naturely not good at reading. And sometimes, i even consider books as lullaby except those Wuxia novals. I like those books, as it is attractive. Happy mylotting!
