I usually get disinterested to books when I know know the ending or how the story goes. But there are books which i also like to read again and again. are you like this or is it just me?

I do continue on reading a book even when I already figured what was going to happen in the end. Its out of habit I suppose or I just wanted to see if there was any plot twist to it. That is what keeps me from totally abandoning the book even when I already figured out the ending

Really talented authors are very unpredictable when it comes to their work. but some are just plain predictable, there's no sense in continuing reading..

Oh yes! I am a lot like you when it comes to my reading habits. If a book is too predictable, I lose interest. I then can't make myself read the whole thing. It gets very boring. On the other hand, there are some books that are enjoyable or inspirational and I can read them over and over again. Such books elevate my mood and spirit. :) Happy reading and myLotting

I would re-read books several times even though I've read them before. Usually books with simple characters and storylines. Danielle Steel's are enjoyable readings and I don't mind to read them over and over again.

i read the books even i fiqured out the ending ,, especially when the books is too expensive!!! i read it because maybe they have some extra moral lesson or extra thrills or they have some mystery. Maybe why you read it again and again because maybe that book is too good to you.. Like movies, i watched it again and again haha

I think Yes... Well I have read few books that have an ending like our old Hindi movies. The always Happy endings. You can make out the ending just by reading first few pages. But I have read the book not because of the ending but to know how they reached to such a happy ending. It also depends on the story is written. The words, the description is what keeps me interested in a book.

yeah like good movies which we like to watch again and again..we cannot predict the story line and sometimes it is very intriguing and we just hate to miss those best parts. thanks for sharing!

I am so bad. My attention span used to be so bad . . . I couldn't stand terribly long stories/books - so I'd take a peek at the ending. And then I'd go back to read how it came about - and that actually made me want to read although I knew the outcome! I especially did this in school - bad me!

Some books are very predictable and I find that a little boring. Even if it is good story, I tend to lose interest in the story if I am able to figure everything out. I love stories with a twist at the end. Sometimes I think that I have figured everything out, but when I read the last part of the book I discover that I was totally wrong, and that I didn't understand anything at all. I really enjoy books that are able to surprice me that way. "After the hole" by Guy Burt was one of the books which was written that way, and that is the reason why I liked it that much.

It depends on how I figured out the ending. Sometimes I'm super-happy when I've figured it all out and I get to the end and still like the book. Sometimes I'm just like, "Oh... well I know where this is going." But I'll still finish the book. I might not rate it as much though. When I'm re-reading a book it doesn't matter that I already know the ending because obviously I liked the book enough the first time to decide to read it again.
