reading from the middle to the start (Insanity #136)

Title: reading from the middle to the start

does anyone else know this habit... i can not read books in the right order, starting with the first page, it bores me to death.... i like taking random looks and i like guessing what might have happened and who the people are... if i like the book then i will usually continue until the end, then start from the beginning until where i originally started... maybe i like to take control... i don't like to be kept in suspense

Well i don't think i would be able 2 do that since i love 2 read and i always read in the right order it feels wrong if i miss one single word of the book!!

yeah, sometimes that causes some surprise... but i like it. so i am not a responsible reader... no one can punish me if i forget something or don't follow the plot... if i'd start from the beginning (including 'about the author') i have the feeling i need to remember every single word...

Surely the plot doesn't make any sense until you're read the whole thing?

It sounds like you can't wait for the plot to evolve or for the characters to develop.
