Monday Musings

This week the Monday Musings question from Should Be Reading is the following: Do you tend to read to the end of a chapter or can you stop anywhere?

Lately I’ve been sneaking in my reading whenever I can, which has included using little snippets of time at the end of which I have to put down the book – no matter where I am.  But when I have all the time in the world, I certainly prefer to reach the end of the chapter or a good stopping point.  Of course, there are also those wonderful books which it’s simply impossible to put down even if you are at the end of the chapter.  With that sort of book, I just try my best to only pick it up if I have plenty of time to devote to reading 🙂

What about you? Are you able to stop anywhere in a book or do you have to finish a chapter?

    I really try to be a chapter reader. It’s rare that I stop mid-paragraph. I wish I could be more like that!

    • I wasn’t always able to just stop, but a lot of times I’m reading while I wait on an experiment to finish in the lab so being able to stop right away has become necessary. I still much prefer being able to read as long as I want though!

  2. I try to read to the end of a chapter but if I’m unable to do that, I’ll read to a paragraph break.

    • That makes sense. If I can’t make it to the end of the chapter, I always try to find somewhere that doesn’t feel like a cliff-hanger ending and paragraph breaks can be good for that 🙂
