One day, I was talking to a friend on the telephone about what my sister said about my book, Addiction. My friend told me there are parts of a book she skims. I didn't think to ask her what part because I was too stunned? lol
My first thought was why buy a book and skip any part of it? Then, I thought about it some more. I had just finished reading a NY Times best seller, and I remembered reading some parts of the story quickly to get to the action. I love to read romantic suspense, mysteries and espionage, but when they put in more than a sentence or two of setting, I tend to pass over them. I want to find out what is going to happen next.
Other people skip love scenes and some skim over description of characters if there's too much. Anything that is excessive readers tend to skip over.
Have a wonderful week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
