When reading do you read every word? Do you ever skip chapters or skim over parts? (question curtesy of Wendy)
I pretty much read every word if I'm reading something for pleasure. I NEVER skip chapters because I tend to miss out on things and then the book really doesn't make any sense. And, the only time that I skim is when something gets REALLY boring (like the whole middle part of The Historian for me) or if I'm reading an article and just trying to get the jist of it. For me, a big part of really enjoying what I read is seeing how the author uses language and specific terminology to convey their themes and characters. If I skimmed through things, I wouldn't be able to catch most of that. I read because I LIKE to read, so why wouldn't I read every word?
