Read through the whole book, but then stop it when it's near the end. Wait for a day before finishing the end of it.

How do you usually read an interesting book?

That's how I read my books. I know it sounds really weird, but I like it that way because it gives me more time to analyze what would happen, what I wanted to happen, and how much I would hate or love the end of it.

What about reading two or three books per night? Has anyone ever done that? I've seen my boyfriend does that. He reads one book and then stops at some part and he switches to another book; he does the same thing like the first one and then he'll change to the third one. He'll go to sleep after the third one. It's really strange to me. I asked him why he does that, he just said he likes it that way. I wonder if there is something in depth of that strange behavior.

It depends.

when i read romance books, i would definitely turn to the middle page after reading few pages. Then, turn to the end and scan through the whole story. It's quite weird but this is what i usually do.

Sometimes, i will read twice if the story is interesting. (but seldom happen) this is because you may find something difference which you didn't notice during your first reading.

;) Sometimes I do this, too. In addition to it I will highlight any interesting lines, phrases, words, etc. Before I iused to write my own opinions at the part where I find it confusing or interesting in the book. When I finished the whole book, my book would look completely like trash :lol: .
Lately, I have been borrowing books from the library, so I can't do that habit of mine anymore. It's disrespectful and rude to destroy public books. Thus, it usually takes me longer to finish the books since I have to copy down the interesting things I've found in the books. :(
