So many interesting answers! Thanks to everyone who shared their reading habits.
It seems that there are three kind of readers: (it would be interesting to know if there are any scientific papers on reading habits)
- The ones who never ever read the end first because they dislike spoilers and can't enjoy a book with knowing the end.
- The ones who may peek from time to time.
- The ones who always peek (like me!) because they enjoy a book more this way and because they don't want to buy/read a book with a sucky ending.
Years ago I read a book and loved it but when I read the end it was so bad and wrong. I was actually quiet mad because I had spend my time reading a book and then the end just sucked. From that moment one I started reading the end first.
I also like spoilers because otherwise I tend to think a lot about the books I read and get way too anxious.
I think it's great that not everyone reads a book the same way.
Everybody should read a book exactly like he/she wants and shouldn't listen to what others say is "the right way" or "normal".
