Musing Monday (March 1)

Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about boys and reading…





When reading do you read every word? Do you ever skip chapters or skim over parts? (question curtesy of Wendy)






PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks.






EDITED TO ADD: This question is clearly NOT about boys and reading... I'm copy/pasted and forgot to change it. Sorry about the confusion.









Interesting though this question is, I find it really hard to answer (thanks a lot, Wendy!). I guess I'd have to say that I don't consciously skim when I'm reading, but I suppose I would have to do my fair share of skimming here and there.





I have more of a tendency to get fixated on each word at times, reading and rereading sentences or passages over and over.
