When reading do you read every word? Do you ever skip chapters or skim over parts?
I think this really depends on what I am reading. The books I have been reading lately I really love and I have been reading every single word. I wish I could say I had been so diligent in college but the amount of reading made that impossible. I had to skim then or there was no way I could get it all done. But I always at least skim, I never just skip things. Who knows, that could have been my favorite thing ever written and I would have missed it if I was in the habit of skipping things.
There have been times when I knew I read a book too fast and missed things too, and I usually try and go back and reread those books. This happened a lot with the later Harry Potter books. I wanted to zip through them really fast so I could have it read before all talk about it ruined plot points for me. The after I knew everything that happened I would go back and read it again to catch all the little stuff.
