Re: Does any one skim read
Skim reading is a necessary skill in school and business. People who DON'T know how to skim are at a disadvantage in life. I refuse to feel guilty about it. When I read for pleasure--it's my choice what I want to focus on.
For instance, when I re-read LOTR, I always skim over the parts I don't like much--like the whole beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring until they meet up with Strider, and the parts where Frodo and Sam are slogging through Mordor. I linger over my favorite parts. After all, I I've read the thing so many times I practically have the passage memorized--why not?
