Here are a few of my excuses I give myself to condone my flipping ahead:
1.) I just need to know if they are going to get together because if they aren't I might as well stop reading this book right now. I really won't stop reading the book, but come on I need a little romance or the hope of romance.
2.) I need to know if this book is about to get good in the next chapter - should I stop for the night or do I need to forge ahead because what I have been waiting for might happen in the next 20 pages. This is how I cause myself to stay up to 2 in the morning reading.
3.) I need motivation to keep going. I need to know something big is still coming.
I am sure there are more excuses I give myself, but I have to wonder am I hurting my experience and the surprises just as when I read the previews for the next four Mortal Instruments books when I am not even finished with City of Bones? The real question is how do I stop?
