Q. "Do you read the ending before you start a book? Do you ever skip ahead to read the ending?"
Sometimes I will take a "peek" for maybe a name. I don't like to actually read the ending, I just sometimes want to know who the person ends up with so that I don't get too invested in a character that "hits the road" so to speak. So I sometimes will check for a name in the last pages while trying not to get too much other information.
