Apologies and chapter names

Hello fellow book lovers!

First off let me say sorry for the prolonged silence. I have been busy reading, just not reviewing! I haven’t really an excuse either, as I have read some wonderful books so far this year. (How is it already September!?) I have just spotted that I have one drafted from January – that seems like forever ago! Which I’ll edit up and put out there after the weekend at some point!

Any who….

I realised something about my reading late last night that I’d like to talk about! .

I don’t ever read chapter names. I don’t know why I’ve only just realised this having been reading for years or even why I don’t. I was nearing the end of my book and read something that I couldn’t quite understand WHY it was there. Realising I must have I missed something I started going back a few pages and as I neared a previous chapter I spotted it in the chapter name – Now, who knows what else I may have missed by not reading all of the chapter names? I’ve been trying to figure out why I don’t read them and I guess I find them distracting. Maybe I try to avoid reading anything that might give even a hint of the story away? I’m still not sure! I even skip dates and times in books too which I have to admit can sometimes get confusing.

I suppose I should start reading them, however I’ve never been conscious that I was a chapter skipper until last night – how is that so?! Luckily my latest book just has regular numbers!

Anyone else out there a chapter name skipper?
