It's my mom's birthday today, September 18th, so I decided to go ahead and dedicate a bookish post about her and her famous funny reading habit.
My mom loves to read. She's always loved books, and while her reading taste is eclectic, her favorite ones to devour are Mysteries and Crime Thrillers. She rarely has time to read now that she has such a busy schedule, but sometimes, she picks up a book, and takes the time to sit down, relax, and tries to finish it. The thing with her though is that while she loves mysteries, she simply can't -- and I mean, absolutely can not -- stand the wait and the suspense! So what she does is.. she goes to the last few chapters/pages and reads from there. She finds out who the suspect is, what the twist is, and how everything will end. When she's done doing this, she goes to back to the first chapter and begins to read with all that knowledge already in her head. She just can't stand not knowing.. I keep telling her she's weird and I would never be able to do that! But that's just how she has always been, and the truth is, she's even like that with slow movies too! I really don't know anybody else with that kind of reading style, so I thought I'd share. Hahaha.
Happy Birthday, Mommy. I love you!
