My Perfect Excuse.

"I always read the last page of the book first so that if I die before I finish it, I'll know how it turned out. " - Nora Ephron, When Harry Met Sally
This strange and morbid statement has been my excuse for a strange habit for quite a long time now. I thought I would look for a new one after someone called me on it, after I found one person knowledgeable enough, brave enough, to tell me "You aren't that creepy, you aren't that weird, you stole that reason from some movie/book from the 90's, stop it. Think of something original or don't talk." Well, I have yet to find someone to tell me that so I guess I'll keep using it. I don't really know why I wrote about this today, maybe it's the weather, or the bowl of chocolate ice cream I just ate, maybe the milestone I have just reached (which wasn't such a good marker after all), the strange events which have recently taken place, or maybe more lack of originality, but its today's topic. Take it or leave it.

Reading the end first is fine so long as you figure out what happened in the beginning that lead to the said end.
As for me I like gnawing at the middle of the book and then trying to figure both the beginning and the end.
Keep a healthy habit alive :-)

Some books are better read backwards.

There is nothing wrong with quoting a movie in normal conversation. I know I do it all the time.
