Do you continue reading a book even when you have guessed the ending?
Most romantic novels (especially of the league of Mills and Boon) have happy endings - which essentially means - you know the ending, more or less. But still they are popular. Do you think its actually a challenge for the storyteller to keep the reader going? Do you reading the books to the end when you already know the ending?
Yes. I normally can guess the ending. However, I still read it. Is there another twist? How does she fix the relationships between the characters? I just like following the story.
Usually when I guess the ending to a book, movie or television show, I still enjoy watching it because I don't know how they're going to get to that ending. Plus, I usually just get it in the ballpark, I'm never 100% right. I read it because I like the characters, the writing style and the overall plot of the story. Predicting the ending doesn't negate all of that stuff.
If the only thing that interests you about a book is the broad outline of the plot, you're reading the wrong books. The language and the minor twists and turns should also fire your imagination. If your current read doesn't, there are plenty of authors who have that ability. Ditch the weak writers for those with substance.
Life's too short and there are too many books to read. Don't waste it on gargbage you don't enjoy. On the other hand, you won't hear me bashing ENJOYABLE garbage.

I was recently singing the praises of e-readers, saying how much paper they were saving. A friend looked at me and said, "You have got to be joking!" and explained how the amount of waste created by the development, distribution, and disposal of e-readers drawfed that of...

I have friends who tell me that they have "read" a book, when they have actually listened to it. This blurring of the lines bothers me; I consider reading a book and listening to it as two entirely different acts. Does this bother anyone else?Note: I am _not_ denigrating audiobooks....
