If you found a book of your life, would you read to the end?

I think there was a twilight zone about this, or one of those shows. Interesting question. No, I wouldn’t. Part of living life is the not knowing what’s around the corner.

I don’t know, I would be tempted to skip to the end just to see if everything worked out ok!

Right now, I would. I have a lot of anxiety and pessimism about my future that’s mostly career-related. Reading to the end of the book would probably give me perspective on what’s important, whether that’s good or bad.

It would be tempting for sure. There is so much that my husband and I are just figuring out and settling down (work, being married, finances, etc.) that it would be really cool to see how everything comes together to create our life together. How many kids do we actually end up having? Where do we end up living for most of our lives? Are we good parents to our kids? Etc., etc. etc. Ultimately, I wouldn’t do it though. I am an avid reader and know I was always mad at myself when I did that when I was younger. I think the wisdom you have as an older person comes from truly living through the experiences of your life. I wouldn’t want to jeopardize that. Like I said though…really tempting.

Oh man i really don’t know. I’d be tempted to, I’m so curious lol but I’d be freaking out if I found out my book was shorter than it should be…

Question: Does the cook have a summary on the back or inside flap? I’d read that part and try my absolute hardest to not read any farther than the current moment… BUt that prolly wouldn’t ever happen once I start a book I have a hard time stopping. So I’d probably just stay as far away from it as possible!

If it is a book of your life, I am pretty sure the ending is the same for all of us….. lol! Only certainties in life, death and taxes 😛

ZebraPrintMe:  Absolutely not!  If it’s about my life it would also be about people in my life and that would just too much to deal with. There are just some things you don’t want or need to know in advance. I want to enjoy each moment as it comes; planning for tomorrow without having to worry about knowing all of its twist ‘n turns, and its good ‘n bad that awaits me.

Maybe not the end, but perhaps a chapter or three ahead of the present?
