Booking through Thursday

Since school is out for the summer (in most places, at least), here’s a school-themed question for the week:
Do you have any old school books? Did you keep yours from college? Old textbooks from garage sales? Old workbooks from classes gone by?
How about your old notes, exams, papers? Do you save them? Or have they long since gone to the great Locker-in-the-sky?

Oh, yes I do have some old school books, library school and university books. I haven’t kept them all, but I do have my school books from A Level History and English (I didn’t keep the French), some old, and I mean old, text books and even some from O Levels. I also have my school report book and some copies of the annual school magazine; you got mentioned if you played in the school teams (lacrosse for me) and the exam results are listed.

This week we’ve been trying to de-clutter and I decided to look through my university papers and throw them out, but I just couldn’t do it. So, they’re still here, although when I’ll actually look at them again, let alone read them, I just don’t know.

Do you cheat and peek ahead at the end of your books? Or do you resolutely read in sequence, as the author intended?
And, if you don’t peek, do you ever feel tempted?

I’m always tempted to look at the end of books and sometimes I do if the book is getting boring to see if it picks up. If the book is one that I can’t put down then I try to resist looking ahead – not always successfully though and then I wish I hadn’t!
