Booking Through Thursday

Question of the day:
Have you ever bought a book, started reading it and then realized you have already read it? If so, how far did you get? (Can you tell this happened to me for the first time ever this week!?!)
Well, I rarely buy books. (And when I do it's usually at a library sale or thrift store.) But this has happened to me with library books.

I've been reading happily along and suddenly realize that I know exactly what happens at the end, who the bad guy is, why he did it, and how the detective is going to solve it.

Even I am not usually that good. So I conclude that I've read it before.

Whether I continue reading or not depends on how much I enjoyed it the first time.

What about you? Ever been excited to read a book only to discover that you've already done so?

It happens, I usually realize it right off.

It hasn't happened to me yet but I bet it can be a little annoying!

LOL, it is frustrating, especially with mystery books where the suspense is the best part.
