When skimming a magazine (or book or newspaper) do you flip through the pages from front to back or back to front?

    This is a VERY good question! Hubby and I print 2 magazines. Sometimes clients complain when they are in the back of the book, but we tell them people are known to read from back to front.

    As for me, I start at the front.

      You print two magazines? What kind of magazines are they? Where do I get a copy?

        One is a real estate magazine and the other a rental guide. I can mail you copies, or you can view our virtual magazine online. Our website is http://www.aroundtheriver.com Our graphic designer is excellent. I love her work.

          That’s COOL Jean! So you and hubby are pround owners of a printing company? I checked out the virtual magazine and it is AWESOME! Your graphic designer does a great job for sure. 😀

    Front to back unless there’s some article I want to read, then I skip to that.

    Back to front, but then I’ve always done things backasswards!

    I go to the index and see if there is anything I want to read first and go to it…otherwise it’s front to back.

    If I am interested Front to Back…If I’m not I might go from back to front.

    I start in the back of magazines. As for a newspaper, I start in the life section. 🙂 Then funnies. 🙂

    I always start from the back. I thought I was the only weird one so it’s nice to see I’m not alone! 🙂

    From front to back. Is this a trick question?

  13. January 31, 2010 8:42 PM

    I read books and newspapers from front to back but magazines I always read back to front. I’m weird. LOL

  14. January 31, 2010 9:19 PM

    With me…it depends on how I am feeling at the time. If I have time to relax….front to back. If I am in a hurry….I go everywhere! LOL
