    Post reading habit

    Please help to improve grammAtical mistakes in the below writing.

    THANKS IN ADVANCE.

    I have a very bad habit of looking into the conclusion of a book before actually I am done with the reading of the whole book. Lately I started reading a book, "Flowers for Algernon" when I came up to page 200 I recalled my bad habit and went the last page to see Actually what happened at the end of the story. So, I just browsed the last pages instead of reading it thoroughly. But, still want to read those pages again before I return the book to the library. At the beginning it was an easy reading but later on it was bit challenging for me with a lot of vocabulary.
