I wonder if this sentence is right:
Is the above sentece right?? I guess not. ("from cover to cover" is for the book reading, right? )I didn't watch the movie from cover to cover.
By this I want to say "I kept dragging the play button and skipped many bits. "
I know it must be wrong but how to rephrase it ?
I completely agree that "from start to finish" is the corollary for "from cover to cover" but it means you watched every minute/read every page.
If you skipped a bunch of it, I don't know what you would say. You "skim" a book. What's the equivalent for a movie?
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
