    I'll jump on a bit in the story.

    Hello everybody!

    Suppose that somebody is talking about a book.

    Does "I'll jump on a bit in the story" mean "I will skip/omit a bit of material in the book and go on to discuss the necessary portion in the story"?

    Thank you.

    To me, it means, "I'll leave out a bit of the story." It doesn't say whether this means reading it, or discussing it.

    My guess is they are skipping ahead a bit, so you might be right.
