    Voted other (before I fall asleep) but usually end of chapter. If it's one of those I can't put down, end of book.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    I have to stop at the end of a chapter. I'll be running out the door carrying my book finishing up a chapter just because I can't stop any other place.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    End of the chapter or the next break point.
    Fat does not make you fat. It's actually pretty important.

    I just stop whenever then pick up from where I left off. Often I wont even mark the page, I just tend to remember it.

    If it is a very good book, I wont stop until it is finished- I have read through many a night lol

    I usually stop at the end of a paragraph, sometimes if the end of a chapter is close I'll try to make it to the end of the chapter.

    Wherever. I read the most while at work, so I actually do have to stop for emergencies.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    I try to stop at the end of a chapter. I mostly read before bed and read one chapter per night. It gives me something to look forward to and makes a good book last longer.
