What is skimming?

Skimming is like a quick glance at a book or article to get a basic idea without reading every word. It’s like looking over the surface to see what’s important. People use skimming when they want to figure out what a text is about or find specific information without reading everything from start to finish. They might read headings, bold words, or the first and last sentences of paragraphs to quickly understand the main points. Skimming helps save time and decide if a text is worth reading more carefully.
