On the Practice of Predictive Reading:

It is smart reading to make predictions as you go. Good authors give you valid clues to the plot, but also try to mislead you with false tipoffs -- the more you practice predictive reading, the better you’ll get at spotting these. (We bet you already do this at the movies!)

As you read another book, form your own questions that will lead to predictions. Perhaps start your questions with “I wonder whether” or “Her next obstacle will be”. At the beginning of each chapter, stop and predict the ending. See if you are right. Pat yourself on the back, if you are..
