Do you read the end before you read the book?

My sister and I always have this debate. I am a firm believer of you do not skip pages and you do not spoil the end for yourself. She on the other hand will not read a book unless she likes the end.
What is your take?
Do you read the entire last chapter or just peek at the last page, or are you like me who will not ruin the ending for yourself?
