I'm fed up of thinking I have a nice long, satisfactory ending to look forward to because there are quite a few pages left in the book I'm reading, only to find the story wound up in a few pages, and the last pages are the first chapter of a new book. I don't read them. I'm still fuming about being short changed by the book I have just finished. Why do they do it? It actually puts me off the author and the books. I don't want to read one chapter and then have to go looking for the book and I want the book I was reading to have the nice long ending I expected.
