Today’s Booking Through Thursday question is… “Do you read the inside flaps that describe a book before or while reading it?”
If I’ve never heard of a book before, I’ll check out the flaps to see if it looks interesting. But mostly I pick up books based on other book bloggers’ reviews, and then I try not to read the flaps because I have had bad spoilage moments in the past that I would like not to repeat.
However, I’ll admit to sneaking a peek at the flaps while I’m reading a book I’m not sure about; sometimes I just need some reassurance that the part I’m having issues with is not the main focus of the book. And if it is the main focus, then I have a reason to put down the book and walk away. 🙂
