Do you read the flap of a book before you read the book itself? Or do you want to be surprised? (2 question marks but really only 1 question.)
I'll answer my own question 1st. I do NOT read the flap at least until I have finished the book - or not at all. I don't want to know anything that happens before it happens. I start on page one, and, unlike Billy Crystal in When Harry Met Sally, who read the end of every book 1st, I never read ahead (well, almost never - but NEVER the end).
What do you all do?
