Booking Through Thursday Flap or Not?


Suggested by Prairie Progressive:
Do you read the inside flaps that describe a book before or while reading it?
If the book grabs me on the first two pages, I don't read the flap unless I hit a confusing patch in the novel. If I start wondering why I'm reading, then I'll read the flap. However, I like the option of reading the flap or not reading the flap. Pet peeve: publishers and authors that don't write anything useful on the flap.

Oh yes... useless flap info. So annoying! My post is here.

I do that too...I always refer to the flap when I'm struggling to get into a book. And I also hate it when the flap doesn't contain any useful information :/

I'm glad I'm not the only one with this pet peeve :-)
