Oh cool, I can do Booking Through Thursday on my book blog now! Yay! :)
This week’s question is:
Suggested by Prairie Progressive:
Do you read the inside flaps that describe a book before or while reading it?
Before. I admit that sometimes I buy a book because of its cover, but that’s only for some books, especially for my favorite authors. For books that I’m not entirely sure of, I read the back blurb or the inside flap.
Which brings me to an annoying observation: I hate it when the only thing at the back of the book is the picture of the author or all the praise the book got and nothing about the story. Especially when the book is still covered in plastic wrap and I can’t open it to read the inside flap. Hmph. Come on, leave something about the story at the back of your book, please. :|
So you? Inside flap or not?
