I was just wondering: Are you a Flapper? Or Not A Flapper?
Do you read the inside flaps that describe a book before or while reading it?
I usually briefly look over a paragraph or two on the flap. But, most of the time I like to read the book first. Why? Because sometimes the flap reveals information about the plot or developments that I would rather discover by reading the book.
However, if I'm not familiar with the author, I may read the flap to see if it is a story that would interest me. I always like to read the little write-up about the author usually on the back flap.
So usually I read the flap in it's completeness after I read the book.
