Flaps? (BBT)

Do you read the inside flaps that describe a book before or while reading it?

Both. I usually read it a few times, once before and a few times while I'm reading the story, to sort of get a feel for how close the end is, or what kind of twist I think is coming next. I like to know what's going to happen and why, if I'm buying a book and can't get enough of a hook to make the book worth buying, I put it back, even if the cover looks interesting and it's on clearance. ^_^ I'd rather buy a book I want to read.

Absolutely! How else can you tell what the story is going to be about? It also shows how important that is for the author to get that part just right.

love you,
