Sunday Confessions January 16, 2011
This is a weekly meme started by yours truly as a way to get to share a bit about myself and also learning more about you. Sometimes its about books and book related topics and sometimes it's not. This is all in good fun and I would love it if you would participate.
To Spoil or Not To Spoil. That's this weeks question.
This week's topic is something I struggle with all the time: Spoilers. I don't like them. Whenever I read a review on another blog, if I haven't read the book, I usually just skip to their overall impression of the book. When I write reviews myself, I try my hardest not to include anything that might ruin the book for someone else. After all you can only read a book for the first time once. If someone tells you all the good parts before you even start reading then there is no magic, no surprises. Of course if I've already read the book, I love reading reviews to see what others have thought about it. So now the question goes out to you. Do you like spoilers? How much information do you like to see when reading a review? I would love to know your thoughts on the subject.
