Have you ever had a book that you have not previously read, spoiled? Did you forgo it after hearing the spoiler, or did you read it anyway despite it? Did you ever give away spoilers on a book? If so, shame on you, shaaaaaame on you.
The last two Harry Potter books in the series were so widely broad-cast, and everyone was discussing them, that spoilers were almost certain to happen. I read them as quickly as I possibly could just to avoid it. And I was right to worry too. As soon as it was discovered that a major character dies in book six, everyone, including non Harry Potter fans, were jumping on the spoiler wagon to spread the word of who it was, and how it happened. Apparently when a book is as big as Harry Potter, it is not only deemed appropriate, but also funny to blurt out the spoilers.
I will read a book despite a spoiler, but if it can be avoided it will be avoided. It dampers my reading experience to a certain degree, but I can still salvage it. And yes, I have had books spoiled for me before, but thankfully most people have the decency to contain themselves. If you can't hold it in, maybe you should try diapers. I know that a lot of people won't even read book descriptions, fearing that it will give away too much of the plot line. I won't read a book without reading the description first. I don't like going into a book blind and not knowing what to expect. The description is the one thing that makes or breaks it for me. Nobody wants to waste time or money on a book that doesn't grab their interest.
*Shuu* Describe a book, don't ruin a book.
