BTT : I Think I’m a Flapper

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

After reading some answers from other bloggers…I come to a conclusion that Flap is the summary on the book cover.

Please correct me if I am wrong…because I don’t know what’s the true meaning of FLAP.

If my interpretation is right…Then I am a flapper when it comes to Library books.

I hardly ever read any book reviews made by professional reviewers, I started reading review after joining book memes.

But…the books in Japan Foundation Library are rarely reviewed by any bloggers I know…so my only recommendation is what’s written on the cover. And so far it has gone so well.

Crossfire by Miyuki Miyabe, Sayonara Gangsters by Genichiro Takahashi, and Strangers by Taichi Yamada are few of many books I’ve chosen simply by reading the cover….and I finished those books with full satisfaction ๐Ÿ™‚

So how bout you?

Happy BTT ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. I think you’re onto it… you know how, when you get a hardcover book, the cover wraps around the hard part of the book, and there’s usually a description of the story written on it? That’s the flap. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. I interpret flap as the inside dust jacket- I flap when there’s a flap to flap but I read a lot of paperbacks so it’s not always possible! I like getting a little head start on what’s going on and usually find the summaries don’t give away too much. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. ADD ~ Attention Deficit Disorder… Basically, I’m easily distracted, have a hard time finishing anything and am a bit squirrelly and can’t sit still. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Since most of the books I read are either by recommendation from a friend or fellow blogger, or they’re books sent to me by the publisher for review (in which case, I read what it was about before accepting), then I usually already have an idea about the book and that I’ll probably like it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. @Alayne Yup it is good to be a flapper ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Marie For paperback, I’ve always read the back cover. I’m not a random reader, so just like you, I like to know what’s the book is about.

    @Mandy Hahaha I will ๐Ÿ™‚
