Style Saturday is a meme hosted by me where each week I present a prompt about reading style and explain my answer. Feel free to join in with your answer in the comments or leave a link to your Style Saturday on your blog.
Do you have a suggestion for Style Saturday? Let me know! (Seriously folks, my list of ideas is shrinking otherwise Style Saturday may be done for a while.)
This weeks: Major Spoilers
How do you feel about the big spoilers of a book. Do you stick your fingers in your ears and start humming whenever someone even brings up the title of a book you haven’t read yet (or are currently reading)? Do you cut yourself off from the outside world until you’re finished with a book so nothing is ruined? Or are you more lax about spoilers?
I used to be pretty uptight about not wanting a book to be ruined. I’d jump down someone’s throat if they tried to ruin the book for me. Now I’m more lax about the situation.
Obviously I don’t want a book spoiled if I’m currently reading it. As far as books I’d like to read in the future, I’m not concerned with spoilers. It’s not a huge deal if I read or hear one. I read a lot of books so there’s a pretty good chance I’ll forget about the spoiler by the time I get to the book. No harm done!
How do you feel about big spoilers?

I’m pretty good at forgetting so I don’t get too worried about spoilers. I mean, I reread books all the time and while I might remember the really big plot points, I still forget how the book gets to them. So if someone in passing says something, chances are it will be long forgotten before I read the book.
