    It would have been nice to have more than 2 options, but I'll respond anyway. I generally want to learn about major plot twists in the novels, like Chewie's and Jimmy's deaths, but I want to remain unspoiled on plot points.

    I like to know certain things, but not deaths - they just depress me.

    I try not to know the whole plot of the book. And thats not hard to do, as it never really gets down to people like me (and most of the people here). But all the minor spoilers all the people in the know tease us with, sure.

    "In Rebirth Lando has Nabooian tile!" Example.

    Why not read them? Once I get the book I always end up looking ahead some anyhow. I think it's genetic, my mother is the worst. She always ends up reading the end pretty early on.

    I have very little will power when it comes to spoilers and I read them for the prequels, other movies and these books. However, there are times when I can restrain myself and I've honestly not been coming to these forums since too much has been revealed about Star By Star. I'd rather not learn that stuff 2 months before the book's release. But that's rather hypocritical since I've been reading AotC spoilers since TPM was released.

    I stay away from movie spoilers now. I read them for TPM and it took away a lot of suspense. For the books that doesn't bother me. I am less tempted by the movie spoilers anyhow because I didn't really like TPM.

    I decided to stop reading spoliers after I hear Anakin was going to die, which is not true! I hate death spoilers, and deaths too, When Chewie died I kinda just layed on my bed contimplating it.

    In less than four months, I will be going on a year-and-a-half break from all things SW and I spoil myself so I won't be too shocked. The first Simpsons I watched was Marge and Homer (are those their names?) walking out of Empire Strikes Back on a date and Homer says as they're walking past all the people waiting to see it for the first time, "I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! Who would have thought that Darth Vader is Luke's Dad?!" Or my brother, who every time he comes to someone getting through the Harry Potter books, says, "Oh, gosh. You haven't gotten to where they kill Ron yet, have you?"

    What's the point? We're not even to episode 2 yet and already episode 6 is spoiled for me.

    I read about Thrawns death before I read TLC. But when I got to the actual bit in TLC, I screamed NOOOOOOO!!!!!!! under my breath. And I meant it.
    I just told myself 'Thrawn doesn't die ' so much I believed it.

    Then you must have dropped your jaw in disbelief in the paragraph or so in SOTP where you think that Thrawn is alive. :)

    Well... I was in a chat with Mike Stackpole BEFORE I read onslaught and read the fact that Corran didn't get whacked... Still, when I was reading the book and the part where this was hinted to happen... I wailed and was shocked as Hell.

    I like spoilers, and love reading a synopsis before the book in some cases. WHy? Because it takes vithin long for me to get a book! I am a starving student in a faraway country, in a little town... Se the problem?

    With TPM I had read summaries and such before I saw it (Steptember 1999, two months after it came out in FInland) And I actually seriously considered reading the novellization two hours before seeing the movie!

    I love spoilers.
    Hell, on my fave TV shows they've showed the first 3 and 1 seasons (Series and the spinoff) But I've still read transcripts up to Season 5 and 2 AND spoilers for the next seasons.

    Can't help it. Too curious.

    I've chosen to be a missionary starting in January. I find out where I'll be going in mid-October. But we're not allowed internet access, movies, or any non-religious books. I'll be gone for a year and a half, so will be missing a lot of literature, Episode II, and the subsequent merchandising, but that's my choice. No matter how nuts all my friends say I am.
