Okay?/Not Okay?

When you buy a book as a gift for someone, is it okay to read it first? I don't do it because: 1) There is usually not enough time between purchase and gift-giving occasion. 2) I am too accident prone. More likely-than-not I would wind of spilling coffee, ripping a page, or sneezing (yuck!). What do you think? Is it okay to read a book before giving it as a gift?

Of COURSE it's okay to read it first, if you're very very careful. You have to know for sure if the book is right, don't you? Not too many typos, margins all even, all the words in the right places, pages numbered consecutively and so on? Sure, you do!

Naturally, though, if it's one of OUR books you need to buy two copies. Naturally.
