Okay, I'm totally annoyed right now.  Is it just me or are some of the book synopses on the back covers complete SPOILERS?  Geez, I was putting the last of the Kitty Norville series on my WL and I was reading the backs to see what was upcoming and it totally spoiled it for me.  Anybody else find this infuriating??

I'm more annoyed when the back cover isn't accurate. The ones I notice take a minor item or something that happens really late in the book and make it sound like that's the core of the story.  Is it unfair to expect the overview to actually reflect the story??

There was one book that I reviewed where the character on the back cover was the wrong name!  On the back cover, they call a character "Norma" but in the book she's "Irma"!
