I rarely encounter substantive spoilers in the first 70 pages or so of
a book.  That said, I'm pretty much immune to spoilers; while I'm reading,
I'm usually ignoring anything I might have previously known about a
story, so it all works even if I've read it before.

Amusingly, I can't generally watch movies at normal speed.  They're
too boring.  Luckily, computers are finally advancing to a point where
"1.2x faster, but no chipmunks" is an available setting in some
software.
