At the risk of appearing lazy, I prefer not to edit a book before I read it. There are major risks of encountering a misspelled word, and reading before and after the position of that word. Your mind may deduce plot elements based on a few phrases or sentences. There, you've done it. Ruined a perfectly good book, spoiling a plot surprise or twist. Quite easy to do with relatively short books, like the Maltese Falcon. Oh, don't tell me you found out about the true nature of Brigid O'Shaughnessy. Tsk, tsk.
