The web is rife with guesses and those saying they have the book and know the end.
My question is, why all the hoopla? Spoilers are never a problem for me. If I know the end, so what? If the book is a good story, I will still enjoy reading it.
I guess this is because I deal with this issue all the time. You see, I don't go to movie theaters to see movies (multiple reasons). I always wait until the movie comes out on DVD and then watch it, so because of that I usually know all about the movie to begin with. Thanks to papers, reviews, ads, friends and family, I pretty much know every nuance of the movie before I ever get a chance to see it - and that's not a problem. Like the books, if it's a good movie, I know I'll enjoy it anyway.
And like a good book or a good movie, if I really enjoy it, I'll probably read/watch it again and again. In which case I'll know the ending anyway. But it doesn't dampen the enjoyment for me. I always manage to find something new that I may have missed the first (or tenth) time through.
So spoilers? Bring 'em on. Not a problem.
But in just this case, I prefer to read the book myself. :)

Tips and Teasers: On July 20, 1985, Mel Fisher's crew found the sunken 'Atocha' off the Florida coast. The wreck was loaded with silver, gold and emeralds. Pretend you're with them as they bring up the bounty. How do you feel? Do some research and find out about the ship and when and why it sank.
