Yes, I think you seem to understand what I'm trying to put across, maybe I haven't explained fully.
Assuming this was the book of your life, you wouldn't be able to change anything ,if you could then this wouldn't be the book of your life from start to finish it would just be a biography, thus my suggestion that the person whom the book was written about could not read ahead, if you tried to read ahead, as stratos said, the book would account for this, thus it would just say"and he turned the next page, and he skipped 10 pages" you could not read past your own present because in the present you were reading the book, about your present and so on.
why not? why couldn't the book which is written about your whole life account for the time when you picked it up and read through it? you would pick it up, read your whole past and would then find that you could not read past the part of the book that accounts for your present.
