Last week as I was clicking through news articles online, I came across an interesting one on Reuters. The article presents a study done by World Book Day, which found that “two out of three Britons have lied about reading books that they haven’t.”
I will admit that I am one of those that have lied about reading certain books. How else do you think I survived my high school literature classes? As a sophomore in high school, I had no desire to read 1984 and Portrait of an artist as a young man. Thankfully, I was smart enough to use Masterplots to pass the test. If only I had J’Nai’s recommendation, I would have perhaps done better on my essays. And, please do not judge me harshly or follow my lead; I have reformed and can now honestly admit what I have and have not read!
Are you an honest reader? Any books that you say you’ve read, but haven’t?
