BOOK GUILT

The Best Book You’ve Never Read

Haven’t read Ulysses, but said you did? You’re not alone. According to The Guardian, a new study found that 64 percent of Britons are perfectly happy lying about what they’ve read. The book most people have lied about? George Orwell’s 1984. Next on the fib-list are War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy and James Joyce’s Ulysses. More intriguing, perhaps, is that 24 percent of survey respondents admit they’ve lied about reading the Bible.
