Suggested by Monibo:

Saw this article (from March) and thought it would make a good BTT confessional question:

Two-thirds of Brits have lied about reading books they haven’t. Have you? Why? What book?

    I took a different twist with this. I’m in doubt that celebrities really read those classic novels that they are telling the world are their favorites.

    This was a tough one. I went more with a guilty pleasure since there aren’t really any books I would feel ashamed to admit reading. Anyway, below is my link at Bookworm Nation.
