The Top 20 books that Britons have lied most about reading

So, the book that most people have lied about reading is not War & Peace (it is at #4 in the Top 20) but Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As I have actually read he most-lied about book – if actually only recently precisely because I realised that I had actually never read it and found this to be shocking – and I currently reading, and enjoying, War & Peace, I thought it might be fun to make a book meme of it.

In italic are the books I have either half-read or are currently, and in the bold are the one’s that I have read (no lies involved), and umm… it’s not really that impressive. Need to add some books to my to read list.
