Americans Lie About Reading Books

According to a new Pew Research Center study, 73% of American adults say they have read a book in the past year. Okay. What book was it?

No, “the first five paragraphs of that long-ass Grantland story” is not a book.

I know you didn’t read A Time to Kill this year. You said that last year.

We look forward to another year of tacitly agreeing not to ask you what book you read if you don’t ask us what book we read. See you next year, America.
