top 10

Buzz Feed put together a list of the top ten books that people claim to have read, but haven't.

1.   1984 by George Orwell (42%)

2.   War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy
3.   Ulysses by James Joyce
4.   The Bible by God
5.   Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
6.   A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking
7.   Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
8.   In Remembrance of Things Past by Marcel Proust 
9.   Dreams from My Father by Barack Obama 
10. The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins
Maybe this tells you a little about my reading habits lately, but I haven't even heard of two of these.  Does this mean I'm too dumb to lie about how smart I am?


  1. I've read 50% of them. Not sure if that makes me smart or very dumb. I have not heard of 3 of them!

  2. I thought the Bible was written by King James. Hmmm. I guess I'll just wait for the movie. Where's Mel Gibson when I need him??
