Go read this article (or don't but pretend you did) from the Guardian about the reading amoral in the UK. 65% of those taking the survey said they have lied about reading a book. 48% admit to buying a book as a gift but reading it before gifting it. 62% admitted to turning down the corners of library books and 14% admit to writing in library books. What is the world coming to?
For the record, I have never lied about reading a book, read a book intended for a gift, or turned down the corner of any book. I may have written in a book or two over the years but never a library book. I have given used books as gifts but I've never tried to pass off my gift as new when it was used.
What about you? Are you a reading amoral? Be careful how you answer. I am an official member of the book police. ;)
