Watch people buying books live. (via @sesdublin)
10 books people lie about having read. I’ve read 1984, Ulysses and Dreams from My Father. Not read War and Peace, The Bible, Madame Bovary, Midnight’s Children, In Remembrance of Things Past by Marcel Proust, The Selfish Gene. I started A Brief History of Time but couldn’t get into it (overhyped?).
