Hosted by Bookish Ardour, here’s a blurp I’ve excerpted from the topics section of her blog in regards to this challenge:
In an effort to consistently create content on BA I thought I would take part in a 30 day blogging challenge… At first I thought why not do that for 30 weeks and then realized that was close to six months, so why not 26 weeks instead? Then I thought what if other bloggers want to have a challenge to keep up with blogging, but also don’t want to blog every single day? This is why I have come up with the 26 Posts Book Blog Challenge and am sharing it with everyone. This challenge has a focus on books, book blogs, and personal topics scattered throughout.

This week’s topic:
Book Lies: Have you ever lied about reading a book (if so, what was it)? Would you?
Fortunately, I’ve never reached a point where I’ve needed to lie about a book I have or haven’t read. Since I’m of the few in my close group of friends that really reads anything (often) I read more than my fair share of weird books. But as for the mainstream, I try to save myself from most book-talks in my other groups 🙂
As for the sub-question “would I”, plainly, no. I have never felt a reason to say I have read something just for the credit. It later forces me to actually read it. I just don’t want to be put into a position where I have to read a book just for the sake of satisfaction and awkwardness.
Have you ever lied about reading a book?
