The Making of Jane Austen

New study finds 8 percent of those surveyed admit to lying about having read Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. Slightly more men lie about reading books than women. And 17 percent admit to lying about reading a book to impress a date. One suspects Austen would be unsurprised. See, for instance, her character John Thorpe in Northanger Abbey. https://www.thesun.ie/…/…/pretend-read-books-literary-liars/
