Getting down in Paris and London?

Umm.. it never occurred to me to lie about reading 1984 to impress a date, and surely nobody thinks finishing Ulysses is sexy.

"Nineteen Eighty-Four is the only entry on the list I have actually read. The others include War and Peace, Ulysses, and the Bible. Apparently people lie about having read all these books because they think it'll make them appear sexier. Which begs the question: who the hell earnestly believes that claiming to have read the Bible from beginning to end is going to get them laid? Mention your love of the New Testament on a date and you might as well stick a fork in your face and start screaming about ghosts."
