Would You Admit It?

Even if it were true that you had never read one single book in your entire life, would you be big enough a fool to admit it? Apparently so, if your name is Victoria Beckham. According to this article from BBC News, Mrs. Beckham claims never to have read a book despite the fact that she has "written" her own autobiography. I don't blame her for not reading that one.

"And some, including Victoria Beckham, claim never to have read a book at all."
The article concerns the debate over whether or not the decline in reading rates around the world is anything to be concerned about or whether books have been replaced by other reading sources. But I have to admit that it tickles me to have Victoria Beckham so readily confirm my previous impressions about her extreme shallowness. Thanks, Victoria.
