Friday Roundtable: Books we lie about reading

Share story

In February we asked listeners to tell us what books they've lied about reading for our Thread Question of the Week. 

We were overwhelmed with calls from people who still feel guilty about skipping Moby Dick and others who refuse to admit that they haven't finished the Harry Potter series in front of their friends. 

To kick off our "Take it to the Lake" summer fiction series, MPR News Host Kerri Miller asked three local readers what books they lie about reading.  

Enrique Olivarez Jr. is Vice President of Development and Communications at Comunidades Latinas Unidas en Servicio.

Molly Mogren Katt is a writer and founder of the Hey Eleanor Project.

   R. Vincent Moniz Jr. is a writer and spoken word artist.
