Some of these books would be so obvious, that they would not have read it. I would be much more likely to believe someone read the "Guns of August". But someone claiming to have read Durant's "History of Civilization" I would be more suspicious of that claim.

I've only read:

The Bible (partial)
Guns of August

Hardly braggadocios enough to be lying, but ya never know!

If someone asked me "Have you read X" my answers would be truthful, and would vary between "Yes", "No" and "So long ago I remember little/nothing from it".
Unless defending some point for which I have no legitimate evidence.

I have to admit I have not read all of them – but I did slog through "The History" (albeit not in Greek)

I have read about 75% of them. I even have three copies of Sun Tzu.

Of course….I could be lying.

Again three
I haven't read. perhaps this poll should be reversed?
