We asked our Twitter followers and our Facebook fans: What books are you embarrassed to admit you own? Here are some of your answers:
Laurel Snyder: "Maybe Jewel's 'poetry' collection?"
Denise Williams: "Atlas Shrugged"
Varian Johnson: "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Massage. Got it in college, so I could work my magic on 'the ladies.' " Then added: "Sadly, none of the ladies seemed interested...."
Alexis Whaley: "The Da Vinci Code."
Delphine Pontvieux: "'The Secret.' Sorry to whomever got it for me as a gift, but I could not even stand reading a full page. Blaaaarg!"
(We got a couple of votes for 'The Secret,' truth be told.)
Jason Sommer: "Definitely 'The Fountainhead.' Kinda 'Blink' - b/c I bought it before I read 'Tipping Point' & I coulda saved myself $10."
Steven Seighman: "BOTH of Ethan Hawke's novels."
